Man United target Sanches confirms he wants to leave

Renato Sanches has outlined his desire to leave Bayern Munich in the search for first-team football.

Sanches joined Bayern from Benfica last summer for around £27million.

The midfielder was one of the most expensive players ever of those with fewer than 50 starts, but found playing time difficult to come by in Germany.

The 19-year-old started just nine games under Carlo Ancelotti in his first season, and with both AC Milan and Manchester United circling, he is considering his future.

“AC Milan is an interesting option,” he told SportBild. “If the opportunity arises and the clubs can agree, I would like to see them.

“I am now on the China tour with FC Bayern, but after that we will get together in Munich and hopefully find a solution.

“I’m young, I want and I have to play a lot. I think the chance to do so is greater in Milan than in Munich.

“Of course, I’d like to play more. That’s why I would like to change and go to a club that can give me more opportunities.”
