Tussles between Man City's Yaya Toure and Arsenal's Bacary Sagna appear to be a thing of the past as it is speculated by several sources Sagna has agreed a deal with Man City.
The Guardian state that he has agreed a £120,000 a week deal, whereas the Metro report the deal is a mammoth £150,000 a week, dwarfing the estimated £80,000 a week Arsenal wagered.
Both sources do however agree the deal on the table from Man City is for a duration of three years, a year longer than Arsenal were willing to offer.
During Sagna's 7 year association with the London club, he has been voted into the PFA Team of the Season on three separate occasions. Given his quality and consistency Arsenal are set to lose an important player, although in Carl Jenkinson they have a player ready to come out of the shadows and prove himself to be more than just Sagna's understudy.
As for Man City, Sagna will give Zabaleta some much needed competition after Micah Richards has been consigned to the transfer list. Other Man City targets are the Porto duo of Mangala and Fernando - both of whom were the subject of City's interest in January.
