AC Milan show interest in Renato Sanches

AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli has confirmed the Italian club are still interested in signing Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches.

“I’ve known him since his Benfica days. He’s a great player and we’ve got a great relationship with Bayern. I cannot exclude that this is a move that we could think about making,” Mirabelli told Mediaset.

Reports last week in Portugal suggested that Milan would acquire Sanches via a two-year loan, before making a permanent €47 million transfer.

However, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge doesn’t believe Milan are willing to meet the price tag set by the Bundesliga club.

“However, I have to say we haven’t made any progress since they made contact in the middle of last week. If you want to loan a player from Bayern Munich there are obviously financial aspects to any deal,” Rummenigge via ESPN.

“At any rate, I have the impression that AC Milan isn’t ready to meet our financial requirements and as long as that’s the case nothing will happen.”
