Chelsea are ready to accept the terms set by Bayern Munich to sign Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches.
The midfielder only moved from Benfica to Bayern last summer in a deal worth an initial €35m, and up to €45m including potential bonuses.
However, the Portuguese starlet had a difficult debut campaign at the Allianz Arena, making just 17 League appearances for the Bundesliga Champions, failing to find the back of the net.
AC Milan, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been lined with making a move for Sanches this summer, with Bayern willing to let the midfielder leave the club. Big spending Italian side AC Milan are thought to want to sign the 2016 Golden Boy winner on a permanent deal, while Bayern only want to let the 19-year-old leave on loan.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea are willing to accept the German club’s terms, by signing the player on loan with a view to sign him permanently this summer.
Chelsea are on the brink of losing Nemanja Matic to title rivals Manchester United in a deal worth £40m, and despite signing Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, Antonio Conte is still believed to be keen on adding another midfielder to his squad in order to challenge on as many fronts as possible.
Manchester United were thought to be interested after Jose Mourinho admitted last summer that he was interested in signing Sanches, but confusion surrounding United’s managerial situation last summer, saw them miss out.
However, after being on the brink of signing Matic from Chelsea, as well as confirming that Marouane Fellaini is not leaving, it looks as though United will not be making a move for the teenager.
