Bayern Munich flop Renato Sanches wanted by Turkish giants Fenerbahce

The 21-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Swansea, could be set for another temporary move away with Fenerbahce

Renato Sanches could be set for another loan move away from Bayern Munich, with Fenerbahce interested in signing the midfielder, according to reports in Turkey.

The 21-year-old has endured a difficult couple of years in the game.

But Turkish newspaper Fanatik say that Fenerbahce want the midfielder on loan – and are prepared to pay in excess of £2million to land their man.

Bayern splashed out £31m on Sanches to sign him from Benfica two years ago after he helped Portugal win Euro 2016.

But after failing to make an impact in his first season in Germany, he was then loaned out to Swansea City for a staggering £7m.

However, his fortunes didn’t improve in Wales – as he was sent back to Bayern after making just 12 appearances for the relegated Swans.

Sanches now has a battle to revive his career, and the Turkish giants are confident they can get the talented midfielder back on the track to stardom.

However, they could face a battle to sign Sanches – with Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisting in May that new coach Niko Kovac would work with the youngster, who is under contract until 2021.

“Renato is coming back,” Rummenigge said at the time. “Niko Kovac will try to restore him to former strengths — it’s an exciting task.”

A season-long loan move back to his former side Benfica broke down earlier this summer as the Portuguese giants were reluctant to pay a loan fee.
