Renato Sanches has been linked with the Red Devils for some time now as the club tries to rebuild their team this summer after a horrendous season so far. The Portugal midfielder has been on United’s radar for a long time now, as the club got their offer of £35m rejected for the 18-year-old player and this time around United are hopeful of completing a deal at around £40m while Benfica are holding a release clause for the player at £47m.
Adding Sanches into their squad will obviously bolster United’s midfield options with Luke Shaw, David De Gea and Anthony Martial already in the club. Sanches appeared at Benfica’s first team earlier this season and has already made his Portugal national team debut as well.
Reports suggest that Real Madrid are also interested in the 19-year-old old player, however, United are said to be having an upper hand in signing the player.
