Bacary Sagna close to Man City switch
Bacary Sagna is set to join Manchester City this summer, his agent has told Areanapoli.it.
The France international right-back confirmed last week that he will leave Arsenal after seven years at the Emirates Stadium and will depart on a free transfer because he will be out of contract.
Inter Milan admitted they were interested in Sagna while Galatasaray were linked with him and Laurent Gutsmuth, his representative, revealed there has been interest from Napoli but said the versatile defender is headed for the Premier League champions.
"It's true that we were contacted, but for information only. We never spoke about figures", the agent told Areanapoli.it. "He should be signing for Manchester City."
The 31-year-old, who made 284 appearances for Arsenal, is expected to sign a three-year deal at City.
City are also likely to sign Porto midfielder Fernando, though no deal is likely to be concluded this week.
Sagna's arrival would pave the way for City's longest-serving player Micah Richards to leave the club after only making two league appearances this season.
