Chelsea fans are hoping to see Renato Sanches in a Blues shirt next season

As reported by Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea are interested in adding midfielder Renato Sanches to their squad this summer, although Bayern Munich are only interested in sending him out on loan.

The report states that because the German club paid a large fee for him last season and still see him as having a long-term future at the club, they’d prefer to see him leave on a temporary basis.

While that’s not traditionally the kind of deal Chelsea have done in recent seasons, it’s still one that could make sense if Antonio Conte feels like he needs more depth in a squad that will be competing in three domestic competitions and the UEFA Champions League next season.

With Nemanja Matic’s future far from certain at Stamford Bridge, it’d make sense to bring in a bright young talent alongside the established stars at the club and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko.

It’s certainly a potential deal that has been exciting Blues fans and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
