Paris Saint-Germain reach ‘full agreement’ over £13m transfer of Renato Sanches from Lille with AC Milan missing out
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have reached agreement with Lille over a deal to sign Renato Sanches, according to reports.
The Portuguese midfielder is set to move to the Ligue 1 champions in a transfer worth £13million.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that a medical is scheduled for the player in Paris and that personal terms have been agreed.
PSG were desperate to sign Sanches, 24, as he worked under new manager Christophe Galtier and director of football Luis Campos at Lille.
During his time at the club they won the Ligue 1 title in the 2020/21 season.
He played 90 times for Lille across the three seasons he spent there scoring six goals having made the move from Bayern Munich.
The likes of AC Milan and Arsenal were also interested in Sanches but the chance to stay in France and team-up with Galtier again was too tempting.
Sanches’ move to a club with ambitions of winning the Champions League shows a great turn around in his career as at one stage he was deemed a failure after spells at Bayern and Swansea didn’t go well.
Him joining the Parisians could trigger a mass exodus of midfielders as the new gaffer looks to re-build the squad this summer following the dismissal of predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.
Players such as Idrissa Gana Gueye, Georgino Wijnaldum and Julian Draxler could all leave PSG.

Gueye has been linked with a return to Everton.
Meanwhile, Wijnaldum is reportedly close to sealing a loan move to Roma.
PSG could be set to do more transfer business in the next few weeks as they eye a move for Leicester’s Wesley Fofana.
