Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches has told the club that he wants to leave amid interest from Manchester United.
The 19-year-old has emerged as a shock target for the Red Devils this summer, despite joining the German giants’ last transfer summer window amid interest from the English giants.
Sanches was regarded as one of the hottest talents in Europe with his promising displays with Benfica but has become frustrated at his lack of chances at the Allianz Arena and wants to leave.
Reports in Italian outlet Calciomercato claim that the midfielder has informed Bayern Munich of his decision to leave this summer in search of first team opportunities elsewhere.
United boss Jose Mourinho has openly admired the qualities of Sanches and even admitted that he was disappointed that they could not sign him ahead of Bayern last summer.
It is understood that United are trying to add more firepower to their midfield in order to consolidate on their performances next season but they will have to beat Italian giants Juventus who have also enquired about the availability of the youngster.
Sanches is bent on leaving the Allianz Arena this summer but what seems to be known is the whether he will fancy a move to the Manchester United or Juventus.
