Bayern Munich manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has admitted that likes Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and is open to bringing him to the Allianz Arena.
“If an opportunity comes up, the club will be ready,” Ancelotti said at a media conference to mark the first day of Bayern’s pre-season preparations on Saturday.
“There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis.”
Reports had claimed that Bayern were not willing to pay big transfer fees for players above 29, but Ancelotti appears more keen to do a deal for Sanchez.
He added: “There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many directions.
“I believe that the market is currently somewhat crazy – and Bayern is not a crazy club.
“I know the culture of this club and will not ask for any players for whom the club has to spend crazy sums, but if there are occasions, why not?”
