Manchester United maintain watching brief for Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches

Manchester United are maintaining their interest in Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches.

Several reports says United had him scouted on the weekend.

They’re locked in talks with the Lisbon giants over a summer switch for the talented youngster. They’ve watched him on a regular basis this season after first making contact over a move in January.

Sanches played the full 90 minutes in Benfica’s derby clash with Sporting Lisbon on Saturday – which they won 1-0.

Talks are ongoing over a £46m move this summer for the 18-year-old.
