Bayern Munich have stated that they will accept €48m for Renato Sanches but doubt Milan are ready to meet their demands.
Sanches has emerged as a midfield target for Milan, with talks commencing last week, but Karl-Heinz Rummenigge made it clear that although the Portugal starlet “won’t get enough minutes” at Bayern, his club would only sell on their terms.
“He won’t get enough minutes at Bayern, so we’re willing to negotiate a loan deal and maybe beyond that,” the CEO was quoted as saying by Tuttomercatoweb from China.
“I’m not the Coach, but I think Renato needs regular football. I can confirm Milan’s interest, but talks didn’t progress last week.
“If a club are interested in a Bayern player, they must be ready to deal with significant economic figures and I don’t feel that Milan are ready to meet our demands.
“We’ll say that it wouldn’t be bad if a €48m offer came in for him…”
The Germans bought Sanches in a deal that could rise to €80m last summer but paid Benfica only €35m up front, while the 18-year-old made just 25 fleeting appearances in 2016-17.
