Alexis agrees to Bayern deal according to reports
Alexis Sanchez has agreed to sign for Bayern this summer, according to Italian journalist Matteo Pedrosi.
Alexis has been linked with a host of clubs around Europe including PSG and Chelsea but it now seems that Bayern are in pole position.
The Chilean is said to be happy to join the German giants and now it is a case of Bayern agreening the fee with Arsenal.
It would be the worst way for Arsenal to get a good deal though. Ideally a few clubs would get into a bidding war to maximise the return on the star man.
Alexis has been far and away Arsenal’s best player this season but is refusing to sign an extension to the deal that expires in a year’s time.
There have been reports that Alexis will be kept regardless of signing a new deal but the way Arsenal have done business in the past – with the likes of Robin van Persie when he was in a similar situation – it would be hard to see Arsenal just giving up the sizeable transfer fee that would come in.
