After several weeks of negotiations with Lille, Paris Saint-Germain formalized the recruitment of Renato Sanches on Thursday. The Portuguese midfielder signed up for five years against a check for 13 million euros.
Renato Sanches is from Paris.
The soap opera for many weeks. It ended on Thursday. Just hours after the announcement of Christophe Galtier, Paris Saint-Germain has (finally) formalized the recruitment of Renato Sanches.
A transfer of €13 million
On leaving Lille, which he joined in 2019, the Portuguese midfielder has long been close to AC Milan. But the joint arrivals of Luis Campos and the Marseille coach on the banks of the Seine prompted him to change his plans to reach the capital. An ease by the presence of his two mentors but also and above all by his contractual situation, since he was free next June.
While they only offered 10 million euros so far, the Parisian leaders finally agreed to add 3 million euros in bonuses claimed by their LOSC counterparts. A financial agreement has been found in recent hours which has allowed the 2016 European champion to undergo his medical examination this Thursday and to sign a five-year lease in the crowd, i.e. until June 2027, with the winner of the last championship.
Another chance for Sanches
A very nice move for PSG, who decided to clean up their midfield after notably recruiting Vitinha Porto. By recovering Sanches, Paris gets their hands on a still young player (24 years old) who has still not given the full measure of his talent despite already having very significant experience. A technical, powerful and hard-hitting profile in the middle that has been sorely lacking in recent years.
For the player, this is a particularly attractive second chance. Left too early for Bayern Munich, only 18 years old, Sanches has once again the opportunity to shine with a thousand lights in one of the most ambitious clubs in the world. To do this, he will have to put behind him the numerous muscular injuries that have harmed him during his three seasons in the North. In any case, the PSG offers a sacred player to energize its environment.
