Man United turn to €35m Portuguese star following monumental Bayern blow

Joao Mario

The news that Renato Sanches had joined Bayern Munich yesterday rocked the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, with the highly rated Portugal star seemingly set for Old Trafford.

It came as a huge blow, though as the old saying goes, there’s plenty more fish in the sea.

With the nature of the rumour mill being one that never stops churning, reports from Portuguese outlet A Bola suggest the Red Devils will not be left reeling too long.

Fresh from missing out on the talented teen, they are reportedly set to make international teammate Joao Mario a priority target this summer.

The Sporting Lisbon winger has had somewhat of a breakthrough this season, scoring six goals and registering a further 11 assists in the Portuguese capital.

It is claimed the Manchester giants are prepared to pay between €35-€40m in order to land the 23-year old before the European Championships in France, in an effort to introduce more pace into their ailing attack.

Should Man United be focusing on wingers? Do they need more of them?
