The Portugal international midfielder has signed for the Bundesliga champions in a deal set to be worth up to €80 million after turning down the chance to play at Old Trafford.
New Bayern Munich signing Renato Sanches has revealed the reason why he opted to sign for the Bundesliga champions over Manchester United.
The Red Devils were reportedly keen on signing the Portugal international from Benfica and were rumoured to have had a series of offers rejected.
And Sanches has now revealed that he chose to join the Bavarians in a deal that could be worth up to €80 million because they are more likely to win silverware than the Old Trafford outfit.
“Manchester United made an offer. I think it was well known,”
the teenager told reporters at a promotional event.
“But I had other offers as well.”
“I chose Bayern Munich because it’s a greatclub. They have a 65,000 seater stadium and an atmosphere similar to Benfica. I’ll win titles.”
