Jorge Mendes offers Portuguese starlet to AC Milan

Jorge Mendes offers Portuguese starlet to AC Milan

According to reports in Portugal, Milan are keen on taking the talented youngster on a €7 million loan deal for two seasons, with the option to buy in 2019 for an additional €40 million.

Bayern will start their pre-season tour of China and Singapore on Wednesday when they play Arsenal in Shanghai.

Renato Sanches could be on the move this summer. Sanches won the award for best young player of the tournament and joined Bayern Munich for an initial £30m.

The Red Devils have instead been linked with the likes of Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier and Fabinho, with Milan seemingly now leading the chase for the 19-year-old's signature. While Bayern Munich won the race, he struggled to assert himself under Carlo Ancelotti.

Rummenigge confirmed talks are ongoing between the two sides but did concede that Milan are yet to meet their asking price.

Sanches couldn't break into Bayern's team.

Reports out of Germany on Monday report that Portuguese worldwide midfielder Renato Sanches is set to join Milan from Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed AC Milan have shown interest in midfielder Renato Sanches.

I have the impression that AC Milan are not ready to meet our economic demands, and as long as (that is the case) nothing will be done. At €48million (£42m) I would not be dissatisfied'.

Bayern's transfer fee for Sanches could rise to €80m if the player is named in the top three for the Ballon d'Or, or in the Federation Internationale de Football Association team of the year. Manchester City are understood to be stepping up their interest in the Chilean as a result of these comments, despite Gunners boss Arsène Wenger remaining adamant Alexis won't join the Sky Blues.
