Sanches Set to Leave Roma. Söyüncü Is There for Replacement?

The upcoming week is set to be a pivotal one for Renato Sanches as his future hangs in the balance, following reports of a fallout with his current club Roma. Lorenzo Scalia, a renowned sports journalist from Corriere dello Sport, indicated that Besiktas are making every effort to lure the midfielder to their camp.

Negotiations between Turkish administrators and Sanches’ agent Jorge Mendes have been reported, hinting at a significant move for the player. Mendes is also known to manage the interests of Mourinho, enhancing the credibility of the claims.

Crucially, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has given the “green light to the potential operation,” hinting that they are open to terminating Sanches’ loan to Roma. Approval from the player is all that stands in the way of this signing.

Besiktas’ new coach Fernando Santos, former Portugal coach who led the national team to victory in 2016’s European Championship, has reportedly shown great interest in Sanches. However, according to Scalia, Roma is currently watching the negotiation unfolding, waiting for signals if they could save two million in wages and direct it towards Atletico Madrid’s Söyüncü.

This potential move has caught the attention of several Premier League teams as Söyüncü has previously played for Leicester. However, all eyes are now on Renato Sanches and his intentions.

Another crucial subplot surrounding PSG is their interest in Llorente. Nevertheless, it’s hard to predict an exit, especially if the Turkish defender doesn’t join from Spain. Given the absence of N’Dicka for the Africa Cup, the injury of Smalling, and Kumbulla not yet ready after a severe injury, the back row would be left too thin if an exit occurs.

Undoubtedly, football enthusiasts worldwide will be watching this space over the coming week.
