Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches is close to complete a move to Swansea on a season-long loan deal, according to reports. The news was first revealed by Wales Online earlier this week by transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has confirmed the deal this afternoon.

The Portugal international also attracted interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, however, Bayern Munich did not wish to include an option-to-buy in the deal with the Premier League trio. Though, reports have emerged that an option-to-buy fee for €30million HAS been included in Sanches’ loan deal to Swansea, which, given the 20-year-old lives up to expectation in Wales, would likely to be activated by Paul Clement.

The former Benfica midfielder became the most expensive player to leave the top-flight division in Portugal in 2016 after securing a £30m move to the Bundesliga in 2016. Now, he faces the prospect of playing under Paul Clement and Claude Makélélé at Swansea in an attempt to rejuvenate his career, despite only recently turning 20.

Carlo Ancelotti may have preferred to allow Sanches to depart for Swansea given his relationship with Clement. The pair have worked together at both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid before Clement left in a bid to keep the Swans in the Premier League, which he did expertly.

Now, the 45-year-old is set to launch Swansea into a mid-table club, perhaps with a chance of pushing for European football in the coming years. The addition of Sanches, along with Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, will give the club some much-needed excitement during the early stages of the Premier League season following the departure of Gylfi Sigurðsson and the likelihood of Fernando Llorente joining Chelsea.
