Manchester City star Samir Nasri has asked club bosses to OK his move to the Vicente Calderon Stadium.
The Man City winger is said to have his heart set on joining Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid.
Although the move is expected to go through, negotiations are believed to have stalled on Manchester City's asking price for the player.
Atletico Madrid's initial bid of €29 million was considered to be too low, according to club insiders.
