Arsenal On Alert As Man City Ask Wayne Bridge To Leave

Reports have emerged that Wayne Bridge could be on his way to Arsenal after Roberto Mancini told him it is time to leave Manchester City.

The £90,000-a-week full-back is unwanted at the Etihad and the Gunners are favourites to pounce.

Boss Mancini said: “It should be important for a player to play football. I don’t know why someone would want to stay when they know they cannot get in a team.

“I hope he will go. It’s difficult for a player to stay here every day then, on a Saturday, nothing. When we are here he trains with us and, sometimes, he trains with the young players.”

Former England left-back Bridge, 31, has not started a Premier League game for City since October 2010.

Asked how Bridge spends his Saturdays now, Mancini said: “Golf?”

Bridge turned down SPL giants Celtic this summer and several Championship clubs have asked to take him on loan.
