It’s not that common for a club’s CEO to publicly… announce how much his club are expecting to make from a transfer, let alone talk about an interested party’s willingness to pay up.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge did both in two sentences. First, he said he doesn’t feel Milan are ready to pay as much as needed for Renato Sanches, and then he said exactly how much the Bavarians would like to make if they sold the Portugal international.
If a club are interested in a Bayern player, they must be ready to deal with significant economic figures and I don’t feel that Milan are ready to meet our demands. We’ll say that it wouldn’t be bad if a €48m offer came in for him
the Bayern CEO told Tuttomercatoweb, after confirming that the Italian club are indeed interested in signing the 19-year-old, who just spent a miserable season at the German champions.
I can confirm Milan’s interest, but talks didn’t progress last week
As for why Sanches is on the market, Bayern’s CEO pointed out the self-evident.
He won’t get enough minutes at Bayern, so we’re willing to negotiate a loan deal and maybe beyond that. I’m not the coach, but I think Renato needs regular football
