Manchester City right-back Bacary Sagna has disclosed that his days at the club could be numbered as discussions regarding a contract renewal have not yet taken place.
The Frenchman has approximately seven months left on his current deal and could be on his way out next summer.
“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.There has been no negotiations as of yet, so I do not know what will happen", he told beIN SPORTS.
Bacary joined the Sky Blues in June 2014 from rivals Arsenal. It would be a significant loss for Pep Guardiola’s side as Sagna has performed well in the still young 16/17 season. City would receive no payment for the 33-year-old either, making it an even bigger disappointment.
A rumored destination for the possible on-the-move defender is Ligue 1 side Marseille; however, the French club’s chances of landing his signature have taken a substantial blow as the player revealed to beIN SPORTS that he is not sure it would be the right decision for his career.
“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.”
The stalling of contract talks could signal a plan to bring one if not multiple talented full-backs to the Etihad in the near future. It would install a great amount of youth and stability to City’s shaky defensive line, but it would also mean the loss of an important part of City's recent success.
