Bayern fans are very excited at the prospects of new signing ahead of the coming season, where they hope to retain the Bundesliga and make an impact in Europe.
Bayern beat a host of other clubs to sign Renato Sanches from Benfica.
Bayern snapped up the player last month while other clubs were still weighing their bid for the player. The Guardian reported that the Red Devils were also interested in the player before the German champions completed the deal in one swoop. The Portuguese champions had placed a release clause of €35 million which Bayern met. However, the stunning thing is that the player is just 18 years old.
The Bavarians definitely saw something in the very young player to have signed him at such a price. Bleacher Report looked at the deal and tried to analyse why Bayern would have signed the youngster, especially when there were a lot of alternatives in the team already. The report pictured the player with a very huge body build. Though just 18 years old, Sanches has broad shoulders and rippling muscles. He possesses the physique of a power athlete, like someone playing in the American football league. Bayern have player with athletic bodies yet they remain very skilful. Sanches justs fit in.
