Bacary Sagna offered €150,000-a-month pay rise to leave Arsenal

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has received a lucrative contract offer from Turkish giants Fenerbahce that would see him pick up an extra €150,000-a-month to walk away from the Emirates and move to Istanbul next season, according to L'Equipe.

Sagna's contract with Arsenal expires at the end of this season and so far Gunners chiefs have failed to persuade the French international his long-term future still lies in North London, with contract negotiations that have rumbled on for nearly six months at deadlock.

Premier League rivals Manchester United, Liverpool and Man City have all been linked with a summer swoop for the 31-year-old on a free transfer, but Turkish giants Fenerbache believe they have the financial clout to match those teams for Sagna's signature.

L'Equipe have this morning reported that the Turkish champions are in advanced talks with Sagna's representatives and have lodged a lucrative offer for the veteran defender to consider, a long-term deal that includes a bumper pay rise.

For now Sagna is focused on the fight to help Arsenal earn Champions League qualification and lift the FA Cup at the end of the season, but it looks increasingly likely that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will lose his most experienced outfield player in June.

Wenger has not given up hope completely of keeping a key member of his squad, but insisted in his latest press conference yesterday that the ball is firmly in Sagna's court with regard to deciding where he wants to play next season.
