Renato Sanches ‘physically and technically perfect’ vs. Salzburg amid reports of Milan scouting mission

By Oliver Fisher -

Lille midfielder Renato Sanches has drawn praise for his performance during their 1-0 win over RB Salzburg on home soil last night amid links with a move to AC Milan.

It has been well documented over the past couple of weeks that Milan have a keen interest in signing midfielder Renato Sanches from Lille, with virtually every major source confirming that the Rossoneri management are in talks with his agent Jorge Mendes over a potential move.

Last night Lille ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Jonathan David’s first-half goal and TMW gave a 7 out of 10 to Sanches in their player ratings, with plenty of praise for the Portuguese midfielder: “He was a giant in the middle of the field, physically and technically perfect, he was everywhere.”

It comes after Rudy Galetti on Twitter, Milan sent an emissary to France for the game between Lille and Salzburg. Sanches was one subject of the mission and by all accounts he put in a very good display in midfield, earning a rating of 7.3 on WhoScored.

  1. we ALL (rossoneri) should understand that kessie is an afrikan, and this his own oppounity for him to make (MONEY) in is football carrier. So i don’t see any reason why we (rossoneri) should be anrgy about his (kessie) own decison if to renew with MILAN or not, even donnarumma that was milan pricioues child fvk milan up even an italian for that matter (“dont take me raicia”) how much more a man fighting for a better life after is football carrier. lets not be selfish, we should try to understand others peoples fellings thank you!!!.. MATO YOLAND FINE$T

  2. Stick to what we know I really want Kessie to remain but this boy would be an excellent replacement. The thing is we then spend all our resources plugging another gap just like maignan. Are we ever going to spend a nice chunk on a striker who can guarantee 20 goals a season. We don’t even want to spend 15mil on a striker. If we had vlahovic…mamma Mia! The places we could go

  3. GET BOTH!

    Sanches is a more offensive player & is better than Bakayoko, Pobega, even Bennacer (yes, if you take off fan glasses- he is)
    He is finally where he was said to be years ago – and is consitent. This guy is at the beginning of his prime.

    Kessie should stay. I write this after win over Atleti, he has seen the potential. Our potential Desailly 2.0, he mustn’t be let go!

    Priorities seem to be elsewhere – but Sanches can play as AM as well as on the right.

    Both Kessie and Sanches are mch better than other players, except Tonali in the future. It was Milan’s mistake in the past to keep a lot of average players – let’s focus on resigning Kessie as he is still not that expensive and getting Sanches for 30m, he’s well worth it – and currently makes only 2,5m as well, so we don’t have to break bank.

    Let’s invest a little to win more in the next Champions League and get money and fame again. Being cheap and going with Faivre will not help us long term, he is bang average and would be good as a backup only (not for his price!)
