Defender will follow in the footsteps of former team-mates Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy by swapping the Emirates for Eastlands. 

Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna is all set to join Premier League champions Manchester City on a free transfer this summer, with the deal likely to be concluded as early as this week, according to exclusive reports in the Daily Mail.

The experienced France international’s current contract with the north London club runs out at the end of June and despite he and his advisers having been locked together in face-to-face negotiations with the Gunners hierarchy for over a year now, it seems like Sagna is on the verge of ending his seven-year stay at the Emirates.

Arsenal have gone against their own club-wide policy by offering the 31-year-old a three-year deal, while the club have also raised their financial incentive to £80,000 per week in order to try to persuade the player to finish his career in the capital.

However, that all seems to no avail now with Sagna in Manchester on Monday to finalise the details on the three-year contract worth a staggering £150,ooo per week that City have handed the full back.
