Speaking to reporters at Milan airport the Inter president said the following,
“I think (Bacary) Sagna won’t arrive because he has decided to stay in the Premier League,”
He also reminded reporters that the Inter squad was not exactly short of fullbacks,
“Right now we only have (Yuto) Nagatomo and Jonathan. If one of them gets injured you need somebody else to come in.
“But we have to accept the fact he (Sagna) wants to stay in England.”
Obviously this is no confirmation that Sagna is staying at Arsenal but it gives us a clearer idea of what he might be thinking, I think I speak for all Arsenal fans when I saw I hope he doesn’t do a Nasri/Clichy and make his way up to middle eastlands.
Sagna is still a very good defender and would be considered one of the best right backs in the league so it would be a big blow to lose him in the summer, that said, if he is after unrealistic wages on his final ‘big’ contract I sense Arsene may well show him the door.
