Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna looks as if he could be set to join Premier League rivals Manchester City, reports suggests.
The same report further claims that French international Sagna - who currently earns £60,000-per-week at Arsenal on a contract that is due to expire at the end of the season - has been offered a £90,000-per-week, two-year deal to switch to the San Siro with the possibility of a third year but is leaning towards remaining in the Premier League.
31-year-old right-back Sagna joined Arsenal from Ligue 2 outfit Auxerre back in 2007 and has become a reliable stalwart of Arsene Wenger's backline ever since.
Having made well over 200 appearances for the Gunners, it was generally assumed by many fans that he would sign an extension to his expiring deal at the Emirates Stadium.
However, despite the club offering him a further two-year stay on the same wages, he is yet to sign on the dotted line.
Manchester City currently boast one of the best and most consistent right-back in the Premier League in the form of experienced Argentine Pablo Zabaleta.
Quite whether Sagna - if he were to move to the Etihad Stadium, of course - would replace Zabaleta remains to be seen but it seems more than likely that he would move ahead of Micah Richards in the pecking order given the lack of success enjoyed by the former England international in recent seasons.
