Manchester City snap up Arsenal defender

Bacary Sagna (Arsenal)Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern aren’t too fond of Bacary Sagna anymore.

This comes as The Express reveals that the former Arsenal defender has completed his move to rivals Manchester City.

Sagna joins a growing list of players that have swapped the Emirates Stadium for the Etihad Stadium with Gael Clichy, Emmanuel Adebayor , Kolo Toure and Samir Nasri all doing it in the past, whilst Arsenal may need to start looking at why that is.

The Frenchman will wear he number three shirt for the Citizens, having penned a three-year deal worth a whopping £150,000 per week.

Arsenal paid €9 million for his signature in 2007 and he quickly became an ever present in Arsene Wengers’ side and scored his first goal against Chelsea that season, although the Gunners went on to lose 2-1 and Sagna went off injured.

But Sagna went on to play 213 times during his time at Arsenal over a period of five years scoring five goals in that time, being named in the PFA team of the year twice, and winning one trophy – the FA Cup success last month. 

Arsenal fans: Was Arsene Wenger right to let Sagna leave when he demanded £150,000 per week or should the Arsenal gaffer have done everything to keep hold of his man? Let us know your thoughts below.
