Renato Sanches is apparently close to being sold to Lille.

According to The Daily Mail, Sanches is close to being sold to French Ligue 1 side Lille.

The deal is rumored to be worth approximately 25 million Euros.

Bayern signed him from Benfica for a fee of 35 million Euros, in 2016.

While the financial loss is not something Bayern are used to doing on a player. The club has had enough of the player’s poor performances and latest outburst.

Here at Ronaldo.com, we brought you the talk of Sanches being on a collision course with Bayern chief Hasan Salihamidzic.

It appears this has brought his time in Bavaria to an end.

When he joined Bayern, the Portuguese player was deemed one of the hottest properties in football.

Bayern Munich fought off interest from several of Europe elite clubs to secure the player’s services.

Things have not quite worked out for Sanches.

His first season saw make only 25 appearances for Bayern across all competitions. With no goals and no assists, it was deemed disappointing, to say the least.

The second season saw him loaned out to premier League minnows Swansea City. He did not fare much better there. Making 16 appearances and contributing only 1 assist.

This preseason saw him granted a rare opportunity to showcase his talents. Niko Kovac has included him three games already this new season.

This was perhaps too little too late for Sanches, and he publicly criticised the club for his treatment and lack of opportunity.

Lille area club with money to spend. They cashed in on Nicholas Pepe in his 80 million Euro deal to Arsenal.

The French club feels that at 22 years of age, Sanches still has a future ahead of him, and could prove to be a bargain.

It is believed, the player is on route to France. He will complete a medical possibly as soon as today. The contract he has been offered is apparently a five-year deal.
