Bayern Munich have pulled out of the race to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, who is now running out of options.

Sanchez future in limbo

Bayern have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Chile international, and at one point were said to be in the box seat to do a deal, but Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says that is no longer the case.

The Bavarians swooped to sign James Rodriguez on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid last week, and it now looks as though that signing means they are no longer interest in Sanchez.

Sanchez has been quoted as saying he has made up his mind over his future, and is now waiting on Arsenal, but Rumminigge says that is of no concern to him.

"I do not know what he said, we are no longer involved,” Rummenigge revealed.

Rummenigge revealed the decision to end Bayern’s interest in Sanchez came after a conversation with Carlo Ancelotti, who is now very happy with his forward line.

"We've agreed with the coach that there will be no more additions in attack. That makes no sense,” he added.

After Arsene Wenger recently ruled out selling to a Premier League rival, it would appear that Sanchez’s last remaining hope of a move away will be if Paris Saint-Germain make a move.
