At a press conference Monday Carlos Ancelotti lay rest to rumours of Renato Sanches departure. Telling the press, “Renato Sanches will stay with us until the end of the transfer window”.
Sanches joined Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016 after a breakthrough season with Benfica and an amazing Euro 2016 with Portugal, who he won the tournament with. Last season he struggled to adapt to the Bundesliga making only 17 leagues appearances.
However Ancelotti still has hope for the midfielder who is still only 19. Both Chelsea and AC Milan where linked to the Portuguese midfielder.
Chelsea had looked to win the race for Sanches with reports from Spain claiming the Blues had agreed a 2 year loan for the player. After Ancelotti’s announcement, Chelsea will have to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements this summer.
