Renato Sanches: Joined Bayern Munich earlier this summer

Manchester City are reportedly ready to rival Manchester United for £47million-rated Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches.

United are admirers of the teenager following his breakthrough into the Portuguese outfit’s first team this season and have regularly been linked with moves for the player.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to bring the player to Old Trafford, and with reports on Sunday suggesting confirmation of his appointment at Manchester United is imminent, suggestions that Sanches could follow are gathering pace.

However, The Sunday Times claims City, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have all also registered an interest in the teenager, which could send his price tag rocketing over the £50million mark this summer.
