They are teammates in Chile’s national team, they have won back-to-back Copa America titles, they could add a Confederations Cup medal to their collection, but that’s not enough for Arturo Vidal.
The Bayern Munich midfielder has been talking about Alexis Sanchez joining the Bavarian side for weeks now, and even though the Germans don’t look willing to pay the ‘crazy’, as they have called it, money asked by Arsenal and Premier League clubs in general, he’s still hopeful an agreement could be reached.
We’ll see if Alexis is coming. I do not know yet, I know him very well. He is a spectacular player. And with him, we would surely improve
Vidal told Bild.
We already have a lot of top-level players. We are the best club in the world. With Alexis, we would be even stronger
the Chile international said, the man who has been assigned with the unofficial task to… lure Sanchez to Bayern.
Having scored 30 goals in all competitions last season, and shown how important he is to the team, Sanchez is pressed by Arsenal to sign a new deal, since his current one expires in a year from now.
The Gunners haven’t succeeded that yet, and the more time passes, the more probable it looks to see the Chilean star wearing another jersey next season.
