Bacary Sagna recommends Arsenal sign departing Manchester United player

Bacary Sagna recommends Arsenal sign departing Manchester United playerDAZN
He thinks one player would be the perfect foil for some younger players.

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna believes that Mikel Arteta should sign Raphael Varane this summer.

Varane left United at the end of his contract at Old Trafford, with his most recent season a difficult one given his injuries.

The 31-year-old Frenchman played just 22 league games last year, though his final appearance for the club was an outstanding performance as United became FA Cup winners against Manchester City.

Speaking to CoinPoker, Sagna suggested that his experience, after years with United and Real Madrid, would make him the perfect example for younger defenders Gabriel and William Saliba.

The former defender said: “He is a fantastic player with a lot left to offer because he is only thirty-one-years-old. 

“I actually think he would be a brilliant signing for Arsenal. Varane would be a perfect fit for the vibe of the club because of his winning mentality and personality. He would get on really well with the players in Arsenal’s squad because he is a great player and a great man. 

“I saw him a couple of days ago at the Champions League final and he was in great spirits. He is a football lover before anything, and he still has that desire and competitiveness to play at the top level for a few more seasons. As an addition to the Arsenal squad.

“I think he would be perfect. He would be perfect cover for either William Saliba or Gabriel and could step into the team when either of those players needed a rest or if they were to get injured. Arsenal need some more quality in reserve in central defence and Varane would be a wonderful addition.”
