Swansea City have pulled off one of the signings of the season!

Swansea City have pulled off one of the signings of the season with the arrival of 20 year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches on a season-long loan.

Swansea head coach Paul Clement has used his contacts – having worked at the German club – to pull off such a huge signing, as bayern were keen for the youngster to join a club where he’ll be playing regular first team football at a high level.

Liverpool were also competing for his signing, but the Swans won the race in the end – likely because they could guarantee first team football, as Sanches will of course be one of the first names on the team sheet for us.

Munich chairman ,a href=’’ target=’blank’>Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed that there is no option to buy the player after the loan ends next Summer, unlike what some reports speculated yesterday.

‘We’re delighted we’ve been able to conclude the load deal with Swansea City. Our goal was for Renato to gain regular match practice at club level in a strong league such as the Premier League,’

‘We remain convinced he has the potential to become an important player for FC Bayern in the future. For this reason the agreement states that the player will return to FC Bayern on 1 July 2018 with no option to make the transfer permanent.’
