Arsenal join Man United in keeping tabs on top class £40m teenager

Renato SanchesThe rest of the Transfer Tavern were slightly concerned as to why the Arsenal fans had such smug smiles on their faces this evening despite their side’s crumbling title challenge.

That was, however, until reports from the Daily Mail emerged that the Gunners were scouting long term Manchester United target Renato Sanches ahead of a potential summer move.

A hugely rated young Portuguese international, the 18-year old has been widely tipped for a mega money move to Old Trafford this summer after emerging through the ranks in Lisbon.

Talks are said to be ongoing between the two clubs for a number of months as they look to tie up a deal that could eventually cost up to £40m.

A dynamic box-to-box midfielder, the teen sensation is a hugely promising talent and likely to be at the forefront of European football for a number of years.

As a result, the Gunners reportedly commissioned a scouting mission of their own in order to run the rule over the exceptional engine room operator, who is fast becoming one of the most talked about names in football.

Arsenal fans, how highly do you rate Renato Sanches? Would it be even sweeter to nab him out of the clutches of Man United?
