Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has agreed to a three-year deal with Manchester City thus ending his seven years of stay at the Emirates, reports French newspaper L’Equipe.

The French defender will be out-of-contract by June 30, after he rejected a two-year extension that boss Arsene Wenger had offered to him.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal’s unwillingless to improve Sagna’s £80,000-a-week contract was one of the main reasons behind the 31-year-old’s departure from the North London club. City, on the other hand, are said to have given Sagna a three-year deal which will allow him to earn £150,000-a-week, almost double of what he was earning at Arsenal.

He had joined Arsenal from Aurexxe back in 2007, and was selected for the PFA Premier League Team of the Year on two occassions, 2007-08 and 2010-11.

Toulouse’s Serge Aurier, aged 21, is heavily tipped to replace Sagna at the club.
