Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has claimed that his team are no longer interested in landing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
The Bavarians were believed to be in a head-to-head fight with Manchester City for the Chilean during the summer, at a time when his future seemed certain to be away from the Emirates Stadium.
The striker stayed in North London but, with his deal due to end at the conclusion of the season, teams are believed to be lining up to tempt him into a Bosman transfer.
Bayern appears questionable to rival City for the 28-year-old’s services in the New Year, however, as Rummenigge expects him to transfer to elsewhere.
“I think Sanchez has already decided which club [to join], so I suppose that the door will be closed in January,” he told Sky Germany. “That’s not an issue, and he is no direct substitute for Robert Lewandowski as he is not a real centre-forward.”
Bayern have also been inclined to move for fellow Arsenal strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck in recent days.
