Nasri: I'm bitter, I'm angry and I'm off

Samir Nasri has admitted he is on the brink of leaving Arsenal after claiming his transfer saga has left him "bitter and angry."
Nasri is expected to move to Manchester City in a £22million deal in the next few days, having refused to sign a new contract at the Emirates.
The French midfielder, suspended for last night's Champions League game against Udinese and not selected against Newcastle on Saturday, has fallen out with Arsenal fans, who branded him greedy in obscene chants at St James' Park.
Nasri, talking on his Facebook account, responded: "It's nearly done. But I will leave with bitterness and anger in my heart.
"I am proud for having played with the Gunners.
"I've been very disappointed by the supporters last weekend.
"I am still an Arsenal player but I will certainly leave very soon."
Last night the club initially confirmed that they believed the Facebook account belongs to Nasri.
Nasri also blasted Arsenal fans on Twitter on Monday, and his exit promises to be far more acrimonious than Cesc Fabregas' move to Barcelona.
City will more than treble Nasri's current wages, after offering him a £180,000-a-week contract to move to the Eastlands.
But the Frenchman has become public enemy number one among Arsenal fans.
