City want Bacary Sagna in the summer…

Manchester want another Arsenal ace this summer, with Frenchman Bacary Sagna emerging as a possible target, reports the Daily Star.
In modern memory, City have signed Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri from Arsenal, and now want the excellent 30-year-old right-back as well.
Sagna’s contract expires at the end of the season, and Arsenal have only offered him a two year extension on his current £60,000 per week deal. However, various European giants are apparently prepared to offer the defender nearly double this amount of money to persuade him to join on a Bosman deal in the summer.
Big spending Ligue 1 club Monaco are happy to offer him a three year deal at £120,000 per week, while Turkish giants Galatasaray are prepared to pay him this same amount but for four years.
Sagna has not decided on his future, but it’s thought that City could persuade him to join with a large contract offer and the chance to stay in the Premier League.
The Etihad side do already have the excellent Pablo Zabaleta at right-back, so the chance to play guaranteed first-team football elsewhere could tempt Sagna instead.
