Arsene Wenger has claimed Bayern Munich “manipulated” Serge Gnabry into leaving Arsenal in 2016.
The Frenchman was still in charge at the Emirates Stadium, when the winger left for Germany, having made only 10 league appearances for the Gunners.
He found his way to Bayern via Werder Bremen and has since blossomed in Germany.
Wenger had hinted that there may have been foul play at work to lure him away from north London.
“We tried to extend his contract for a very long time and I think that Bayern manipulated behind the scenes, that if he went to Bremen he would join Bayern after.
