The Former Chelsea manager has been heavily linked with a move to Man United and has already told friends it’s a ‘done deal‘, thoughts which were backed up by Harry Redknapp who said been told a similar thing.
Sanches has only scored two goals in 17 appearances this season but played a vital role in Rui Vitoria’s climb up to second in the Primeira Liga.
Last night, Man United fans got to watch him in Champions League action against Zenit St.Petersburg and they were quick to notice just how accomplished he looked for an 18-year-old midfielder. Even when he squared up to Hulk, he more than held his own.
Portuguese clubs are notoriously good at getting excellent transfer fees for their players and in recent years Benfica has sold the likes of Angel di Maria and David Luiz, so they do have a good track record of selling players who go on to be very successful at the top level.
The general consensus is that Sanches will fall into that category and seeing as United just hired a new scout in Henny de Regt, maybe he’s already busy on the job.
