Man Utd Urged To Beat Arsenal For Benfica Sensation Renato Sanches
It has been reported that former Manchester United star Owen Hargreaves believes the Red Devils should seriously consider forking out £47million on Benfica starlet Renato Sanches.
The 18-year-old has been touted as one of the most exciting prospects in European football, with the Portuguese club understood to be considering offers from a host of suitors including United.
“I’m not sure 60m euros is a gamble,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.
“The release clause is ridiculous but he’s gonna be a super player no question.
“18-year-old, only played fifteen games so far but he’s got a terrific future ahead of him.
“He’s more of a box-to-box midfielder. Really good passer of the ball. Great striker of the ball from distance.”
Sanches played a full 90 minutes as Benfica drew first blood with a 1-0 win over Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Champions League Round of 16 on Tuesday night.
The talented youngster is said to be on the radar of Arsenal, Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich.
