Renato Sanches

AC Milan could be close to signing Renato Sanches from Bayern Munich

Milan spend big

AC Milan have been tearing it up in this transfer window. Their splurge has been the biggest ever by an Italian club in a single window. As well as bringing in Leonardo Bonucci, they’ve signed Kessie, Silva, Conti and Calhanoglu.

It’s not over yet either. The revived Serie A giants, backed by money from their Chinese takeover, want to bring in a world class forward with both Andrea Belotti and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being mooted.

Sanches chase

Reports broke in Portugal today about interest in Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches.

Record newspaper claim that the Rossoneri want to take him on a two-year loan for €7m with an option to buy Sanches in 2019 for an additional €40m. It would be a very good deal for a player with a lot of potential.

Although Sanches flopped in his first season at Bayern – failing to get a goal or assist from 25 appearances – he was so impressive in the previous season that the German giants spent an initial €35m on him.

That fee could rise to €80m if Sanches meets the bonuses included. One was for €20m if he was short-listed for the Ballon d’Or. Still only 19-years-old, the Euro 2016 winner won’t turn 20 until next month.
