Roma are in talks with PSG to terminate the loan spell of Renato Sanches early. His stay has been hampered by continuous thigh injuries. He has made just five appearances, scoring once, for a total of 228 minutes. On one occasion, he was hooked by José Mourinho after a quarter-hour because he hadn’t subbed in with the right intensity.
Per Sky, the Giallorossi have made up their mind and are seeking a way out. They are splitting his sizeable wages with the Ligue 1 powerhouse. Therefore, his departure will help open up much-needed cap space for an addition.
Renato Sanches has deleted any Roma reference from his profiles and is questionable for the Juventus clash. Mourinho pumped the brakes in his pre-game presser.
“I have no information concerning his departure, not from him, his agents, which are the same as mine, or director Tiago Pinto. He’s going through a complicated situation, which affects me and the squad in general too. He surely won’t play, and we’ll decide whether he’ll be with us at all later today.”
Our Take on Roma and Renato Sanches
His early exit would be logical since they don’t have money to waste on somebody who’s not contributing. In that event, it’ll be interesting to see whether they’ll try to replace him, as he has basically been a non-entity, or if they’ll stand pat in the midfield. Lorenzo Pellegrini’s form is improving, and Edoardo Bove has been very dependable all season long.
