Sagnol: Set to leave Bayern
Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol has been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Since suffering a serious knee injury in April the Frenchman has had few opportunities to shine for Bayern.
Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness revealed earlier this month that Sagnol had become frustrated with coach Ottmar Hitzfeld and wanted to leave.
According to France Football, Sagnol could now be on his way to England after attracting the interest of several clubs.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly a big admirer of Sagnol and may be considering a new right-back with Gary Neville experiencing injury problems and Wes Brown having turned down a new contract.
Chelsea are also understood to be keen, while Italian giants Milan have been connected with him as well.
