The experienced France international’s current deal at the Emirates now runs out at the end of June, meaning that Sagna will be available to any interested parties on a lucrative Bosman-style free transfer.

And it had been widely expected that the 31-year-old would now be joining Premier League champions Manchester City next season after the north-west outfit offered Sagna a bumper three-year contract worth a staggering £150,000 per week.

However, now Sagna has revealed that he is still to actually make up his mind as to where exactly he will be playing his football next season, giving Gunners fans a ray of hope that the player could even now opt to remain in north London after all this summer.

“My situation will be sorted out before the World Cup, but I haven’t signed for anyone so far. I have agreed with no one,” said Sagna.

“I don’t have any agreement with Manchester City or with anyone else. I have never set foot there. Several European and English clubs have contacted me.

“Certain talks have gone further than others, and Manchester City are among them. But today, I’m still an Arsenal player.

“Today, there’s a 90 percent chance I will leave and 10 percent that I will stay.

“I have been asking myself that question for a long time, and it’s the time for a new challenge.

“Arsenal is an extraordinary club that has given me the chance to grow, both in sporting and human terms. It’s a family club, I feel good here.

“I’ve had some very good years here. We all have our own destiny and I will try to find mine. Whatever happens, Arsenal will stay forever in my heart.”
