Bacary Sagna Confirms Arsenal Exit


bacary sagna 2419603b Arsenal Star Confirms Emirates Exit Bacary Sagna has revealed that he will no longer be an Arsenal player next season.

The French international is a free agent in the summer transfer window and had rejected a chance to sign a new deal. He claims Arsene Wenger’s side had offered him an offer and the talks over signing an extension did not go in a direction as he had wished.

“It’s no longer a secret, I will leave Arsenal for sure,” Sagna toldL’Equipe.

“They tried to make an effort, but the discussions have not gone in the direction I wished it. There are a lot of calls, a lot of speculation. Frankly, it gives headaches. I’ll sort it all out before the start of the World Cup.”

Recent reports had suggested that he could join Manchester City on a free transfer, while the Citizens’ neighbours Manchester United were believed in signing him as their new manager Louis van Gaal was reportedly keen on securing the right-back’s services.

The French defender is likely to join City in the summer transfer window. It is believed that City are willing to offer a four-year deal on a personal terms of £100,000-a-week.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have already prepared as they were resigned to losing Sagna in this transfer window. The Gunners have set their sights on Toulouse full-back Serge Aurier.

Aurier has admitted that it would be hard to turn down an offer from Arsenal. The 21-year-old Ivory Coast international is one of brightest players of the Ligue 1 and the young right-back will make a good addition to the North London club’s squad.
