Bacary Sagna is ready to join Manchester City after contract talks between him and Arsenal broke down, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and, despite long talks with the Gunners, has failed to find an agreement.

Some reports suggested that Sagna was asking for a three-year deal worth £90,000-a-week while Arsenal were only willing to offer a two-year deal worth significantly less.

Arsene Wenger then decided to break his over-30 contract policy and reportedly offered Sagna a three-year deal, but, again, it was less than the requested £90,000-a-week.

After sticking by Arsenal through a tough period, Sagna was hopeful of getting his way, but has been left disappointed and hurt by Wenger's refusal to reward him for his loyalty.

Sagna has had to shortage of offers from other clubs with the likes of Galatasaray, Monaco and PSG all thought to have been in contact in recent weeks.

However, the 31-year-old is ready to stab Wenger in the back and opt to join Premier League rivals Manchester City instead.

Manuel Pellegrini is keen to add the versatile Sagna, who can play at right-back and centre-back, to his squad, seeing him as excellent cover for Pablo Zabaleta and Vincent Kompany.

As Sagna comes with now transfer fee, he will also help to cut spending at the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Sagna is ready to accept Manchester City's improved offer after ending talks with Arsenal, and will bring an end to an seven-year stay at the Emirates Stadium.
