The influential France international is currently contracted to City until the summer of 2015, but is eager to prolong his time with Manuel Pellegrini's team.

Nasri has featured in 22 of City's 26 Premier League games so far this term, scoring four times, and has made six Champions League appearances.

City's ambition of lifting the Champions League trophy in coming seasons attracts Nasri, who scored in the 3-1 Capital One Cup final triumph over Sunderland last weekend.

"Talks? I know they are planned," he told L'Equipe.

"The officials called my agent to tell him we have to talk. Then, we will see.

"The objective is to win the Champions League in a few years' time.

"But when you are happy somewhere, I can't see why you should have to change scene."

City will look to reach the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday when they take on holders Wigan at the Etihad Stadium before looking to overcome a 2-0 first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
