Bacary Sagna: Leaving Arsenal

Bacary Sagna: Leaving Arsenal

The 31-year-old revealed earlier in the week he was 90 percent certain to be leaving, but he has now confirmed in writing to Arsenal that he has turned down their offer of a contract extension.

Sagna's current deal is due to expire at the end of June, after which point he will be free to sign for another club.

Arsenal had offer Sagna a two-year extension, but the French international has opted to end his Gunners career after seven-years at the Emirates.

It is understood that Manchester City, Manchester United and a number of top clubs in Europe have expressed an interest in talking, with Sagna ideally wanting his future resolved before the World Cup finals kick-off next month.

Give Jenkinson a chance, and then have to fork out for a Sagna replacement?, mmm. It doesn't sound sensible for AFC to let Bac go for no good reason, the guy has given everything, right up to the last minute, even tho he realised he was being cheaped out of the Club. Keep Sagna, and pension AW off, he gets contract after contract...... no 1 year extensions for him.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
