CM: Milan believe patience will pay off in Renato Sanches saga as PSG want other targets

By Oliver Fisher -

The Renato Sanches saga continues to drag on but Paris Saint-Germain’s activity is giving AC Milan renewed hope, a report claims.

According to, PSG made an attempt to sign Seko Fofana from RC Lens that was unsuccessful but rather than turning to Sanches, the new head coach Christophe Galtier is asking for Kephren Thuram of OGC Nice to complete the midfield department after the arrival of Vitinha.

At the moment the Ligue 1 champions do not consider Sanches to be their firs choice and therefore negotiating a deal for him is far from a priority despite the rumours that the Portugal international is pushing for a move there to link back up with Galtier and director Luis Campos, whom he worked with at Lille.

The tentative interest from PSG has allowed Jorge Mendes to ask for more advantageous economic conditions for himself and his client in negotiations with Milan. The Rossoneri had an agreement in principle with Sanches at €3.2m net per season plus bonuses, but PSG’s mere approach raised the demands to €4.5m in view of this summer.

With his contract expiring in just one year and the relatively small expense required to purchase him from Lille, Mendes believes he can demand more from suitors. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are not willing to participate in an auction and they are still convinced that the waiting game could pay off.

To date the only offer Lille have received is from Milan and it is €10m with bonuses worth a potential extra €5m. There are no official approaches from Paris Saint-Germain, who to date are mainly focused on the Skriniar, the striker role (Ekitike or Scamacca) and Fofana or Thuram.

    1. Agreed. I mean we should just offer him 4.5M and be done w it. Sanches for 10M + 5M in bonuses is a steal. You can still sell him for profit down the road as he is still young enough. But alas I’m sure we won’t spend the extra million or so. Players want to be PAID their fair market value (Ziyech) and won’t always want to take pay cuts. Tired of this haggling. Just go sign 20 year olds who will accept low salaries and be done with it or old vets nobody wants (Acerbi). Stop wasting time chasing players we will not get (Arsenio, Dybala). M&M deserve more support from Ownership – of these are the players they have identified and are within reason – we should get them. but this is what you get when you chose an investment fund like Redbird over one (that actually has $$) like Investcorp.
