As per the German sources, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are pushing their midfielder and Manchester United top target Renato Sanches towards the exit door and are ready to accept a big loss on the youngster in order to get him off their books.
The Allianz Arena side have pulled off a major coup by signing the Portuguese teenage sensation last summer, with Renato Sanches having impressed both for Benfica and national team at Euro 2016.
Bayern beat competition from the likes of Man United and Real Madrid to secure Sanches’ signature, but he endured a miserable season in which he started just six league matches.
And now, the recent reports from the German publication Bild claim that the 19-year-old starlet will be allowed to leave the club, with Bayern prepared to let him go for just €35m (£30.6m).
That fee would represent a huge loss for the German giants, who paid an initial €35m last summer alongside a host of additional payments and clauses that added another €45m to the deal.
With Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti clearly not rating a player who failed to register a single goal or assist in 17 league appearances, Bundesliga winners are keen to offload the Portugal international before their outlay reaches the €80m figure they are expected to pay over the course of his five-year deal.
