Renato Sanches has recently burst into the scene and has shown brilliance far beyond his years. Benfica are well aware of interest have named a resounding fee of £45 million for the talented midfielder. The remaining fee will be add-ons based on performance.
Benfica’s president Luis Filipe Vieira has reportedly been in Manchester to meet with United’s representatives in recent weeks amid finalising a deal for the promising young star. The Portuguese side appear certain of losing one of their bright talents.
The Benfica manager had the following to say about the maturity of Sanches “What can I say that Renato has passed all the tests with distinction at Benfica.” Reports suggest talks have gone smoothly and that Sanches will be on United’s training in grounds as soon as the 10th of June before the Euros commence.
Sanches is a versatile player that can play various roles across midfield namely as a defensive midfielder or in the No.10 role. The midfielder is physically strong and has the ability to link up play and deal well with pressure. At only 18 years of age, Sanches has much to learn. However, United believe that he has the potential to be fundamental to the Red Devils in upcoming yeas to come.
Having previously struck a big money deal with Monaco for Martial; United hope Sanches will be equally as influential. Martial is already a fan favourite having been a standout performer despite doubt at first over his price-tag.
United are adamant that Sanches has the credentials to perform at similar heights. The fans will be eager to see if Sanches can nail down a spot in the starting 11 to guide United to their best again.
It seems United have wasted no time and are looking to act swiftly in the transfer market. They appear to have been able to beat off bitter rivals Manchester City to the highly-rated Portuguese star, Renato Sanches.
It seems United are well under way to ensure they can rebuild their squad to one that can challenge at the greatest level and if they can do it with young stars like Sanches , it will be a prolonged period of success.
