In search of a new recruit to complete their midfield for the long season ahead, Paris Saint-Germain have thrown their development on Renato Sanches.
In negotiations with LOSC for several weeks now, the club from the French capital has finally managed to finalize the arrival of Renato Sanches. Indeed, this Thursday, the transfer of the Portuguese international was formalized by PSG. Arrived as part of a 13 million euro deal, the former Bayern Munich midfielder signed up until 2027 with Paris. But to play a central or secondary role in the workforce of Christophe Galtier? Nobody knows… If the arrival of the 24-year-old player is a real plus, with a more physical and more powerful profile than the other midfielders in place at PSG, nothing says that Renato Sanches will be a full-fledged starter in the 3 -4-3 from Galtier. Pierre Bouby even thinks the opposite.
“Renato Sanches arrives in a complementary role”
Should Renato Sanches be a starter at PSG?

“Should Renato Sanches be a starter at PSG? Nope ! Quite simply because Marco Verratti has a status in the group. Christophe Galtier arrived with the idea of playing with a system only with two midfielders. And next to Verratti, I find that Vitinha has made everyone agree since the start of the summer preparation. He’s a hard-hitting player. He is able to do what Verratti is doing while collecting more balls. So I think Renato Sanches comes in a complementary role when Verratti is absent, since he only plays half of the matches… Renato Sanches will be able to bring more intensity, in duels and in physical impact”, explained the columnist of L’Equipe du Soir, who knows that Renato Sanches is not the most regular and reliable player either. Suffice to say that he will have to be at his best to hope to play behind Messi, Neymar and Mbappé.
