Former Bayern Munich boss urges club to secure Alexis Sanchez Signing

Former Bayern Munich manager Ottmar Hitzfeld has urged his former club to make a move for Alexis Sanchez before their European rivals pounce for the Arsenal forward.


The Chile international grabbed 30 goals and 15 assists for the Gunners last term as they celebrated FA Cup success. Despite this, he is reluctant to prolong his stay beyond next season with the club failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years. Manchester City and Chelsea are the other suitors for Sanchez this summer, and it is suggested that the 28-year-old could push for a reunion with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad.
