Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna will hold talks with Manchester City after this month's FA Cup final against Hull City.
The Gunners have offered Sagna a three-year deal worth £80,000-a-week, but the 31-year-old wants at least £100,000-a-week - according to the Daily Mail - and is happy to leave the Emirates Stadium if his demands are not met.
Sagna becomes a free agent in the summer, after spending seven years with the north London outfit, and Manchester City could secure the France international's services for the next couple of seasons if they manage to strike a deal later this month. The defender's advisors have already held talks with Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray and Inter Milan, but discussions between clubs in the same country are forbidden until the end of the season due to transfer regulations.
Manchester City already have a top-class right-back in the form of Argentina international Pablo Zabaleta, so it remains to be seen how Manuel Pellegrini plans to use Sagna next season.
The Frenchman may still agree a move to the Etihad Stadium, despite the lack of first-team assurances, if he can secure a £100,000-a-week deal.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger recently admitted that talks between Sagna and the Gunners are not progressing - and it seems increasingly likely that he will play his final game for the club over the course of the next few weeks.
