Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern don’t really know what to make of the news they are reading in the Express (via Portuguese newspaper O Jogo) – with the publication suggesting that the Red Devils are plotting a major £58.8m bid for Benfica youngster Renato Sanches.
The media outlet claims that the Red Devils sent scouts to watch the young midfielder in action for Benfica on the weekend, and this has certainly got the Man United fans here in the Tavern listening!
At the age of just 19, Sanches is already making a name for himself in European football, having made several influential appearances for the Portuguese outfit.
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he has seen Sanches play a number of times for the European club, and feels he has the potential to become a star in the Premier League – however, feels the extortionate price tag that is on his head is simply ludicrous!
United fans here in the Tavern have been in a downbeat mood for the majority of this season, and are just hoping Louis van Gaal pulls his finger out and actually signs some decent players!
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Do you know much about Renato Sanches? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
