PSG strikes a blow by recruiting Renato Sanches

Like every year, the transfer windows of Paris Saint-Germain are eagerly awaited. If the Kylian Mbappé file has already been settled with the extension of the principal concerned, the capital club still has other hot issues to manage such as the future of its Brazilian Neymar or the sale of undesirables. In terms of arrivals, many names have been mentioned such as Milan Skriniar (Inter), Vitinha (FC Porto) or Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo). But the French champions also quickly became interested in Renato Sanches, the LOSC midfielder who made 32 appearances in 2021-2022 (2 goals, 5 caviars).

Seeing AC Milan close to an agreement with the Portuguese international (32 caps, 3 achievements), the Parisians led by their new sports adviser Luis Campos quickly turned to the 24-year-old player. But while a price of 15 million euros was mentioned with the Rossoneri, the Mastiffs would have asked Paris SG for the double, who wanted to send him 10 million euros or nothing. Finally, after several weeks of negotiations, the Ile-de-France team managed to get their hands on the former Bayern Munich player.

Renato Sanches quickly installed next to Verratti?

“Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the signing of Renato Sanches for the next five seasons. The Portuguese midfielder is linked to the capital club until June 30, 2027., explain the Parisians in their press release published a few minutes ago. Two years after arriving in France and signing for LOSC, Renato Sanches is taking a new step in his career by joining Paris Saint-Germain where he will find compatriots like Nuno Mendes, Danilo Pereira and former Porto Vitinha. But above all, we will have to find a place in the middle.

If we take a closer look at the Parisian workforce, Renato Sanches should succeed in settling in the midfield alongside Marco Verratti, untouchable in this sector. Especially since elements like Georginio Wijnaldum, Idrissa Gueye or even Leandro Paredes are not at all in the foreground on the Parc des Princes side. The first matches in August should quickly bring us some answers even if he took a slight delay since he did not prepare with LOSC while Galtier was able to count on Vitinha to accompany Verratti.
