Arsenal set to lose Bacary Sagna

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are having to come to terms with the fact that they may lose full-back star Bacary Sagna for nothing at the end of this season, according to the Daily Mail.

Sagna's contract expires at the end of the current campaign and, despite the fact that the club want to open talks concerning a new deal, it's looking increasingly likely that a departure from the Emirates is on the cards.

Reports are suggesting that the 30-year-old right back has accepted that this will be his final season as a Gunner, and is prepared to move abroad in order to be given a lucrative contract on which to end his professional playing career.

Sagna is currently on a deal thought to bring him around £60,000-a-week, but felt insulted by the club's offer last season of a 12-month extension on the same money, after having rejected the advances of clubs such as Real Madrid and Manchester City in recent years.

They eventually managed to convince him to pen the proposed deal- which runs to the end of the current season- but now the club fear that the Frenchman, who has been a consistently key figure for Arsene Wenger, may leave on a free transfer when this term culminates.

It is thought the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Galatasaray have already expressed a strong interest and Arsenal may have to fight to retain their man.
