Arsene Wenger‘s Arsenal future is settled, but what about Alexis Sanchez?

The Chilean superstar has reportedly been offered a bumper new deal from the Gunners’ manager, but several outlets are pointing Sanchez to Germany.

First came the story that Chilean club Cobreloa was essentially making room for the near $1 million it would receive as a sell-on fee from Sanchez’s move to Bayern Munich.

Then Chilean teammate and Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal explained his pitch to Sanchez by taking a shot at the Emirates Stadium set.

From the London Evening Standard:

“I told him it’s his chance to be on a big team,” Vidal told reporters in Chile.

“If you want to compare with the big [players] you have to go to the best team in the world.”

Bayern is even money to land Sanchez on several betting lines, with staying at Arsenal just behind and Manchester City in the discussion.

Is there fire under this smoke?
