Bayern Munich admit interest in wantaway Premier League star
Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has refused to rule out a summer move for Alexis Sanchez – insisting he likes the player, per Sky.
Sanchez, 28, is widely expected to leave Arsenal this summer as his contract enters its final year. Discussions over an extension have been put on hold, with little evidence they will resume.
Manchester City and Bayern are the two reported frontrunners in the race to sign him, and Ancelotti has hinted he may be interested in the Chilean.

“There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis, he said.
“There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many direction. I believe that the market is currently somewhat crazy – and Bayern is not a crazy club.
“I know the culture of this club and will not ask for any players for whom the club has to spend crazy sums, but if there are opportunities, why not?”
