In a move that has been widely expected for some time, Bacary Sagna has officially joined reigning champions Manchester City on a three year contract.
Manchester City already have a very good right back in Pablo Zabaleta but he is aging and today the Citizens added some competition/cover for the Argentinean in the form of former Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna. The French international comes to City on a free transfer and will ensure that City aren't left in the lurch if Zabaleta goes down. If you're thinking that this means that City are getting younger at the position, think again. Despite his hairline, Zabaleta is actually two years younger than Sagna. This doesn't necessarily make City's starting eleven better but it does make them deeper and probably means Micah Richards is not officially on the market. Jun 13 - 3:55 PM
