Renato Sanches snubs Milan to join PSG

Renato Sanches

Paris Saint Germain have officially announced the signing of Renato Sanches from Lille. The Portuguese Midfielder made the move after positive talks with PSG boss Galtier. Renato Sanches was a player that was high in demand by other European heavyweights also. Serie A champions Milan were also trying to lure Sanches to Italy and had made official bids that were rejected by LOSC Lille.

PSG continue their massive summer transfer business. The Ligue 1 champions have signed the likes of Mukiele and Vitinha already for the first team. President Khellaifi has stressed the fact that they want European Success this season. Galtier has been brought in to replace Pochettino who was deemed a failure. Renato Sanches will be looking to make an instant impact for the Parisians and stake his claim in the midfield.

Milan were trying to get Sanches before PSG. The Serie A outfit have been looking for a box-to-box midfielder and Sanches was topping the list. But he was not looking to move out of France and that too to Italy. PSG were fast in the negotiations and managed to get him for a bargain price. With the looks of it, it seems that PSG are doing serious business this summer. They got Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, and Donnarumma for free last season also.

What to expect from Renato Sanches at PSG?

It is no doubt that Renato Sanches is a big admirer of Galtier and vice-versa too. Galtier had been scouting Sanches at his previous club also but it was not possible. Sanches did not think twice about making a decision over joining PSG. His compatriot Vitinha also joined the club last month and has been impressive so far. But PSG have always missed something in their midfield. Except for Verratti, their midfield looks average at best.

Renato adds much-needed pace and work rate in their midfield. The 25-year-old is a perfect box-to-box midfielder and complements Paris’s style completely. He has all the qualities to succeed at PSG. Was it the right choice to snub Milan? Only time will tell!
