Wolves Eyeing Up A Move For 20 Y/O Swansea City Flop: Where Can He Fit Into Santo’s Squad?

Wolves are reportedly keeping tabs on Bayern Munich and on-loan Swansea City midfielder, Renato Sanches. The 20-year-old is due to return to the Allianz Arena after the completion of his loan spell with the Swans.

Sanches has struck out in the Premier League this campaign and has only managed 865 minutes of playing time from his 16 appearances across all competitions. An injury to the thigh has kept him out action since the start of the year but otherwise, the Portuguese international has been quite poor for the Swans.

He was inconsistent and failed to get a general sense of the English game. It is clear that his development might need some more work in the coming season and Wolves will be able to provide that.

Sanches is managed by Jorge Mendes’ Gestfitute agency, who in turn also caters to the needs of the Wanderers board. FOSUN International relies on the expertise of Mendes to run the club and this could facilitate a lucrative path for the central midfielder.

After all, the Molineux-based outfit is known for their aggressive investment strategy and the type of young athletically built players they go after. Sanches fits that bill perfectly and is comparatively cheap at £18m.

It has been reported that Bayern plans on banking nothing short of that amount for the youngster who earlier cost them just over £30m. Even they might have given up on the prospects of Sanches, which is evident from their significantly reduced asking price.

But Wolves certainly have not which in turn could extract high dividends in the coming years. Sanches is still just 20 and has the time in front of him to develop into the star that he once promised to be.

Taking on senior team duties for your national squad at 18 years old is not a sign of a mediocre talent. Sure, he could be one of the numerous, highly promising youngsters who simply did not pan out as expected. Or he could also be in the midst of a rough patch which he will be able to overcome with a different team.

Wolves should definitely take that bet since they already have Sanches’ compatriot, Nuno Espirito Santo as the head coach. The Portuguese tactician has worked wonders with the young talent pool that has been allocated for/by him and could do the same with Sanches.
