Bayern Munich Confirm Chelsea Interest In Starlet
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have confirmed that Chelsea have enquired about one of their players.
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that Blues boss Antonio Conte has shown interest in 19-year-old starlet Renato Sanches.
He also claimed that there are 10 clubs interested in the Portugal international, and that the club would prefer that he only leaves on loan.
"There are at least 10 teams after Sanches," Rummenigge told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Conte asked for some information about him after Tuesday's match because he knows he can make the difference on the pitch.
"(Carlo) Ancelotti was pleased with his performance against Chelsea so we can make some reasoning on him later.
"Almost certainly, we'll let him leave just on loan, we still count on him."
The £31.3 million (R531 million) signing struggled to break into the Bavarians' starting XI last season, making only 17 league appearances.
