Arsenal were often criticized for offering their star and key players contracts very late but with Arsene Wenger’s improvements in the transfer market it seems that they have taken care of that issue as well which allowed many key players leave the club.
Arsenal have broken their wage structure to seal the long-term future of right-back Bacary Sagna, according to Le 10 Sport.
The 30-year-old is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium this summer and has been attracting interest from Monaco, PSG and Manchester City.
All three of the aforementioned clubs were ready to exploit their loaded pockets in order to offer Sagna big money to leave north London, but Arsene Wenger has responded.
Abandoning his policy of offering over-30s one-year deals, Wenger has given Sagna a three-year contract that will take him up until the summer of 2017.
The French newspaper also report that Sagna will earn roughly £80,000-a-week with the Gunners.
It’s a big boost for Wenger, who has been trying to tie down both Sagna and Per Mertesacker to long-term deals.
