Milan make Renato Sanches offer, Arsenal lie in wait

French reports suggest Milan have made a formal offer for LOSC Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, but Arsenal are preparing their own bid too.

The 24-year-old has long been a target for top clubs, as Barcelona had tried to approach him over the summer, but failed to agree a transfer fee, hampered also by a knee injury.

Now the Corriere dello Sport claims Milan have put forward the first official proposal to buy Sanches in January.

This is confirmed by le10sport in France, who go further and warn that although the bid is not yet in writing, Arsenal are very strong on Renato Sanches and will make their move very soon.

Renato Sanches already has 32 senior caps for Portugal, in which he scored three goals and also provided three assists for his teammates.

Milan already have a good working relationship with LOSC Lille, having signed Mike Maignan over the summer to go in goal.

    I was just talking to someone about him the other day – about how there was a lot of talk a few years ago about Sanches going to Milan, and then he went to Swansea and tanked… then took time to get back to form.

    If he’s Kessie’s replacement I’d say go for it.

    I have admired Renato Sanches for a while. I think he really does have all of the tools to be a complete midfielder but he stint at Swansea really concerned me. Depending on the numbers he’s a sound investment whether Kessie stays or goes.

    This is a real player. At milan he will be great

    I’ve followed this guy since he made his Portugal debut at 18 years old in Euro 2016. He made his big money move to Bayern soon after and failed to live up to expectations despite the obvious talent. He’s finally matured now at 24. He played magnificently against us last year in Europa League. He’s an upgrade to Kessie in many aspects. I hope we sign him.

    who cares

    He still has an inspired mindset which is important. Maignan has it, too. Players like Kessie and Dunnarumma lose that fire once they feel they’re owed something and their skills become worthless as they stop putting in the effort that utilizes the skills.

    Renato is probably too expensive but even a less proven player would be better than Kessie. Honestly I would be fine with Tonali, Bennacer and Pobega then use the saved transfer money to give some deserved renewals. That inspired mindset will get us further than whiny players ever will.
