Transfer news: Manchester City reportedly lining up move for Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna
Frenchman could follow well-trodden path to Manchester
Monday 27 January 2014
Manchester City are considering a summer move for Arsenal's Bacary Sagna, according to reports.
Arsenal have been a popular target for transfers for Man City over recent years with Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy two high-profile players to have made the switch.
However Sagna is also reportedly being chased by clubs in Europe such as Monaco, who hope to lure him with a reported £28m package.
Sagna has been in great form for Arsenal this season but his contract expires in the summer, with the north London hoping to persuade him to stay on with a reported two-year deal worth £60,000-a-week.
However with Monaco reportedly prepared to offer a whopping three-year, £120,000-a-week deal and Galatasaray also thought to be prepared to match that but with a four-year deal, it remains to be seen where the French international will end up.
PSG, Real Madrid and Fenerbache are all also thought to be interested in the player who some think may be considering a new challenge.
Sagna has had the same contract with the Gunners since 2008 and is said to be disappointed that his loyalty to the trophy-less club has not been better rewarded.
