Swansea City on verge of impressive Sanches loan deal

Swansea City expect to wrap up the impressive signing of Renato Sanches today, with the midfielder joining on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old has long been regarded as one of the best talents in European football, and showed his quality during Euro 2016 when he was named Young Player of the Tournament.

Sanches, who helped Portugal win that tournament, earned a £28million move from Benfica to Bayern Munich on the back of his performances, but has since struggled to recapture his form.

The midfielder made 25 appearances in all competitions for the German giants last season, but has since been linked with a number of clubs including Liverpool who asked about him earlier this summer.

But it appears as though Sanches will head to Swansea where he will be reunited with manager Paul Clement, the former Bayern assistant who worked with the player last term.

The Premier League side are set to pay £2million for the services of the youngster on a season-long loan deal, although there is no suggestion there will also be an option to make the deal permanent.

Meanwhile, Fernando Llorente looks poised to leave the Liberty Stadium for either Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur, whilst Wilfried Bony could rejoin the club from Manchester City.
