Bacary Sagna has confirmed that he is likely to leave Arsenal this summer after failing to agree a contract extension with the club.

The France international has long been linked with an exit from the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season but only now has he confirmed that speculation.

The Gunners have been trying hard to agree a deal with Sagna, but with the player demanding a three-year deal worth £100,000-a-week, they have opted to let him run his contract down.

Sagna says that he has been unable to agree terms with Arsenal and that he can't see himself playing in north London next season.

"I'm out of contract, as everyone knows," Sagna is quoted as saying to

"I still consider myself as an Arsenal player at present."But actually we had a small problem to agree (a new deal), and I don't think I stay at Arsenal at the end of the season."

Now attention from Arsenal will turn to the 31-year-old's next destination. It looked likely that he would return to his homeland with both PSG and Monaco ready to meet his demands.

However, the concern for Arsenal fans is that Manchester City and Chelsea have both registered their interest in signing him.

Manchester City now looks to most likely destination, meaning Arsenal will have to face up to their former hero next season.

Arsene Wenger has, too, recently confirmed that Arsenal and Sagna are not close to agreeing a new deal.
