Sagna Set To Sign For Man City

Arsenal right-back, Bacary Sagna,has reportedly agreed a three-year contract with Manchester City.

The Daily Mail reports that Sagna’s new contract will earn him £150 000 (R 2.6 million) per week after he successfully passed his medical on Monday.

City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was reportedly forced to fend off late interest from Manchester United to secure Sagna’s services.

But Van Gaal’s 11th hour attempt to hijack the deal came too late and the 31-year-old could now play his first official match as a City player against Arsenal in the Community Shield.

Sagna leaves the Gunners on a free transfer and follows in the footsteps of Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri, Kolo Toure and Gael Clichy, who all left Arsenal to join City.

After a long contract-saga, Arsenal had tried to tempt Sagna with a new improved deal, but were not prepared to offer him the massive salary he will get at the current Premier League champions.

The Frenchman had been eight years at Arsenal and crowned his Gunners career with the FA Cup, but was upset how his contract situation was handled by Arsene Wenger and the club’s hierarchy.
