PSG: it’s settled for Renato Sanches!


Paris Saint-Germain will recruit Renato Sanches. According to the newspaper The Team, the capital club has reached an agreement with Lille for the transfer of the Portuguese midfielder. The Parisian management will pay 15 million euros for the 24-year-old player.

A 15 million deal

Paris Saint-Germain sees the end of the tunnel for one of its summer tracks. Barring a turnaround, the capital club will secure the services of Renato Sanches, the Lille midfielder, under contract until June 2023. According to information from the daily The Team, the Parisian leaders reached an agreement with LOSC on Tuesday evening for the transfer of the 24-year-old Portuguese international, also monitored by AC Milan. While he initially wanted to attract the former member of Bayern Munich in the form of a loan with a mandatory purchase option, the reigning French champion ended up accepting a permanent transfer. According to our colleagues, the two parties have agreed for the sum of 15 million euros.

90 games with Lille

After the Portuguese midfielder from FC Porto Vitinha, the French striker from Stade de Reims Hugo Ekitike and the tricolor right side from RB Leipzig Nordi Mukiele, Renato Sanches will in turn land in the squad coached by Christophe Galtier. Recruited by the Mastiffs during the summer of 2019 against a check for 20 million euros, the former resident of Swansea City will have played 90 matches in all competitions with the 2021 French champion, for 6 goals. During the 2021-2022 season, the 2016 European champion took part in 31 games, for 24 games and one achievement in Ligue 1. With this expected arrival in the midfield, Paris Saint-Germain will have to lighten their ranks and find a landing point for his undesirables. Pushed towards the exit, Georginio Wijnaldum and Idrissa Gueye no longer enter into the plans of the recent winner of the Trophée des Champions.
