Bayern Munich's Renato Sanches 'to join AC Milan in £35m deal'

Gab Marcotti breaks down Bayern Munich's relatively young and new squad and what the future holds for them. Inter Milan would have seen their cross-town rivals, AC Milan smash Bayern Munich a few days ago and they will hope they can do similar things in this game.

In a recent interview with "Bild", the 19-year-old also confessed that he wants more game time this season and he may have to leave the club this summer to find more playing opportunities.

"Bayern Munich is just as big a club as Real Madrid, if not even bigger", he said.

The centre midfielder only made 25 appearances in all competitions for Bayern last season and will want to ensure he spends as much time on the pitch as possible in 2017/18 to book his place in Portugal's squad for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"One midfield player would give me more options", Mourinho told the BBC.

The dreadlocked midfielder failed to earn a starting spot in Carlo Ancelotti's side in 2016/2017 and was reportedly made available for sale by Bayern Munich.

The Colombia worldwide moved to the Spanish capital after starring in the 2014 World Cup, but - despite initially impressing - fell down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu under Zinedine Zidane.

Under Ancelotti, he scored 17 goals and provided 18 assists in 46 appearances in his debut season at the Bernabeu in 2014-15, but he found his influence increasingly limited under Zinedine Zidane. "That helped me a great deal and I missed the "Mister" as a coach. He is always an important player not because he scores but because of the positions that he is able to take on the pitch".
