Out of contract in June, and able to talk freely to other clubs since January 1st, Bacary Sagna’s contract issue is one that will be vexing many Arsenal fans.
The right back has come back into form after some struggles, much of which were down to him having his leg broken twice in one season, and Arseblog News is aware that he does want to stay at the club.
There’s a two year deal on offer but at the same salary as he’s currently on. Given his experience, consistency and reliability, he’s looking for an improved offer from the club before putting pen to paper.
It remains to be seen if the club are willing to negotiate further, but one would hope that the lessons of squad stability are being learned, and to keep one of the key components of the best defence we’ve had in years would a very good thing.
It has been suggested to us that a decision could be made inside the next two weeks, but it remains to be seen if that’s definitive.
Sign him up, Arsenal.
