Sagna rubbishes Real rumours

Published Add your comment

Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has distanced himself from reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid - and declared he is "100% committed" to the Gunners.

The defender was quoted in the French press as "not against the idea" of a switch to the Bernabeu as part of new president Florentino Perez's revolution.

"These comments are not accurate and I am not aware of any speculation linking me to another club. I am 100% committed to Arsenal. This is a great club and I am proud to wear the shirt," Sagna said in a statement.

"I have seen the quotes attributed to me in the French media and I just want to put the record straight.

"I am looking forward to returning for pre-season training in July and preparing for the challenges that next season will bring.

"We have a great squad of players at the club and I know that we can achieve something together at Arsenal, my focus is nowhere else."
