Swansea City have completed the signing of Renato Sanches on loan from Bayern Munich for the rest of the season.
The 20-year-old midfielder will reunite with Swansea head coach Paul Clement, who worked with the Portugal international during his six-month stint as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at the Allianz Arena last season.
Sanches joined Bayern Munich last season from Benfica for £27.5million after impressing in Portugal’s successful Euro 2016 campaign, in which he was named best young player of the tournament and was also the recipient of the journalist-nominated Golden Boy award.
He made 26 appearances for the German giants last season, helping them lift the Bundesliga title.
Sanches is Swansea’s ninth summer signing and his arrival further bolsters Clement’s options in midfield, which have been boosted by the recent signing of Sam Clucas from Hull City.
Welcome to @SwansOfficial, Renato Sanches… 🤝🙌
