The French left-back looks set to leave Arsenal and a number of clubs had been showing an interest, namely Liverpool and Inter Milan. Liverpool were understood to be leading the chase, but now City look set to land his signature after making their move last week.
It is now believed City are close to agreeing a £7million deal for the 25-year-old, who has made over 250 appearances for Arsenal. The France international is now due in the North West ahead of a medical with City as a move to Eastlands looks increasingly likely.
It’s about time that this Clichy saga comes to an end, its worked out well getting £7m for a player that is prone to making dreadful mistakes and has only scored 2 goals in over 8 years at Arsenal. Although he has had some very decent patches of form, he has also been quite injury prone, especially with his back this year. So lets hope Wenger buys a suitable replacement!
