CM: Milan ‘big admirers’ of Lille star Renato Sanches – Rossoneri’s stance as asking price emerges

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are big admirers of Lille star Renato Sanches but he does not appear to be a priority at the moment, according to one journalist.

According to the latest from Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com during an Instagram live (via MilanPosts), Milan ‘really admire’ Renato Sanches who continues to shine for Portugal at the European Championships.

He is a profile that is in line with Elliott Management’s recruitment vision as he is still young and has big potential but can make an impact immediately. However, the problem is that Lille are asking for at least €30m to sell him and Milan are not intending to spend that for a midfielder.

Instead, they prefer to concentrate on securing Hakan Calhanoglu’s substitute, i.e. a player who is perhaps a more natural number 10 and will be an ideal fit for the responsibilities that the playmaker in Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 system has. For the latest on the left wing situation, click here.

    RS would be a big addition.Once again, here we go with the dumb negotiating tactics. A replacement for the departed Turk is a priority but further strengthening the midfield unit with hard working athletic players should not be secondary. Someone may need to let Elliott Mgt. know that AC Milan will play in the Champions League this fall.

    If Milan can borrow Renato Sanches, or sell them for 20 million, they will take him. Everything else is just a story

  6. I am Forzza says:

    AC.Milan finally has the opportunity to calm nervous fans and bring something worth investing, my position is that there is no calculation about it and that the money must be spent on these two players because they deserve every euro and the price will rise dramatically in Milan. they are called Renato Sanches and Jonathan Ikoné these are the two diamonds that Milan will wear in the coming years if bought.

  7. Eds says:

    He would be a great signing alongside Jessie, provide competition for Bennacer. With proper guidence and training I can see him being a good deep playmaker.

  8. RocketRacoon says:

    Maybe unpopular opinion but I would sell Bennacer and get RS with that money without even thinking about it. Kessie and Renato playing together would be very, very dominant and their styles complement each other so well, RS reminds me a lot of the best Edgar Davids.
