European golden boy, Renato Sanches has been in the news for some time now, especially regarding his future in Germany.
The Portuguese midfielder had a stunning year in 2016, as he won the Euros with Portugal with performances that saw Bayern Munich pay a record £35 million for his signature that summer. However, he has failed to make an impression on Carlo Ancelotti and saw very limited game time last season.
He appears to be on his way out of the German champions after the club’s president admitted that at his age, he needs to play more.
Several teams are willing to sign him, with Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claiming there are at least 10 teams looking for Sanches’ signature.
Antonio Conte had reportedly asked if he can have the player on loan for one season, as the Italian wants him mainly as a backup to his current crop of midfielders, but Bayern Munich would love him to join a team where he can play regularly.
Bayern Munich is willing to sell Sanches for £43 million, but his bad season last year means that figure is unrealistic and Bayern are ready to sanction an initial loan deal.
