Renato Sanches (24), Lille midfielder, posted a message that could be interpreted as relating to his future as he is courted by PSG and AC Milan.
He is PSG’s other target in midfield along with Vitinha. On Sunday, Renato Sanches (24) posted a message on his Instagram account that many perceived as a reference to his situation in the transfer market. One year from the end of his contract with Lille (2023), the Portuguese international is a long-time target of AC Milan who made him a contract offer. According to Sky Sport Italia, the two parties have even already reached an agreement.
But PSG has recently invited itself into the dance, making the situation more uncertain. For many, Sanches’ message is directly linked to this uncertainty. “Choose what’s good for your soul, not your ego,” reads a message from the former Bayern Munich player.

According to information from RMC Sport, discussions resumed between PSG and the player’s entourage this weekend. Luis Campos, new Parisian sports adviser, is on the job and for good reason: he knows very well the player he brought to Lille in 2019. The northern club is selling and hopes to obtain a return on investment after having paid 20 million euros three years ago.
The midfielder, long considered a future crack especially after a particularly successful Euro 2016, also knows very well Christophe Galtier, tipped to become the new coach of PSG. The two men worked together at Losc for two seasons until the title of French champions of the Dogues in 2021.
Renato Sanches remains on a lackluster season in the north with a meniscus injury which caused him to miss sixteen games in all competitions. According to Sky Sport, AC Milan may have lost their advantage on this file after being slow to agree with Lille on the transfer fee. “The chances of seeing Sanches in the Rossoneri shirt next season haven’t been ruled out yet, but it’s clear that if PSG have decided to ‘pass second’ for the Portuguese midfielder, for Milan it will become difficult – if not almost impossible – to be economically competitive.”
