Bayern Munich

Bayern star eyes exit door

23rd April 2019, 11:32 by Michael Holland

Renato Sanches has revealed he wants first-team football and aims to leave Bayern Munich in the summer.

The Portugal international has failed to live up to the hype and a £30million price-tag since arriving in Bavaria from Benfica in 2016, spending last season on loan at Swansea, who were then in the English Premier League.

Sanches struggled through injury and was disappointing when he did play as the Swans were relegated before he returned to the Allianz Arena.

Things have not improved under the leadership of Niko Kovac and Sanches believes a move away is the only option for the good of his career.

"Everyone knows I want to play more," Sanches revealed. "Five minutes is not enough! To play is what I love. I do my best in every training session.

"The coach knows that, my team-mates, too. I always have to be ready. I'll do my best for those five minutes. I have the self-confidence. And I'm playing well if I get the chance."
