Sagna to decide between Chelsea and Manchester City

Sagna to decide between Chelsea and Manchester City

Bacary Sagna
Bacary Sagna is contemplating of leaving Arsenal in the summer

On their last home game, Arsenal fans chanted Bacary Sagna’s name, requesting the French defender to sign a new contract and stay at the club. Arsene Wenger hopes that plea from the fans’ might force Sagna to change his mind.


The 31-year-old defender will be out of contract at the end of the season and can join any clubs in the world on a free transfer. The right-back has been ever present for the Gunners this season and demands a justified pay hike.

However, Arsenal have an internal policy of dealing with contracts for players over the age of 30, and L’Equipe says Arsenal have offered a 3-year-contract extension, worth €50k per week, which is far below from the amount Chelsea and Manchester City can offer.


Turkish giants Galatasaray are also thought to be interested to sign him, but Sagna wants to continue his career in England, and would chose between Chelsea and Manchester City next season.


Well, he has been a loyal servant for the club and no one can question over his commitment. He has every right to chose a club that can match his wage demands. And as it stands Arsenal are not willing to increase his salary, which means Sagna’s future at the club is almost as good as over.

Opinion: Will Ross Barkley miss out on Brazil?

  1. he is NOT going to beat Ivanovic out of the right fullback spot unless Brana plays at CB when Luiz leaves (and maybe JT too) but Mourinho loves his physicality and directness and hear, he is a Mou player through and through.
    and Zabaleta is another physical right back that I dont think he will be able to dislodge.
    i dont see at those two clubs….maybe at 2-3 other top 7 clubs they older need right backs….

  2. Ok for Sagna to leave , wenger and his policies ??? The guy has bn loyal to the club but wenger has no eyes to see. Loosing another key player is a blow to Arsenal and thats why it wil take 20 yrs to win EPL OR CL under wenger. useless transfer policy , player wages always keepa away good players from joining the club

  3. Arsenal should know or learn to pay their players well. What is $50k that someone of Sagna’s caliber is receiving? Were it that Sagna was an English player they will be paying him close to $120k. Arsenal should wake up to reality and stop this nonsense they are doing.
