The truths of Renato Sanches on the PSG choice

Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches has reconsidered his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain during the last summer transfer window.

The crucial presence of Galtier

Substitute under the orders of Christophe Galtier, Renato Sanches agreed to discuss his choice to take over the management of the Paris Saint Germain during the 2022 summer transfer window. For the magazine Viewsthe Portuguese midfielder explains why he favored a new challenge in France, rather than a departure outside our borders. “I chose Paris because I love France. I received 3 offers from PSG but it hadn’t happened before that. This summer I thought it was finally the right time to come. I know Christophe Galtier very well, he coached me in Lille so obviously that weighs in such a decision.

Three meager tenures

Defended by the French coach, the 25-year-old joined the club from the French capital from Lille, for the sum of 15 million euros. But since his presence in the Paris workforce, the 2016 European champion is not to his advantage. Slowed down in his progress by injuries, the ex-tenant of Bayern Munich suffered the full brunt of the competition. All competitions combined, Renato Sanches played 13 games with Paris, for 10 games and 2 goals in Ligue 1. Problem, the Lusitanian international was satisfied with three tenures. Despite his strong relationship with the Marseillais, the native of Lisbon does not benefit from any free pass.

Currently sidelined due to a contusion, the Paris Saint-Germain number 18 has missed the last two league games against Strasbourg (2-1) and Lens (1-3), as well as the 32nd final of the Coupe de France won Friday evening on the ground of Châteauroux (3-1). If he has resumed racing, Renato Sanches has yet to return to collective training. Will he return to the group for the reception next Wednesday in Angers? Answer in the next few days.
