Manchester United target Renato Sanches wins Revelation of the Year award

by Ben Topliss

Rumoured Manchester United target Renato Sanches has received Association of Sports Journalists’ Liga NOS’s Revelation of the Year award.

Sanches,18, has enjoyed a superb breakthrough season with Benfica, scoring five goals in 33 appearances in all competitions for the Portuguese side this term.

Man United have reportedly scouted the midfielder on a number of occasions this season and the club are said to be ready to complete a deal for him worth £46m. Sanches picked up the Revelation of the Year award after receiving 66% of the votes:

There have been doubts over whether Sanches is worth the huge fee being touted but it is clear that he is a prodigious talent.

United have money to spend and, with the team in dire need of improvement, they should absolutely pay a premium if it means the best talent comes to Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial, too, was labelled as a ‘waste of money’ when United chose to pay an initial £36m for him in the summer but he has proven to be a revelation this term. Supporters will be looking for the same impact from Sanches if he does make the move to United.
