Bacary Sagna admits his Manchester City future is uncertain

Manchester City right-back Bacary Sagna has admitted his future after this season is unclear.

The 33-year-old, a consistent performer for City over the past couple of years, is out of contract next summer and speaking to beIN Sports, confirmed that no new offer has been presented yet.

Sagna said, “My contract expires at the end of the season. I am not thinking about it, though. I just take things as they come and try to give my all.”

On contract talks, the Frenchman added, “There have been no negotiations as of yet, so I do not know what will happen.”

Sagna has been linked with a move back to France with Marseille, but played down speculation, saying, “Marseille are a club that I like a lot, a club that is part of the history of French football. But I do not know whether I want to be under so much pressure at the age of 34. I need some calm around me and I am not sure Marseille are a stable club right now.”

City have been linked with a host of full-backs for the left and right sides, with Pep Guardiola expected to overhaul the positions next summer after sticking with the proven group of over-30s (Kolarov, Clichy, Sagna, Zabaleta) for the current campaign.

Of the four, Sagna is argubaly the most reliable performer in his natural position, but even he is not guaranteed an extension as Guardiola looks to truly rebuild the Manchester City squad in his own image for the 2017-18 season.
