Manchester United look set to miss out on Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches.

The Portuguese ace has been linked with a move to Old Trafford to hook up with compatriot Jose Mourinho, who confirmed yesterday that he was in the market for a midfielder.

He was heralded as a future star after his performances at Euro 2016 and Bayern snapped him up for £27.5million - however he has failed to make an impact in Germany and is free to leave.

However, according to L'Equipe, he won't be heading to Manchester; instead the 19-year-old is set to join Italian giants AC Milan.

They say he will sign a four-year contract at the San Siro for around £35million as Milan continue their huge summer of spending.
