Arturo Vidal thinks Bayern Munich would “improve” with Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in their side next season.
Sanchez, who plays with Vidal for Chile, is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium next summer with the two parties unable to agree on a new deal.
The 28-year-old was in stunning form for Arsenal last campaign, scoring 30 goals in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s men, despite their struggles in the Premier League.
And Vidal thinks Sanchez, who has been linked with Bayern and PSG, would be the perfect fit for the Bundesliga champions and has urged him to join him in Munich.
“We’ll see if Alexis is coming. I do not know yet,” Vidal said, speaking to SportBild.
“I know him very well. He is a spectacular player. And we would certainly improve with him.”
Vidal’s comments came in the wake of former Bayern boss Ottmar Hitzfeld’s claims that the German side would be better off with Sanchez in their team.
“He is a player in the category that can make Bayern a better team,” Hitzfeld told SportBild.
“But it’s important to make decisions as quickly as possible, because the longer you wait the more expensive a player becomes.”
