Renato Sanches transfer fee

PSG expects Renato Sanches

Renato Sanches transfer fee of 15 million euros

Although negotiations with Lille have not yet resulted in final results, the PSG side is confident to complete the recruitment of the Portuguese midfielder in the next few days. Because despite being pursued by Milan and Chelsea at the same time, Sanches only single-mindedly turned to PSG. In a statement a few days ago, he bluntly affirmed that if he did not stay in Lille, the next stop could only be PSG. The Northern team has also accepted the decision of the 24-year-old midfielder.

It is known that representatives of PSG and Lille are discussing two options. Firstly, Lille declares Renato Sanches transfer fee of 15 million euros and PSG needs to hand over enough cash. Second, the two sides agreed to a one-year loan agreement with an option to buy it permanently at the end of the season for 12-15 million euros.

In fact, PSG wanted to quickly settle the Sanches transfer before going on a tour in Japan on July 16. However, Lille’s side always emphasizes that they will only sit at the negotiating table if the Ligue 1 champions are willing to spend at least 15 million euros. At that time, PSG only agreed to spend less than 12 million euros for the player with one year remaining on his contract with Lille. Now, Luis Campos wants to speed up the negotiations to close the Sanches case.

Officially become new players of PSG

Recently, Sanches has put pen to paper on a 5-year contract with the Parc des Princes team, with the option to extend for another 12 months. Sanches became one of the few players who had the opportunity to be a teammate of both Ronaldo and Messi. In addition, he is the 5th rookie of PSG this summer after Nordi Mukiele, Nuno Mendes, Vitinha, and Hugo Ekitike.

With Sanches, PSG will have a midfielder rich in power and potential for mutations. It should be noted that Sanches can easily integrate with the Park of the Prince’s team when in the PSG squad there are many players from the Portuguese-speaking community. Not only that, in the PSG midfield, there are two of his teammates in the Portugal team, Pereira Danilo and Vitinha.


Renato Sanches transfer history


He started his career at Benfica and made his debut in October 2015. During the 2014-2015 season, he and Benfica won a double title of Primeira Liga and Taca da Liga. Sanches made his debut for the Portuguese national team in March 2016 and three months later he qualified for Euro 2016.

In October 2016, he was honored to become the owner of the “Golden Boy” award for the best young player, the highest award for players under the age of 21 playing in Europe. This is the most brilliant moment in the career of the young Portuguese player when he becomes the target of many top giants in the sky.

Bayern Munich

The career path of this 21-year-old player took a big turn until the event of Renato Sanches transfer to Bayern Munich for 35 million euros. Once expected to be a worthy replacement for the old general Xabi Alonso, but Sanches has become a big disappointment despite not having finished a season. Bayern, from where it seemed to have earned a bargain when defeating formidable opponents like M.U, Chelsea, and Inter to get the “jewel”, is now struggling to find a way to “get rid of” the star every day. 


Joining Lille in the summer of 2019 for a transfer fee of up to 20 million euros, Sanches became the most expensive purchase in the history of the Northern team. However, in the first season, Sanches was rarely used by coach Christophe Galtier because of constant injuries. In the 2020/21 season, although still suffering from injuries, Sanches always plays explosively if he has the opportunity to play. He played a significant role in Lille’s Ligue 1 2020/21 championship and made a strong impression at EURO 2020.

Sanches played so well at EURO 2020 that the fans did not hesitate to compare him to N’Golo Kante, even outperforming the senior in the confrontation in the France-Portugal match…

In short, Renato Sanches is a good-skilled player that’s expected to make a great impression this season. To update his latest news, please join our website transfer in football.
