Bacary Sagna Focused on Returning Back to the Game
Many have been left wondering that former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna has been unable to secure a move to any club since leaving the latter on a free transfer. The 34-year-old defender left City at the end of the last season after his contract came to an end. He had been with Manchester City for the last few years, after joining Arsenal more than a decade ago. Since he has become one of the key Premier league defenders over the last decade, the 34-year-old was expected to secure a quick to move to another Premier league or French Ligue 1 club.
However, it has not happened and Sagna still remains as a free agent. No club has been able to sign him up due to several concerns like wages and fitness. The 34-year-old has dismissed rumours that he is set to announce his retirement. He claims that he is keeping himself fit and as competitive in order to be attractive to his next club. Sagna is confident that he will be able to figure a move to another club before the end of the January transfer window. At 34 years of age, he may not have a long time left in the game, but there is a significant possibility that he will be much more attractive given his experience and the lack of a transfer fee.
"I'm not thinking about it [not having a club]. I'm trying to stay fit. I think I'm quite fit. I always give the maximum to be as competitive as possible. Unfortunately I didn't find an option I would like, that's why I'm still here [in this position]. I'm looking forward, for December [ahead of January transfer window],” said Sagna when asked about his future and the inability to seal a next move.
