Renato Sanches requests Bayern exit

Juventus, Milan, Chelsea and Liverpool target Renato Sanches “asked to be left out” of the Bayern Munich squad this weekend.

The midfielder only arrived a year ago from Benfica for €35m plus substantial bonuses, but struggled for playing time.

He is not included in Carlo Ancelotti’s side for this weekend and Bayern director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed a move is on the cards.

“It was Sanches who asked the Coach to be left out of the squad,” Salihamidzic told Sky Sport Deutschland.

The 20-year-old wants to sort out his future as soon as possible, with Thursday’s transfer deadline fast approaching.

Juve are open to taking Sanches on a dry loan, but Milan wanted an option to buy.

Chelsea and Liverpool have also been linked with a swoop for Renato Sanches.
