With another poor season under the management of Louis Van Gaal, Manchester United needs quality reinforcements this summer to get back to winning ways. It is reported that they have already started planning for next season, by lining up a deal to sign a top dynamic midfielder from Primeira Liga outfit Benfica.
Renato Saches, the young wonderkid, has been reported by the Sun that he has already agreed personal terms with the Red Devils, in a deal worth 60 million Euros on a four-year deal.
Sanches, who plays as a box-to-box midfielder in the centre of the park for Benifica, has also attracted interest from rivals Manchester City and French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
The 18-year old, dubbed the new “Ronaldinho”, has been often praised for his quick feet, wonderful array of skills and ability to pick out a pass in the final third.
This move is also reportedly done by the executive board of Manchester United, who are certainly pumping in the money in order to help the club return to its glory days after a less than impressive few years – firstly under David Moyes and now Louis Van Gaal.
However, it seems they have not make the call whether to keep the current Dutch coach or not for next season, and it might well depends if they lift the F.A cup next month.
