According to the French newspaper L’Equipe, AC Milan could offer Bayern Munich as much as €40 million for the transfer of midfielder Renato Sanches and sign the player to a four-year deal. This comes on the heels of Sanches spelling out his desire Tuesday for a change of scenery.

Sanches said he sees AC Milan as an “interesting option” following Bayern’s 3-2 win over Chelsea in the International Champions Cup. The 19-year-old said he wants more playing time.

“I’m personally dissatisfied with my first year in Munich,” said Sanches. “Of course I’d like to play more. That is why I would like to make a change as a player and go to a club that can give me more playing time.”

AC Milan has been incredibly busy this summer. Thus far, the Serie A club has signed the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Ricardo Rodriguez, Leonardo Bonucci, Mateo Musacchio, Andre Silva, Andrea Conti, and Lucas Biglia.
