Chelsea are willing to accept Bayern Munich’s demands and sign Renato Sanches on loan this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is claiming that the Blues are closing in on the signature of the Portugal international on a season-long deal.

The same report says that both Chelsea and AC Milan are interested in signing Sanches this summer after he failed to impress during his first season at Bayern Munich.

The story says that Bayern are keen to keep Sanches at the club but are willing to ship him out on loan so he can benefit from regular playing time next season.

The article says Chelsea are willing to accept Bayern’s demands for the temporary deal and could conclude a deal to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the coming days.

AC Milan are said to be keen on signing Sanches but want the option to make the deal permanent next summer.

But the story says Bayern are willing only to let him move away from the Allianz Arena on a temporary deal.
