Manchester United given boost as Bayern lower Renato Sanches’ asking price

According to reports in Germany, Manchester United have been encouraged to make a move for Renato Sanches after Bayern lowered the midfielder’s asking price.

Bayern signed Sanches from Benfica for €35 million (£27.5m) last year, has failed to make an impact in his first season in Germany, starting just nine games in all competitions for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Last month, German daily Bild claimed that Bayern would be willing to sell Sanches if they fully recouped the €35m they initially paid to Benfica.

But on Thursday, Kicker reported that the Portugal international’s asking price has now been slightly lowered with Bayern now open to accepting a bid of €30m (£26m).

Sanches is currently on international duty with Portugal at the Under-21 European Championship after being overlooked for the senior squad’s Confederations Cup campaign in Russia.

Manchester United missed out on Sanches last year but Jose Mourinho admitted that he would have urged Ed Woodward to sign the midfielder if he replaced Louis van Gaal earlier.
