Bacary Sagna has recently been linked with a move to Marseille, but the Manchester City star has revealed he isn’t keen on joining them.
Speaking to Bein Sports (via RMC Sport), Sagna was asked about a possible move to Marseille, with his contract at Manchester City expiring at the end of the season.
The French international insists he’d want to be at more stable club, unlike Marseille, and would like to avoid the pressure of helping a new project start at the age of 34.
He said: “I’m at the end of the contract this summer. I don’t have a question. It’s a club that I like very much, it’s a historical club of French football, but I don’t think I want to go back under so much pressure.
“I’m going to be 34. I’m looking for more stability. I want to be in a stable team right now.”
RMC Sport say it remains to be seen if Marseille can still convince him, as his profile would be very tempting for the Ligue 1 club.
It’s been reported Manchester City haven’t offered a contract renewal to Sagna yet, and in that case it’s increasingly likely he’ll have to find a new club at the end of the season.
Sagna has started 6 Premier League games so far this season, and come on as a substitute in one Champions League match.
