Sanchez has decided on his next club says Bayern chief

Franck Ribery is not guaranteed to be offered a new contract by Bayern Munich, according to the club's executive board chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Which presumably leaves the door open for the Chilean ace to leave Arsenal for Manchester City.

The Bayern president had just witnessed his side put three past Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion on Saturday - moving four points clear at the top of the table - and was unconcerned by his statement.

The Frenchman said: 'You say everybody thinks City will come in for Alexis [in January] - I am part of everybody and I don't think he will go.

He poured cold water on the idea of Sanchez joining him in Germany, .

Rummenigge has ruled out Bayern from trying to sign the Chilean in the summer, as the player appears to have his heart set on playing under Pep Guardiola.

Asked whether the club will extend the 34-year-old's contract, Rummenigge told Sky: "I can not answer this question seriously today".

"That's not an issue, and he is no direct substitute for Robert Lewandowski, as he is not a real centre-forward".

Sanchez is out of contract in the summer, though Arsenal will be looking to cash in on him during the January transfer window, if the fee is enough to sway an ardent Arsene Wenger.

Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all-time record goalscorer with his goal against Napoli.

Meanwhile, Rummenigge is looking for a front man. Injury to Thomas Muller has left back-up for Lewandowski in short supply.

'He's an Arsenal player and is so important for them, for his talent that he has, you have to try and control him'.

"We will not be ready to spend horrendous money on a transfer".
