AC Milan interested in Bayern Munich's Renato Sanches - CEO Rummenigge

The 19-year-old, who impressed for Portugal during the European Championships last summer, joined the Bundesliga side for €35m shortly after the tournament ended.

But the youngster struggled to make an impression under Carlo Ancelotti, who preferred the likes of Xabi Alonso and Arturo Vidal.

Staying at Bayern, though, would also mean a battle to make it into the first team.

The rossoneri want to sign Renato Sanches on a two-year loan with option to buy but Bayern Munich are not willing to sell their starlet on loan, at least for the moment.

With his contract expiring at the end of next season, Sanchez has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer with Bayern Munich believed to be keen on him.

According to the Record newspaper in Portugal, Milan want to take the teenager on a two-year loan deal with an option to make the deal permanent for a fee of €47 million.

Speaking at Munich airport prior to departing for the clubs pre-season tour of Asia, Rummenigge said: "I can confirm AC Milan are interested in Renato Sanches".

"But we did not get any further".

'They reported midweek. And if you borrow a player from Bayern, that also has economic effects. "At €48m (£42m) I would not be dissatisfied".

Backed by new Chinese owners, Milan have been busy in the transfer market, signing Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci as well as Andre Silva, Lucas Biglia, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Hakan Calhanoglu, Andrea Conti, Franck Kessie and Fabio Borini.

AC Milan are likely to face opposition from a number of Premier League clubs, with both Chelsea and Manchester United likely to be alerted by Rummenigge's comments.
