Renato Sanches eyeing possible return to Portugal after unsuccessful Roma loan

Andy Mattioli

The future of Renato Sanches is bound to unravel away from Roma.

The Giallorossi will not activate the buy option included in his loan from Paris Saint-Germain and thus the midfielder will soon conclude his brief and unsuccessful spell in the Italian capital.

Sanches’ agent, Jorge Mendes, is already at work to find him a new destination and now the chances of seeing him back in Portugal are said to have increased.

In fact, O Jogo reports that Mendes has held talks with Benfica and the Portuguese giants are keen on giving Sanches a fresh start in his home country.

Once again, however, Sanches is expected to join Benfica on loan as the club remain wary of his unstable physical condition.
