It’s not often the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have had any good news in regards to Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean recently admitted his desire to play in the Champions League and, with just a year left on his deal, has been strongly linked with moves to the likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester City pretty much all summer.
So, while the former Barcelona man’s future is still well up in the air, the Gunners have at least been handed a boost by Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Speaking before the Bundesliga giants’ tour of China, and with quotes sourced by the Daily Mail, he ruled out a move for the 28-year-old.
‘I don’t know what [Sanchez] has said but we are no longer involved.’
‘We are in agreement with the coach [Carlo Ancelotti] and we won’t be doing another deal for an attacker. That makes no sense”, he said.
Having already brought the likes of James Rodriguez and Serge Gnabry to Bavaria this summer, it seems Carlo Ancelotti’s team will not be in the market for another attacker at all, meaning there’s one less potential suitor after Arsenal’s star man.
While that doesn’t mean he’ll stick around in north London, it’s at least something slightly positive for the resident Gooners, who’re dreaming about seeing him link up with Alexandre Lacazette next term.
They can only dream…
