Earlier this week Inter Milan had hinted they were close to a deal which would see Bacary Sagna move to the Italian giants.
The Frenchman is a free agent this summer but according to the Inter president, Erick Thohir, he’s going to stay in England.
“Sagna has decided to stay in the Premier League,” Thohir said, via ESPN. “But we still need a new full-back.”
Whether this means he’ll be signing an extension with Arsenal, or taking advantage of his Bosman status to move to another club remains to be seen.
Rumours have linked him with Manchester City this week, but with Pablo Zabaleta well and truly established as their first choice right-back, it would seem an odd choice for a man heading into the years of his career when he really wants to play week in, week out.
Liverpool has also been suggested as a potential destination, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here. Maybe there’s some good news for us?
