BAYERN MUNICH could pave the way for a summer of huge spending with a £100million double-swoop for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti.
But the German giants look to have jumped the queue, according to respected German newspaper Bild, which reports a £100million pot has been put aside to bring both players to the Allianz Arena.
Sanchez has cut a frustrated figure at times this season as Arsenal’s title bid faded early, and they now face a battle just to finish in the top four.

And SunSport reported earlier this month how his agent has already held talks with the German giants.
Bild claimed that Fernando Felicevich has spoken with Bayern over a potential summer move to the Allianz Arena.
And the fact that Felicevich also counts Bayern’s Arturo Vidal among his clients may bring its own advantages to the prospect of Sanchez joining Bayern.
SunSport has also previously reported how Verratti has attracted the attentions of Barcelona, meaning Bayern will have to move quickly.
The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, 24, is considered one of the best around in his position.
Mundo Deportivo report Barcelona have made initial steps to bring him to the Nou Camp after the club spoke to his agent, Donato Di Campli, during the 0-0 draw with Juventus in the Champions League second leg.
