Amid growing interest from premier clubs from England and Italy, Renato Sanches discussed his future transfer move.


Renato Sanches believes that he is ready to make another big transfer move after his failure to shine at Bayern Munich.

The Portuguese star won the Golden Boy prize in 2016 following a sensational European Championship campaign during the same year. 

The 24-year-old, though, could not make himself a prominent figure at Allianz Arena in Germany. Moreover, his loan spell with Swansea was also not a desired one.


However, Sanches’ recent chronicles with Lille in the French top division has attracted many potential suitors such as Barcelona and Arsenal.

While talking about his future with L’Equipe, he said: “Maybe Milan and Arsenal are interested but I don’t know.”

“I spoke with my agent, I know which clubs are calling and which are not, but I can’t tell now. I know I’m ready.”


“If an offer comes in, I’ll find out what’s best for me.”

Sanches added: “When I arrived at Bayern, I was not ready to play in such a club. I was very young [18], and when I got ready, the opportunity to play with this team never came.”

“Today I feel ready. I understand football better, I have more experience, I know what to do to play in this kind of club and that changes everything.”
