Paris Saint-Germain look set to sell Renato Sanches this summer with Newcastle United looking to capitalise on the situation.
A report by 90mins has suggested that Sanches‘ time at PSG looks set to be very brief as they’re looking to move him on after just one season.
If the name is ringing a bell it’s because Sanches has appeared in the Premier League before, joining Swansea City on loan from Bayern Munich for the 2017/18 season. His debut for the Swans came in a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle as he failed to impress.
It wasn’t the best of times for Sanches at Swansea and his career continued to falter in Germany. However he’s having a renaissance in France having rescued his reputation while playing at Lille helping them to bag the 2020/21 Ligue 1 title.
Paris Saint-Germain swooped in the summer and picked up Sanches for just £11.4million beating several English clubs to his signature. However, since he’s signed he has made only three starts and clocked up only 652 minutes in all competitions for the Parisiennes.
Aston Villa, Liverpool, Tottenham and Wolves are all said to be keen to bring Sanches, once hailed as ‘terrific‘ by former Magpie Jermaine Jenas, back to the Premier League along with Newcastle so it doesn’t seem like the Portuguese international will be short of offers.
AC Milan also still retain an interest in Sanches having failed with their double swoop for him and Sven Botman last season, the latter opting to sign for Newcastle instead.
This one could be seen as a bit of a risk. He’s clearly done well in France and it was a long time ago that he was in the Premier League with a struggling side, but has he matured and gained enough experience that he can now cut it in the English top flight?
For me this one totally depends on what kind of fee PSG ask for. If they just want to recoup their outlay, then that’s fine. It’s a relatively low fee for an experienced international, but I don’t think Newcastle should take a punt on anything over £15million given his history.
