Swap twist to Tevez and Nasri story

Samir Nasri and Carlos Tevez dominate the headlines once again, with the Sun plumping for a swap story involving both players.

The latest twist to this long-running saga is that Arsenal now want the Argentine striker to head south to them allowing the talented Frenchman to move up the M1 and the M6 (and maybe the toll road).

"Arsenal have sensationally told Manchester City: Give us Carlos Tevez and you can have Samir Nasri," says Shaun Custis' piece. "Hitman Tevez has been trying to get out of Manchester all summer.

"And with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger under growing pressure to bring in a top buy, the Gunners have suddenly come up with their shock proposal."

Shaun goes on to give us the thoughts of an "Arsenal insider" - "Nasri wants to get to City, Tevez wants to get out and Wenger needs a new star to get everyone off his back. It seems like win-win all round." Business-speak creeping into football reporting there...

Roberto Mancini's pre-match press conference on Friday provides plenty of copy all over the papers and the web, and you can compare & contrast with how it was reported with parts one and two of the video now available to view on citytv - for free, as always.

Sergio Aguero has mastered this internet lark, tweeting away like a good 'un and giving an update on his first fortnight at City to his own web site, which our chums over at Vital ManCity have translated. It seems he's settling in well, he likes Manchester and the professionalism he's seen at the club:

"They are super professionals. They are treating me very well. There is a big squad and a big motivation here. I have much gratitude to City for giving me this opportunity."
