French tax laws cools Arsenal fullback Sagna PSG plans

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is cooling plans of a move to PSG over France's tax laws.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is cooling plans of a move to PSG over France's tax laws.

The Daily Mail says plans to introduce a 75 per cent 'supertax' in France for the nation's top earners has put Sagna's PSG switch in serious jeopardy.

It was originally thought the upper income tax plan would not apply to football clubs, but that is now unclear.

Such a tax deduction would have a significant impact on Sagna's pay-deal should he leave for the French capital.

And Sagna could now stay at the Emirates Stadium next season, while the option of an Arsenal contract extension could also be revisited depending on how the defender plays.
