Serie A heavyweights AC Milan will face tough competition from Real Madrid in the battle to acquire Portuguese international Renato Sanches
In a report by Spanish website Fichajes, it is said that Real Madrid is interested in signing Renato Sanches for an undisclosed fee during the summer transfer window. In addition to Serie A heavyweights AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester City, the 24-year-old Portuguese international is attracting interest from several other clubs.
The young Renato Sanches was once hailed as a “child prodigy” as he rose to prominence with Benfica while still in his adolescent years. Following that, the then-teenage wonderkid earned a major transfer to Bayern Munich. That, regrettably, did not turn out as well as had been hoped. Sanches’s harrowing experience in Bavaria came to an end in August 2019, when he signed for Lille.
The 24-year-old’s career has been transformed since joining the Ligue 1 club. He has found his best form while recovering his place in the Portuguese national side. With Les Dogues, Sanches has contributed six goals and 10 assists throughout the course of his 84 games. However, his time at Lille might come to an end during the summer transfer window. Real Madrid and AC Milan are both showing interest in signing him.
Real Madrid may want to sign a midfielder during the summer transfer window. Dani Ceballos and Isco both may leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. Furthermore, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are reaching the end of their individual careers. So, Real Madrid will need to put in place a succession plan for these two midfielders.
What option does Los Blancos have in the midfield position?
Several midfielders, notably Paul Pogba, have been on Real Madrid’s radar as a consequence of this. Renato Sanches is now appearing as a realistic option for the club. Also in the fight to recruit the 24-year-old Portuguese international from Lille during this summer’s transfer window, the Spanish giants are giving AC Milan a run for their money.
In the summer transfer window, the Serie A heavyweights are in the market for a central midfielder. Franck Kessie will join Barcelona on a Bosman deal from Inter Milan. As a result, Sanches is a player worth considering for AC Milan, even though Real Madrid has entered the picture. The Rossoneri will also face competition from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in their pursuit of the Brazilian.
So, the Serie A giants are keeping their options open/ Corentin Tolisso, who happens to be a target for Real Madrid, emerging as a potential replacement for Renato Sanches in the short term. When it comes to the 24-year-old Portuguese international, a bright future seems to be in store for him.
