The Frenchman thinks Sagna will extend his stay with the Gunners.
One of the big talking points at Arsenal in recent times has been the future of Bacary Sagna and whether the right-back will sign for Manchester City of not.
Sagna’s current contract with the Gunners expires in the summer and the likes of Galatasaray and Inter Milan have also shown interest in the 31-year-old.
However, the north Londoners have submitted an offer of an extension to the France international and manager Arsene Wenger is confident an agreement will be found.
“He has an offer, he has not come back to us yet,” the 64-year-old was quoted by Goal.
“I’m confident he will stay, yes but we’ll accept his decision, no matter what his decision will be we will accept it and go on with it.”
When asked about his thoughts on City offering Sagna a contract to become the latest from the Emirates Stadium to head to the Citizens, Wenger had a simple response.
“That cannot be right because it is illegal,” the Frenchman said.
This is because when players reach the final six months of their current deal they are allowed to discuss terms with other clubs, but only if they are based in another country.
Sagna arrived in north London in 2007 from Auxerre and is now one of the longest serving players at the club and has enjoyed a good season in 2013/14.
Keeping hold of the defender would be a great coup for the team, especially with Santi Cazorla, Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky having recently signed new deals.
