Arsenal tried to sign me – Yanga-Mbiwa

Arsenal transfer target, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has revealed that Arsenal tried to sign him over the summer. The Montpellier defender wanted to move to AC Milan instead, but the move never materialised.

The France international told L’Equipe:

“Arsenal tried to sign me, but I had my attention elsewhere,”

“Milan wanted me, but even though my president was ready to sell me, the deal didn’t go through in the end.”

“I was really disappointed about not joining Milan, but our president is the owner of the club and he must be respected.

“Milan made an offer but it was rejected. It was then I understood that it would be difficult for me to leave Montpellier.”


Sagna blow for Arsenal – hints at leaving the club.

Arsenal defender, Bacary Sagna has revealed his frustration over the number of players leaving the club and also hinted at possibly leaving the club himself.

The France international who is currently injured told L’Equipe:

“Everyone was expecting Robin Van Persie to leave, but Alex Song, that was a surprise. I don’t understand that at all. It is a big loss for the club.

“When you see two of the best players from last season leave, you ask a lot of questions. I understand why the supporters are nervous.

“I am the only starting player left from 2007. In May, I watched City’s parade on TV. I saw Samir and Gael lift the trophy. I want that [feeling].

“Could I be tempted to leave? For the moment, I want to play with Arsenal, and find my level again.”

The player revealed he will have 1 year remaining on his contract after current season and no one from the club has contacted him regarding his contract situation.
