Juve request Sanches on loan

Juventus are taking a low-cost approach to their midfield and requesting Renato Sanches on loan from Bayern Munich.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, who cite German sources, the Bianconeri have requested his availability in a temporary switch.

Bayern made it clear when in negotiations with Milan that they would not sell Sanches outright, nor include an option to buy.

They are prepared to let him go out on loan in order to get more regular playing time and that may well be a problem for Juve, as the Portugal international would not be first choice.

Another alternative Juventus are looking towards is Andre Gomes, who has been pushed to the edges of the Barcelona squad.
