Deal Close: Man United finally ready to seal major €60m move, respected journalist confirms

Renato Sanches

Our Manchester United supporting punters in this evening have Twitter refreshed every couple of seconds today following a tweet from notable journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Renato Sanches is reportedly close to agreeing a deal to move to Old Trafford from Portuguese giants Benfica over the course of the summer.

Despite being just 18-years of age, the midfielder has reportedly emerged as a £40m target for the Red Devils after emerging as one of the continent’s major up and coming talents.

An imposing box-to-box midfielder, the recently capped Portugal star provides energy and drive, two traits painfully lacking in the United team at their worst this season.

Anthony Martial moved for a blockbuster fee with very little previous pedigree, though has gone onto become one of the team’s most important players.

Manchester City have also been linked with making a move for the teenager, though it is reported to be the Red Devils who’ve seized the initiative.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty as to who will be in charge of the club next season, even potential manager Jose Mourinho is said to be a big admirer of Sanches.

Can Sanches have the same sort of impact as Martial? Can he become one of the best for years to come?
