Manchester City announced Friday that Sagna will officially join the team in July on a three-year contract.

Sagna moves on a free transfer from Arsenal after the Gunners refused to offer what Man City was willing to give up. It'll be interesting to see where Sagna lines up, as City also extended Aleksander Kolarov's contract this week.

Sagna, who is out of contract with Arsenal, is expected to sign with Manchester City, The Guardian reports. The new deal is believed to be worth 120,000 per week for three years.

Sagna is expected to continue at right-back, although he can play centre-back as well. It's certainly a loss for Arsenal, who were believed to be interested in bringing him back at a reduced rate than what we got from the Citizens.

Sagna is rated as "50-50" for Sunday's match against West Brom due to a knee injury, the Daily Mirrorreports.

It would be a tough blow for fantasy owners, as the home matchup against West Brom is a great one for the defender. Sagna is set to leave the Emirates this summer on a free transfer, so his days with the Gunners are numbered.

Fenerbahce are reportedly ready to offer Sagna 100,000 per week to join their side, reports the Daily Mail.

Sagna and Arsenal have been unable to come to agreement on a new deal, and it looks as though the defender is about to reject Arsenal's latest offer. The current offer is reportedly Arsenal's final.

Manchester City may be ready to offer Sagna a three-year contract after the defender rejected two offers from Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.

Sagna is out of contract with Arsenal this summer and is free to talk to other clubs, but cannot hold discussions with Premier League teams until the season ends. It doesn't look like Sagna wants to remain with Arsenal and the defender has already hinted he wishes to stay in London, though Manchester City could be very tempting.
