Roma are getting closer to Renato Sanches despite some hurdles. They don’t plan to pivot toward different targets anytime soon. José Mourinho and Tiago Pinto are in agreement about the fit and value of the player. Plus, they believe PSG will eventually accept their proposal, Tuttomercatoweb relays.
The Giallorossi are looking to replicate the same deal as Georginio Wijnaldum. They want the Portuguese on loan with option to buy. The Ligue 1 club would have to contribute to his wages for the deal to go through. There might be an acceleration in the next couple of days. The ex-Lille star has signed off on the move after an initial hesitation.
While Roma have been attached to a few alternatives to Renato Sanches, the only one they truly like is Scott McTominay. He injured his knee during a recent friendly, but the problem doesn’t seem to be severe.
The Scottish player is likely to be on his way out once Manchester United bring in reinforcements at his same position. Coach Erik Ten Hag plans to lean on different contributors.
Our Take on Roma and Renato Sanches
Despite their lack of budget, the Giallorossi have zeroed in on a few men rather than casting a wide net and seeing what’s available at affordable prices. If no other suitor emerges shortly, PSG could indeed be more lenient.
