Renato Sanches completed his move to Lille from Bayern Munich for a fee of £22.6m.
The Portuguese midfielder joined the German giants from Benfica three years ago, after Bayern Munich beat Manchester United to his signature.
Big things were expected from Renato Sanches, who starred for Portugal whom would become the European Champions in 2016. Before winning his major tournament in his career, Renato would then move onto picking up the prestigious Golden Boy award later on in the same year.
After the deal for Renato’s services were agreed, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented on the players departure “Renato Sanches asked us to agree to the transfer because he wanted to join a club where he can play a regular basis. Unfortunately we were unable to guarantee that at FC Bayern. Match practise is also important to him because he wants a place in the Portugal squad for Euro 2020. I would like to thank Renato for his performances, and on behalf of FC Bayern I wish him all the best for the future.”.
The box to box midfielder has put pen to paper on a five year deal with Lille.
