Sagna has rejected Inter Milan and now looks set to join Man City.
Manchester City are sensationally set to sign Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna after the Frenchman rejects a switch to Inter Milan, according to the Daily Star.
The Serie A team offered Sagna a two-year deal (with the option of the third) worth a total of £9m, but the 31-year-old has rejected that deal in favour of staying in the Premier League.
The defender’s current deal at the Emirates Stadium expires in the summer and there have been ongoing negotiations between the player and the club all year over a new one.
The north Londoners are only prepared to offer Sagna a two-year extension with the same wages of £60,000-a-week, whilst the full-back wants three years and nearer to £90,000.
It means that after seven years the France international looks set to leave Arsene Wenger’s side and AS Monaco, Barcelona, Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Real Madrid are all thought to be monitoring the situation.
Yet it was Inter that actually made the move and put in an offer for Sagna, but their lack of Champions League football for next season has deterred the defensive ace.
Walter Mazzarri’s men are currently fifth in the Italian top tier and 11 points off third-placed Napoli – a gap they are unlikely to make up.
City meanwhile are almost guaranteed to be playing top European football next term and having spent a large part of his career already in England, Sagna is open to remaining in his adopted country.
