Rumour Rater: Bayern Munich interested in Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez - will he leave this summer?

Alexis Sanchez looks increasingly likely to leave Arsenal come this summer as a number of Europe’s top clubs look to secure the Chilean’s signature.

According to the Mirror, Bayern Munich are the latest team to show an interest in the winger. The newspaper reported that Bayern executives attended the FA Cup Semi-Final, where Sanchez scored the winner against Man City.

Despite Arsene Wenger’s insistent that his star man will be going nowhere, the 28-year-old’s future at the Gunners seems more and more in doubt. Sanchez has just twelve months remaining on his contract and looks no closer to signing a new one.

At 28, the winger is also at the peak of his career, and at a time where he should be winning trophies, he finds himself struggling in what seems like a stagnant Arsenal side that looks like it will miss out on Champions League football next year.

A player of Sanchez’s calibre should be playing Champions League football and, as the footballing giants of Europe circle, it is difficult to see him being an Arsenal player for much longer.

Of course, this will be a huge loss for the London club. The ex-Barcelona man is one of their few world-class talents, and perhaps their only one. He has an ability from a wide position to both score and create goals but is just as comfortable doing this from a central attacking position. Alongside this, Sanchez has a desire and determination that is almost unmatched in world football.

What an acquisition it would be for Bayern Munich, however. The Chilean has managed 19 goals and nine assists in 33 Premier League appearances this season, statistics which saw him deservedly get a nomination for PFA Player of the Year. It’s scary to think what he could do in a Bayern Munich side alongside the talent they have.
