Sagna leaves door open over Arsenal future

 Sagna leaves door open over Arsenal future

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna refused to rule out the possibility of leaving the club, in the wake of interest from French moneybags Monaco and PSG.

The 30-year-old France international, who has joined the Gunners from Auxerre back in 2007, is entering his final year of contract at Emirates stadium. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is well-known for his policy of offering not more than one-year contract to the players over 30 and he is not going to change the rules with Sagna. The player, however, considers he deserved long-term contract as a reward for his loyalty to the club.
Sagna entered the preliminary negotiations with Arsenal over the new contract, but prepared to consider the incoming offers from Monaco and PSG, should the talks reach a stalemate.

He said: “I am under contract until 2014. Yes, there are talks [to extend] but they have not prolonged too far. I am in talks. I am not at a bad club.”

Asked if he thinks a return to France is possible, Sagna replied: “It is possible. I would have to see in what conditions and what would be proposed on a sporting level. I would not leave for anything. I don’t reject anything. If I am staying at Arsenal, I will try to achieve a good season, there is a World Cup at the end of it. If I should have to leave, it will be a new challenge.”
