MANCHESTER UNITED are plotting a move for Bayern Munich star Renato Sanches, it has been claimed.

Sanches, 19, only joined Bayern last summer, arriving for around £30m from Benfica.

But the midfielder went on to endure a disappointing debut campaign in Germany.

He made just 17 top flight appearances for the Bundesliga champions, only six of which came as a starter.

And, according to the Guardian, Bayern have now made him available for £40m.
