Manchester City, Arsenal

Britain’s Daily Star newspaper is reporting this morning that Manchester City are once again turning to Arsenal for Players with full-back Bacary Sagna being the latest target they want to lure to the Etihad.

The 30-year-old Frenchman has been one of the Gunners stand out players this season prompting Arsenal to offer him a new two year deal on his contract that is due to expire in the summer worth £60,000 per-week.

Other clubs besides Manchester City are also interested in Sagna with French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco believed to have drawn up a three year contract worth £120,000 per-week after tax with a signing on bonus of £10 million that will be spread over the length of the contract.

Monaco is not the only club on the continent interested in the French defender with PSG and Turkeys Fenerbahce are also said to be interested, but it is Manchester City who have already tried twice to sign the Arsenal player only to be turned down because he wanted to stay loyal to the Gunners.

Sagna has been a loyal Arsenal player since 2008 and is now thought to be upset at the way he has been treated while other players have left for more lucrative contracts elsewhere.

In another sign that he may be prepared to leave the Emirates, the team of negotiators that are in Germany this week trying to sign Schalke’s Julian Draxler will also meet with Eintracht Frankfurt in the hope of doing a deal for right-back Sebastian Jung.

The 23-year-old Jung who has just received a call up to the German national squad is seen as the ideal replacement for Sagna after having become an integral part of the Eintracht team and a fan favourite at the Commerzbank-Arena.
