Renato Sanches disclosed why he failed to join Barcelona

Renato Sanches, a Lille midfielder has revealed that he was prevented from joining Barcelona last year due to an injury. In France playing a key role in Lille’s Ligue 1 title victory over Paris Saint-Germain, last season the Portugal international has resurrected his career.

Having recently explored possible moves to Arsenal and AC Milan, Renato Sanches has been attracting Europe’s biggest names again and disclosed in an interview with L’Equipe that he was scheduled to join Barcelona in the summer of 2021. However, due to a hamstring ailment that necessitated surgery, he was forced to not join the Spanish football club.

Sanches said, “Many clubs were interested this summer, when I sustained the injury, I understood that I would have stayed at Lille. It was all done with Barcelona, I think it all collapsed because of the injury.”

When Sanches was 19 years old he discussed his move to Bayern Munich. He stated that he wasn’t ready for such a significant jump in his career, but that he was better prepared now to handle the pressures of playing for a top team.

“When I arrived at Bayern Munich, I was not ready to play in such a club,” he added. “I was very young. And when I got ready, the opportunity to play with this team never came. Today I feel ready. I understand football better, I have more experience, I know what to do to play in this kind of club and that changes everything.”  Sanches’ Lille has struggled in their quest to retain the French title, sitting in 12th place and 20 points behind leaders PSG.
