Manchester United close in on deal for Bundesliga youngster

Bayern Munich is willing to cut their losses and allow Renato Sanches to leave the Allianz Arena for more playing time in another team. The European Golden boy has not enjoyed his time at the Bavarian club since he moved there for over £30 million last summer.

Jose Mourinho has previously stated that the only reason he did not sign the youngster was that he was appointed the manager of Manchester United late. He claimed if he had been named manager earlier, he could have tempted the Portugal international to join the Red Devils, he now has the chance to.

Sanches was limited to a few appearances for Bayern last season, and that is set to be the case again this year as the Bavarians have added more midfielders. The have signed Corentin Tolisso from Lyon, and the French midfielder looks the real deal, while James Rodriguez has also joined from Real Madrid on a two years loan deal. This addition means Sanches has fallen further down the pecking order.

He has been offered to Manchester United, and Mourinho believes he can help the youngster unlock his obvious potential. The Red Devils are set to swoop in on him this summer, although they would want a loan deal first with an option to buy the youngster afterwards. © 2017 Frontier Theme
