Undoubtedly, Bayern Munich are the most competitive club in Germany, and it is evident in the number of domestic and continental trophies the club has won over the years. The German side, who sit top of the Bundesliga, remains unsatisfied with its squad and continues to look out for the best players around.
The Bavarians are not known for splashing plenty of cash to get a player, as it does not fit their working model. Despite not spending big like Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, it has managed to rub shoulders with the best of them and win titles along the way.
The Bundesliga giants also poach talented rejects from top clubs but rarely give second chances to players who failed to hit the heights at the club. It seems to be changing, as the club is looking to land a former player that didn’t shine with them.
Bayern Munich are looking to work the January transfer window. Gossip has alreadyd flying around about player movements, and Bayern Munich is in the news. It is less than two weeks to the opening of the winter transfer market, and the German giants have links with a former player of theirs.
Calciomercato claim that Portuguese Lille midfielder Renato Sanches has caught the fancy of Bayern Munich. The Bavarians are interested in bringing back the Portuguese to the Allianz Arena. Sanches will not oppose a second chance at Bayern Munich after publicly declaring his desire to leave the Ligue 1 side. Bayern Munich is not the only side linked to the midfielder. The trio of Barcelona, Liverpool and Tottenham have also registered their interest in the player.
Renato Sanches had a stint with Bayern Munich in the past that didn’t quite turn out well. He joined the Bavarians in 2016 for €35 million. He became the first Portuguese to join Bayern Munich. Bayern beat Manchester United, who were tracking the Portuguese to his signature. Sanches also became the first Portuguese to win the Golden Boy award for the best European player under 21. He won the award ahead of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.
Sanches endured three years of injuries and limited appearances at Bayern, with 53 caps. During his stay at Bayern, he won the Bundesliga twice, the German Cup and three German Super Cups.
Bayern are interested in bringing Sanches back to the Allianz Arena after moving him to Lille in 2019 for £18 million. At Lille, Sanches has made 74 appearances and won the league last season. AC Milan and Arsenal were also interested in the player whose contract at Lille runs till 2023.
