Imminent Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has told the club that he wants them to go head-to-head with rivals Man City for Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna, according to the Daily Mail.

It is thought that Sagna will have talks with Premier League champions City on Monday over a possible move this coming week, with a deal said to be worth £100,000 per week rumoured to be on the cards.

However, next United boss Louis van Gaal has now identified Sagna as one of his main transfer targets as he wants him to compete with Rafael for United's right back spot.

Stealing Sagna from under their rival's noses would be a wonderful way to announce himself to the fans at Old Trafford, but City remain favourites to land the Frenchman this summer and barring any last minute problems, Sagna's intention is to sign for City, though United's interest could possibly cause a rethink.

City’s current first choice right-back is Argentina’s Pablo Zabaleta, meaning Sagna may find it easier to break into United’s starting XI over City’s.

The defender has said he wants his future to be decided before the start of the World Cup in order to have a clear mind at the tournament.
