L’Equipe: How Jorge Mendes disrupted Milan’s agreement with Renato Sanches

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan felt that everything was in place for them to sign Renato Sanches from Lille until Paris Saint-Germain’s interest emerged, it is claimed.

According to reports from L’Equipe (via MilanNews) this morning, Sanches had found an agreement with Milan over personal terms but when PSG came in with a double salary offer of €6m net per season, he no longer had any doubts about the his choice to stay and play in France.

The French source adds that it was Jorge Mendes who started the negotiations between PSG and Lille, putting the two clubs in contact and gradually bringing them closer together in the negotiations.

The Parisians started with an offer of €10m and then eventually reached €13m as a fixed sum with €2m in bonuses added to complete the operation. Milan, meanwhile, have been left without a midfield signing and must make a new acquisition to replace Franck Kessie.

  1. Parasite wanted a commision and PSG was willing to pay. As long as there are no proper regulations limiting what bloodsucking managers can do (take NBA, NFL or any Murican sport for example) this will keep happening.

    We’ve seen it with late Raiola, with Mendes, Atangana etc.

    Clubs and play

    1. I hit enter toosoon.

      *Clubs and players will suffer at the hands of greed and self-serving of managers. Limiting or removing manager commissions completely and giving them maximum % they can get from client salary and salary alone (i think in NFL is about 5%) would completely remove them as a factor in negotiations and they would only fight for their client and their clients income, because that is what their cut would be based on.

  2. A man hot a better deal for his client and you are here calling him names, isn’t thag his job? To get better deals for his client…sometimes I wonder how the age of these commenters, everything is all about sentiments for you, if you were an agent, wouldn’t getting a better deal be your priority…players want him to manage them because of deals like this, Mendes is doing his job, if Milan didn’t waste time as usual and completed the deal, Mendes might not need another deal but the transfer took Milan from January to July so….Mendes got a better deal for his client and as a business, I admire him for that

    1. We wouldn’t do it if that was true. He actually got a better deal for himself. Players pay nor transfer fee were never in question, only managers commision.

      Bottom line, Medes is a parasite and a lowlife. He represents everything that is wrong with modern football and if Hell exists, there is a special place for him there, Mino is already waiting there to greet him.

  3. Milan should have sing him a long time ago but poor and slowly transfer policy make PSG interest Marge i prepare tameze then illic he cool the ball pressure like kessie

  4. Thank you mendez for making AC Milan dodge the bullet from renato. He is not even suit double pivot due to bad defensive stat
