Manchester City are yet to make formal contact with Arsenal fullback Bacary Sagna.

Off contract in June, Sagna has discussed Bosman terms with Galatasaray and Inter Milan over the past week.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to tempt Sagna to the Northwest, but Premier League clubs are blocked from discussing pre-contracts with players within England.

Sagna, however, is eager to remain in the country, which was confirmed by Inter president Erick Thohir yesterday.
