Bayern Munich have revealed that Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has asked about signing Renato Sanches.
AC Milan seemed to be close to landing the teenager, who has struggled in Germany since his £30million move from Benfica last summer.
Conte asked about Renato Sanches after the Blues lost 3-2 to Bayern in a pre-season friendly in Singapore.
The 19-year-old’s performance was impressive enough for Conte to check out his availability.
Bayern chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has confirmed they will allow the Portuguese international to go out on loan, with Stamford Bridge now an option.
There are at least 10 teams after Sanches.
“Conte asked for some information about him after Tuesday’s game because he knows he can make the difference on the pitch,” Rummenigge told Gazzetta dello Sport.
