Wenger hoping that Bayern and PSG follow up Sanchez interest

  Wenger hoping that Bayern and PSG follow up Sanchez interest Arsene Wenger is hoping that both Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain follow up their interest in Alexis Sanchez this summer. The Express reports that the Gunners boss is unwilling to sell the player to Manchester City, who had been linked with an audacious move for the Chilean. Wenger has refused to sell the player directly to a Premier League rival and is banking on the two aforementioned clubs making a bid for the player. Paris Saint-Germain would be able to match the player’s huge wage demands, which have reported to be somewhere in the region of £400,000 per week. The former Barcelona man is seen as a realistic target for Bayern Munich in terms of a transfer fee, but the Bavarian side would not be willing to meet his demands. Sanchez only has one year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates and could walk away from nothing next summer if he does not agree on fresh terms.

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed they have dropped their interest in signing Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez for next season.

After head coach Carlo Ancelotti last week had his wish granted to sign Colombia's James Rodriguez on loan from Real Madrid, Bayern have called off their bid to poach Chile's hot-shot Sanchez from Arsenal.

"We are no longer involved. We have agreed with our coach that we won't add [new players] in attack. It wouldn't make any sense," Rummenigge told German magazine Kicker.

Bayern had reportedly been vying with Manchester City to sign Sanchez, 28, Chile's all-time top scorer, who has a year left on his Arsenal contract, but is stalling over extension negotiations with the Gunners.

Sanchez, who at times last season cut a disgruntled figure as Arsenal struggled with form, is not on the team's pre-season tour to Australia and China as he rests after last month's Confederation's Cup when Chile lost to Germany in the final.

Bayern will start their pre-season tour of China and Singapore on Wednesday when they play Arsenal in Shanghai.
