Nasri who doesn’t get along with Deschamps, has ruled out a U-turn, saying even if his father was at the helm, he would not return.

“Even if my dad is coach, I will not return,” he said on French television.

“I’ve suffered with the selections… missing a World Cup destroys you a bit. After 2012 I wanted to stop but my father told me I had to play the World Cup. I tried to be good.

“I had a great season with my club before the 2014 World Cup. I had very good stats – it was not enough. No disrespect to anyone but when I saw the list and some of those on it?

“I’m not perfect. I have my faults, but when you’re a great coach you manage the egos.”

He remains happy at the Etihad, although he does have his eye on a spell in the United States later in his career.

“I do not see myself returning to Ligue 1. I love the Premier League. I like my life in England,” said Nasri.

“I see myself going to play in the MLS, to discover something other than France.”
