Renato Sanches

Bayern Munich had apparently twice refused to let Renato Sanches leave, but he has now signed for Lille on a permanent deal.

- When does the transfer window close?

Sanches completed a medical on Friday afternoon and then put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

"Renato Sanches asked us for the transfer because he wanted to join a club where he can play continuously".

"Unfortunately, we could not guarantee him this at Bayern. It is also important for him to get match practice because he wants to earn a spot on the Portugal team for Euro 2020", Bayern CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement. "I would like to thank Renato for his performances, and on behalf of FC Bayern I wish him all the best for the future".

Lille are preparing for their first season back in the Champions League since 2014 after finishing an impressive second last term, inspired by Arsenal new-boy Nicolas Pepe.

"My wish was to join the LOSC so I'm really happy to be here. I was very well received and I hope everything will be fine for me", he told the French club's website.

"I have been in contact with [sporting director] Luis Campos for a long time already". I do not know all my other team-mates well, but I can not wait to meet them all.
