City or United for Sagna?

Cape Town - According to the Daily Star website, France international right-back Bacary Sagna has been left disappointed and angry with the Gunners' failure to reward him with a new deal.

He is out of contract at the end of the season and - despite interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Galatasaray - wants to stay in the Premier League.

The North Londoners offered Sagna a two-year extension of his current contract, worth £75 000 - a rise of £15 000 on his current pay. But he wants three years at £100 000, plus a signing-on fee.

He has had big offers from abroad, including Inter Milan, who were willing to pay £90 000 a week for three years.

City look the favourites to land the 31-year-old as he will link up again with former Arsenal team-mates and fellow France internationals Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri.

With Micah Richards set to leave City this summer, and Zabaleta having arguably his worst season because of no real competition at right back, Sagna could be the man to bolster the City back four.

The big-spending Etihad club are ready to step in this summer with a package worth £20m over three years. However Manchester United, who are set to restructure their whole back four this summer, could look to steal Sagna’s signature from under their neighbours nose.

A source close to Sagna said: "He will leave the club 100 percent - there is no way he will stay.
