Man United ready to complete deal for £58.8m midfielder

vangaal99921Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are enjoying a bottle of wine this brisk January morning, as they discuss some exciting reports from the continent that hint towards a massive deal.

Goal state Renato Sanches could soon be on his way to Manchester United from Benfica after the all-action central midfielder impressed Red Devils officials in the past few weeks.

The highly-rated 18-year-old only broke into Benfica’s side this season but his performances have attracted a vast number of top sides from European football, including a fair few Premier League sides.

However, it’s reported United are set to seal a deal for the teenager that has a whopping transfer release clause of £58.8m– though Louis Van Gaal’s side are hopeful of negotiating a deal worth far less than that audacious figure.

With Sanches contracted to Benfica until 2020 though, a number of our punters are concerned at how high the price could rise and are unsure as to whether the player is worth shedding out a truckload for- but our landlord is aware that he’s one of the most exciting prospects in European football.

United fans, could Renato Sanches be your next Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments below!
