Barcelona are keen to sign Lille midfielder Renato Sanches this summer despite the club’s financial turmoil, according to reports.
Renato Sanches, 23, caught the eye at Euro 2020 with Portugal with a string of fine displays.
He is in-demand, with Barcelona now the latest team to have been linked with him.
Diario AS claim a potential loan deal at the Nou Camp may be an option because of the off-field woes.
But they must first significantly slash down their wage bill.
Renato Sanches back on top
Renato Sanches has been able to return back to his best in France after leaving the Bundesliga in 2019 low on confidence.
His disastrous loan spell with Swansea in the 2017-18 campaign somewhat marred his early development.
But Sanches went on to win Ligue 1 with Lille last year.
Combined with his dominating displays with Portugal this summer, Sanches – who won the European Golden Boy award in 2017 – has no shortage of interest again.
Both Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with a move for Sanches in recent weeks.
Lille appear likely to sell provided their valuation is met.
