Man United agree £50m deal to sign star youngster – report
Manchester United have agreed a big-money deal to sign Renato Sanches from Benfica, according to reports
Manchester United have agreed a €65m (£50m) deal to sign Renato Sanches from Benfica, according to reports in the Portuguese media.
The Red Devils have been linked with a number of transfer deals in recent weeks as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his squad at Old Trafford.
Now, Diario Noticias is claiming that United have agreed a big-money deal to bring the 18-year-old to the Premier League club in the summer.
United have long been linked with a move for Sanches and are understood to have scouted the midfielder on numerous occasions this season.
And it appears that the Red Devils are closing in on a move to bring the teenager to England.
Sanches is understood to have a £61.4m release clause in his contract with Benfica but it appears that he could be allowed to leave for significantly less than that figure.
United are currently fifth in the Premier League table heading into their home clash with Southampton on Saturday.
