They will sell Nasri, Kompany and Yaya Toure to get me!
SLAVEN BILIC has joked that Manchester City are willing to sell Samir Nasri, Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure to make him their next manager.
Reports last week suggested that City were lining up the former Everton and West Ham defender to replace Manuel Pellegrini in the summer. courtesy of express
But Bilic - currently in charge at Turkish side Besiktas - has laughed off the claims.
"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."
City face Barcelona in the Champions League and currently trail Chelsea by seven points in the race for the Premier League title.
And while Pellegrini could come under pressure should he fail to deliver at least some silverware this season there is no suggestion that the Manchester outfit are willing to part with key players to land a replacement.
Kompany and Nasri remain key members of the Citizens' squad but recent reports have suggested that Yaya Toure could leave the Etihad at the end of the season, with Inter touted as a possible destination.
