Bacary Sagna reportedly turned down French giants as he already has agreement in place

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has reportedly turned down an approach from Paris Saint-Germain as he will be moving to Manchester City.

Bacary Sagna has ignored interest from Paris Saint-Germain because he has already agreed to join Manchester City, claims French newspaper L’Equipe.

The Arsenal right-back is out of contract at the end of the month, and he has already admitted he will be moving on prior to the new campaign.

Last summer, Sagna was quoted as saying that he was flattered by interest from the French champions saying, “Of course it makes me proud that PSG are interested. They are a very attractive club.”

But not attractive enough if the latest report is to be believed, with L’Equipe claiming Sagna would not respond to PSG’s interest.

The report adds that the French side saw the Arsenal man as an attractive option because he is a free-agent and as such will not impact on their finances in light of Financial Fair Play.

But as has been strongly hinted in the English press - and by the player's agent - the report suggests a deal is done with Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

Sagna made 48 appearances for Arsenal last season, scoring one goal and providing seven assists in that time.

At 31, he will know he may have one last big deal in his career and appears to have opted to follow the path of a few Arsenal stars before him in heading to the Etihad Stadium.

As for PSG, their search for cheaper reinforcements continues…
