With his contract expiring at the end of next season, Sanchez has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer with Bayern Munich believed to be keen on him.

Hence, moving over to the San Siro would mean limited game time for Sanches, and it would not be the right move for a player already devoid of confidence and aiming to prove himself once more.

He helped Portugal win Euro 2016 and was named the young player of the tournament.

Staying at Bayern, though, would also mean a battle to make it into the first team. Carlo Ancelotti's side have signed Corentin Tolisso, Sebastian Rudy and James Rodriguez, making it even more hard for Sanches to get regular playing time.

Reports out of Germany on Monday report that Portuguese global midfielder Renato Sanches is set to join Milan from Bayern Munich.

Ivica Zubac , who started 11 games at center for the Lakers last season, finished with 12 points, seven rebounds and two blocks. Mike James scored 32 points for the Suns as the recently signed Euroleague combo guard knocked down 11 of 16 attempts.

Milan approached Bayern about signing Sanches on-loan, but it seems the German club would prefer a permanent deal.

"I can confirm that Milan have shown interest in Renato Sanches", Rummenigge told Bild.

The 19-year-old is expected to leave the Allianz Arena on loan this season, although the Serie A side could have the option to sign Sanches permanently for €40m in the future, according to ESPN reports. It was not just about lending.

Bayern's transfer fee for Sanches could rise to €80m if the player is named in the top three for the Ballon d'Or, or in the Federation Internationale de Football Association team of the year.

AC Milan are likely to face opposition from a number of Premier League clubs, with both Chelsea and Manchester United likely to be alerted by Rummenigge's comments.
