Lille president denies contact with PSG for Sanches

Renato Sanches has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, but Lille’s president has stated there has been no contact.

Lille president Oliver Letang has denied there have been discussions with Paris Saint-Germain regarding Renato Sanches.

There are report heavily linking the 24-year-old Portugal international with a move to the French capital.

As he will be entering the final 12 months of his contract.

Reports have suggested Sanches is closing in on a move to Paris, who are expected to appoint former Lille boss Christophe Galtier as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor, with it suggested the midfielder had arrived in the city on Thursday to finalise a transfer.

However, those claims have been cold-shoulder by Letang as he offers an olive branch to other interest clubs – confirming one offer from an unnamed side.

Milan appeared favourite for Sanches’ signature for a long time.

They are some interest in his Lille team-mate Sven Botman, too, but saw the defender instead head for Newcastle United.

Letang told a press conference after Lille appointed Paulo Fonseca as their new coach:

“There are players who can leave and there are players who can’t leave.

“Without naming them today, we want to keep a competitive team.

“Renato is one of the boys who still has a year left on his contract. Renato could or should have gone to Barcelona last summer before he injured his meniscus.

“As of today, we’ve had no contact with PSG. We have seen lots of rumours about offers, but we’ve received no offer from PSG.

“Other clubs want him, especially one great European club, who have already made us offers. That’s the situation with Renato.”

I think Renato Sanches, should leave Lille as many players from his club are leaving Lille.

And Lille must capitalise before his contract runs out.
