Arsenal confident of keeping disgruntled Sagna
Arsenal believe Bacary Sagna will remain at the club despite voicing his concern at the departures of Robin van Persie and Alex Song, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Sagna is recovering from a broken leg but has had to watch as the likes of Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Cesc Fabregas - as well as van Persie and Song - have left the Emirates Stadium in the space of little more than a year.
While Sagna admits the sale of van Persie was always expected, he believes letting Song join Barcelona was a mistake - and added that after watching Clichy and Nasri celebrate winning the Premier League title with Manchester City that he felt they did the right thing in leaving.
The France international’s contract expires in 2014 and with Arsenal yet to open discussions over an extension, Sagna could well be in the same position next summer as van Persie was in the summer just gone - with one year remaining on his deal and questions marks hanging over his future. The Telegraph however says Arsenal will begin talks in the near future.
