Mercato PSG: the future of Renato Sanches is settled


By: Manu Tournoux

Last summer, after a rather mediocre season and without much playing time at Paris Saint-Germain, Renato Sanches made the bet to relaunch with Roma. In a new championship, in a country unknown to him, the Portuguese has not really managed to get his career back on track. Still handicapped by physical problems – he injured his ankle at the beginning of January – for example he only played 4 minutes in 2024!

But, even when he was healthy, José Mourinho did not really count on him and he had to make do with appearances. In total, he only played 10 matches in all competitions, with only 3 starts. A difficult situation for the player, for Roma obviously, but also for Paris Saint-Germain, who could hope for a return to form from the Lusitanian to possibly make a big sale this summer.

It costs Roma a lot of money

“What I wanted was to be on the pitch, there’s nothing I love more. Unfortunately, I was not satisfied, because of the numerous injuries. The person who feels the most frustrated and at the same time the most impatient to play again is me. I believe that everything will pass and that better times will come”, he explained in January. And, bad news for PSG, Roma have made a decision.

La Louve will not keep the player, and this compulsory purchase option of 15 million euros, depending mainly on the number of matches played by the midfielder, will not a priori be activated given his meager playing time. way, it is out of the question to negotiate with Paris to try to keep it, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport. The Portuguese is very expensive for the club, which covers a large part of his salary. The Italian team is currently paying 6.7 million euros (salary + taxes) for its services; far too much considering what she gets in return. Impossible to consider paying even more, and putting an additional check on the table to buy it permanently. He will therefore return to Paris this summer, and it is another complicated file for Luis Campos to manage.
