Renato Sanches didn’t have the greatest of debut seasons last year with Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga giants have come out and admitted that the player could leave this summer
Bayern signed Corentin Tolisso from Lyon and Sebastian Rudy from Hoffenheim already during this transfer window, adding great depth to the midfield which may make Sanches expendable.
The likes of Manchester United and Juventus have been linked with a move for the former Benfica starlet, but Chelsea are listed as the favourites to sign the teenager according to Sky Bet.
Sanches made just six Bundesliga starts next season as he continues to develop as player, but it’s unlikely he’d get much of a look in the Chelsea starting line-up, especially with Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko set to complete his £40m move to the club.
That being said, Antonio Conte does want to add depth to his squad and while Chelsea are yet to make an official move for the Portugal international, the bookmakers have an idea that Chelsea are the team most likely to sign Sanches and they aren’t often wrong.
