Manchester United could target Renato Sanches of Bayern Munich as the Bundesliga champions prepare to welcome Leon Goretzka from Schalke to the club.

According to Sky Germany (h/t Metro), the midfielder will arrive in Bavaria in the summer, opening the door for Sanches’ swift exit after just 12 months under manager Carlo Ancelotti. United confirmed they were interested in the Portugal international before he decided to move to the Bundesliga.

Goretzka has just a year left on his deal with the Gelsenkirchen team, making him a desirable target for Bayern.

Metro reported Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel recently admitted the club is not in talks with the player about extending his stay after interest in his signature from Arsenal.

“I think he’s made his position relatively clear, but I still can’t say more,” said Heidel. “We’ve yet to hold intensive talks.”
