Sagna: I didn't move to Man City for the money

Bacary Sagna insists money was not his motivation despite giving up a regular start at Arsenal to fight for a place at Manchester City.

Sagna said: "I think it's the right move for me. I needed a change in my life. I needed to challenge myself and I know I will have to fight and train really hard to get into the team.

"I knew I had to come, no matter what happened. I had already made my mind up, at the beginning of the season.

"It's not about the money. Can you find one player in Europe who stayed six years on the same contract? That's what I did and I never asked for anything."
