Bacary Sagna will wait until after the Wold Cup to resolve his future, according to reports in The Mirror.

The Frenchman's current deal runs out at the end of this season and, although he's been offered an extension, he's yet to sign.

However, the Gunners have been given hope of holding on to their first-choice right back with the news that he is committed to international future for now, not finding a new club.

Having joined the North London club from Auxerre in 2007, Sagna has played more games for Arsenal than anyone else currently at the club.

At just 31, and with seven years Premier League experience under his belt, the defender is an attractive signing for a number of clubs, and both Chelsea and Manchester City have been credited with an interest.

It's not just in England were Sagna would be popular should he decide to leave Arsenal. Earlier this season, Monaco, Inter Milan and Galatasaray were all linked with a summer move by The Mirror.

However, any move could be scuppered by Sagna's wage demands, in March, The Mirror reported that he was holding out for £100,000-a-week for three years, as well as a significant signing on fee.

While that may not deter Monaco, other clubs may be wary of offering such a lucrative deal to a man who broke his leg twice in 2012.

Sagna will be hoping this summer's even in Brazil will be a vast improvement on his previous World Cup experience when he played every minute of France's disastrous 2010 campaign.
