Man Utd to beat Madrid to Renato?

Reports in Portugal say Real Madrid are giving up on Benfica’s Renato Sanches as Manchester United are in pole position.

AS cites Record as claiming United and Benfica have a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ over the 18-year-old, though the terms of the transfer haven’t been settled.

Bayern Munich and Juventus were also in the hunt for the midfielder who could cost €40m up front and a further €20m in variables.

Renato’s clause is said to have been increased from €30m to €80m after Madrid’s interest.
