Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed they have dropped their interest in signing Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez for next season.

After head coach Carlo Ancelotti last week had his wish granted , Bayern have called off their bid to poach Chile’s hot-shot Sanchez from Arsenal.

“We are no longer involved. We have agreed with our coach that we won’t add [new players] in attack. It wouldn’t make any sense,” Rummenigge told German magazine .

Bayern had reportedly been vying with Manchester City to sign Sanchez, 28, Chile’s all-time top scorer, who has a year left on his Arsenal contract, but is stalling over extension negotiations with the Gunners.

Sanchez, who at times last season cut a disgruntled figure as Arsenal struggled with form, is not on the team’s pre-season tour to Australia and China as he rests after last month’s Confederation’s Cup when Chile lost to Germany in the final.

Bayern will start their pre-season tour of China and Singapore on Wednesday when they play Arsenal in Shanghai.
