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.

Sanches is known for his pace and agility on the field of play. He has a bit of the aggressive nature that and always ready to jump into a challenge and win back the ball. They young player also has a lot of stamina. Despite being young the player has made a name for himself. He showed it while playing for Benfica in Europe and has already broken records at the Euro 2016 where he has become the youngest player to represent his country at such a tournament.

Sanches joins the host of Bayern players with confidence that bothers on arrogance. That self-assuredness ensures the team wins matches and the youngster just fits the profile. Many Bayern fans are already excited and await the touch of the player in the coming season.
