Wenger: We won the stamina league

Bacary Sagna has admitted he is unlikely to stay at Arsenal next season as he gets set to play what could be his final game for the club against Norwich.

Having been at Arsenal since 2006, Sagna's deal expires in the summer with the right-back expected to enter into talks with Manchester City after the FA Cup final next weekend.

"I'm out of contract, as everyone knows. I still consider myself as an Arsenal player at present," Sagna told Europe1.

"But actually we had a small problem to agree with the club, and I don't think I'll stay at Arsenal at the end of the season."

It is believed that Sagna's advisers have already spoken to Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray and Inter Milan about a potential move.

However regulations forbid players discussing transfers with clubs in the same country during the season.

City are set to offer Sagna a three-year deal worth around £80,000 per week, though he is reportedly demanding £100,000 per week.

Following last weekend's final home game against West Brom, Arsene Wenger expressed his desire for Sagna to commit his future to Arsenal.

He said: "I want him to stay. There are two players at the end of their contracts, Sagna and [Lukasz] Fabianski. If it's down to me, they both stay."
