Barring a dramatic change, Paris Saint-Germain will recruit Renato Sanches. The Portuguese midfielder from Lille will be transferred to the French capital for the sum of 15 million euros.
Official announcement expected on Thursday
Paris Saint-Germain is preparing to formalize its fourth reinforcement of the summer. After Portuguese midfielder Vitinha, landed from FC Porto for 41.50 million euros, French striker Hugo Ekitike, on loan with option to buy from Stade de Reims, and French right-back Nordi Mukiele, recruited against a check for 12 million euros, the club of the capital will offer the services of Renato Sanches. As reported by the newspaper The Team and listed on our site, the reigning French champion has reached an agreement with the leaders of Lille for the arrival of the Portuguese midfielder. Paris Saint-Germain will pay the sum of 15 million euros for the 24-year-old player, who entered the last year of his commitment to LOSC.
31 games in 2021-2022
According to newspaper information The Parisian and radio France Blue, the former Bayer Munich player was expected this Wednesday afternoon in the Parisian facilities to pass the medical examination. In the process, Paris Saint-Germain intends to formalize the arrival of the native of Lisbon this Thursday, for a contract period which is not yet known. 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.
Recruited to fill a well-supplied sector, Renato Sanches will certainly benefit from playing time, all the more so with the expected departures of Georginio Wijnaldum and Idrissa Gueye. The Dutch international is to join Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma on a loan deal that includes an option to buy. For his part, the Senegalese will be transferred to Everton, his former club.
Medical examination of Renato Sanches scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Even if everything is almost settled on this transfer, PSG will formalize the signing tomorrow during the day for @renatosanches35 @francebleuparis #fbsport
