Bacary Sagna will hold formal talks with Manchester City next week and looks increasingly likely to join the Barclays Premier League champions.

Sagna will play his final game for Arsenal in the FA Cup Final against Hull, but he will head straight into talks with City before joining up with his France team-mates ahead of the World Cup.

Sagna is set to sign a four-year deal worth £100,000-per-week at the Etihad Stadium.

The right-back wants his future sorted prior to Brazil 2014 because he wants to head into the tournament with a clear mind.

And now, barring a collapse in discussions next week, Sagna will become the latest Gunner to join City - following the lead of Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri in recent seasons.
