Twist in Sanga saga despite talks over lucrative contract with Turkish champions

Bacary Sagna is planning one last set of negotiations with Arsenal over a new contract.

The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and will be able to leave Arsenal on a free transfer.

Some of Europe's top clubs have been monitoring the right back's situation and this week the Frenchman's representatives met with Galatasaray regarding a lucrative summer move to Turkey.

The Daily Mail reports talks where held while the Turkish champions were in London this week for their Champions League fixture with Chelsea.

Sagna, who joined Arsenal in 2007 from French side Auxerre, was believed to have played his last game for Arsene Wenger's side last season but remained in north London this season to see out his contract.

Wenger has been keen to tie his first choice right back to an extended deal, offering his compatriot a two year contract with an option for a third. However that offer has yet to be accepted by the player who has appeared for Arsenal 273 times, scoring five goals.

All is not lost though as Ivan Gazidis and Dick Law are planning a third round of talks with Sanga's representatives in order to finally convince them that the Frenchman should see out his career with the Gunners.
