Former Manchester City and Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna has been biding his time for the right option to continue his career after, following his release from Manchester City last summer.
A number of prolific sides, including Leicester City, were linked with the 34-year-old French international, but no moves materialised and some had even began to wonder if he had retired.
The answer to that is no, with Serie A’s basement boys Benevento today announcing that they have acquired Sagna on a contract until June 30, with an option to extend it until 2019.

After 22 matches, Benevento are nine points behind second-from-bottom Hellas Verona in Serie A, so even with the experience of Sagna, it will take a minor miracle for them to avoid dropping down to Italy’s second tier.
Sagna made 86 appearances in his three seasons with Manchester City, winning the League Cup during his time at the club.
