A transfer out of Munich might be best for the Portuguese midfielder, but Bayern and PSG can’t come to terms...at least not yet.

Per a report by RMC Sport, Paris Saint-Germain has held talks with Bayern Munich regarding midfielder Renato Sanches.

According to information from RMC Sport, Paris Saint-Germain has started talks with Bayern Munich to recruit Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches.

According to our information, PSG has focused on a new player in the last 48. Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches is admired by Antero Henrique, who tried to bring him (to Paris) last summer. The Portuguese international is linked with Bayern Munich until June 2021. Discussions are currently taking place between PSG and Bayern Munich.

Sky Germany followed that report by stating that there is a financial roadblock for Bayern and PSG in terms of getting a deal done.

Like last summer, the Portuguese was on the Parisians’ list. According to Sky’s information, PSG sporting director Antero Henrique spoke with Hasan Salihamidzic over the past few days about a potential transfer this winter. But two clubs’ ideas were about 15 million euros apart. Too much for PSG! Paris will not meet the asking price of the record champion; a transfer in January is now off the table.

Sanches has been mired on the bench for Niko Kovac but would likely find more time on the pitch in Paris, especially given the tumultuous situation with PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who was recently banished from the team camp.

PSG has also been linked to Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl, but it appears that BVB will not let the 23-year-old midfielder leave. Given PSG’s continued interest in Sanches, it is conceivable that even if a deal does not happen in this window, a summer move could be in the works.
