Another day, another rumor of Alexis Sánchez leaving Arsenal for greener pastures. This latest rumor comes courtesy of journalist Tancredi Palmeri.

If for some reason that tweet did not show up for your , the report is that Bayern Munich is set to announce a bid for Alexis sometime this week. It should be noted that Palmeri does not have a great track record of accuracy. So don’t hold your breath for said announcement.

Still, there have been many rumors linking Arsenal’s star to Bayern Munich, and with good reason. Alexis is entering into the last year of his contract and has yet to sign a new deal. Plus, given the spectacular season he just had, scoring 30 goals in all competitions, it’s no surprise that giant clubs like Bayern Munich would be interested in his talents.

And all things considered, if we were to lose Alexis this offseason, it would probably be better to lose him to Bayern than another Premier League club like Manchester City. Especially since we don’t have to worry about facing them in the Champions League next year.
