Manchester City will sell Nasri, Kompany and Yaya Toure to get me, jokes Bilic

The former Croatia boss has been linked with a shock move to the Etihad and he has joked that the English champions are willing to cash in on their top talent to acquire him


Slaven Bilic has joked that Manchester City are willing to sell Samir Nasri, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany in order to acquire his services.

Reports earlier this week suggested the Besiktas boss could be tempted to take over from Manuel Pellegrini in the summer if City decide to part company with the Chilean.

When quizzed about the interest, Bilic issued a lighthearted response, but also reaffirmed his commitment to the Turkish club, who currently lie one point clear of Fenerbahce at the Super Lig summit.

“Yes, I have already received an offer from Manchester City, they said they will sell Nasri, Kompany and Yaya Toure to get me!” he told Tportal.

“No, there is no offer, my thoughts are only with Besiktas.”

While Nasri and Kompany appear content at the Etihad, Toure has been heavily linked with a summer departure, with Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini hoping to lure him to Italy in the summer.
