Manchester City have reached an agreement to sign right-back Bacary Sagna from Arsenal.

 

The right back has signed a three year deal with the Premier League champions worth £150,000-per-week. Sagna will join Manchester City when his deal expires on June 30.

A statement on the City website said: “Manchester City are delighted to announce that Bacary Sagna will join the club for next season. The 31-year-old full-back will complete his transfer from Arsenal on a three-year contract following the World Cup in Brazil, where he is currently on duty with the French squad.

“Sagna is a hugely experienced defender, having represented Arsenal 213 times since joining them from Auxerre in 2007. During that time he has picked up 41 caps for the French national side.

“He will take up the vacant squad No3, the same number he wore for the Gunners.”

Sagna made 284 appearances for the Gunners since joining them from Auxerre in 2007. Sagna, who is being given the squad number three, is expected to join City’s squad in time to join them on a pre-season tour to the United States.

Sagna posted an emotional farewell message on twitter and Instagram account.

 

Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping to sign Eliaquim Mangala in the coming days and a deal for Fernando looks set to be completed for £16million.
