Man United set to seal €80m deal for star as Barcelona are unable to compete financially


Mundo Deportivo still hasn’t given upon the fact that there is some chance that Renato Sanches may end up at Barcelona in the summer. Although Barcelona and Benfica share a good relationship, Man United’s financial power is starting to show as Sanches’ price has been inflated many times and now Barcelona simply can’t afford the player. Like the Martial deal from last year, Manchester United are buying raw unproven players at unimaginably high rates and not many clubs across Europe can compete with them. The Martial deal represented a huge bargain at that time but it seems to have worked in favour of Manchester United as the player is their leading goalscorer this season.

Jorge Mendes, Jose Mourinho’s agent is believed to have brokered this deal between Benfica’s president and Ed Woodward. It is still not sure whether either of Van Gaal or Mourinho have been asked about their opinion about Renato Sanches. It is surprising that Manchester United have completely handed over player transfers to Ed Woodward who is basically an investment banker and has no football background. Woodward’s track record so far in transfers is very poor and although he has managed to sign a few star names, none of them have made any considerable impact on the pitch.
