Bacary Sagna updates on his contract situation with Arsenal and Manchester City
The Frenchman’s future has been under intense speculation with his contract expiring and he seems almost certain to join Manchester City, who reportedly opened talks with the France international.
Sagna was in tears when Arsenal claimed their first trophy in nine years at Wembley recently and he now admits there is still a chance he will stay in north London.
Sagna: “My situation will be sorted out before the World Cup, but I haven’t signed for anyone so far. I have agreed with no one.
“I don’t have any agreement with Manchester City or with anyone else. I have never set foot there. Several European and English clubs have contacted me.
“Certain talks have gone further than others, and Manchester City are among them. But today, I’m still an Arsenal player.
“Today, there’s a 90 percent chance I will leave and 10 percent that I will stay.
“I have been asking myself that question for a long time, and it’s the time for a new challenge.
“Arsenal is an extraordinary club that has given me the chance to grow, both in sporting and human terms. It’s a family club, I feel good here.
“I’ve had some very good years here. We all have our own destiny and I will try to find mine. Whatever happens, Arsenal will stay forever in my heart.”
Bacary Sagna won 62% of his duels in the Premier League this season, the most of any outfield Arsenal player.
