Deadline day: Wolves fans react as Renato Sanches is linked with Molineux loan

Renato Sanches is being linked with a season-long loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That was the big claim dropped last night, with just one day left in the transfer market.

Sanches has enjoyed a renaissance in his career in recent times.

The midfielder infamously struggled during a loan spell with Swansea City a few years ago.

His move to Bayern Munich just didn’t work out, but things have gone better for him since joining Lille.

Last season, he help his side win the league title, making 23 appearances in Ligue 1.

He did have some injury problems, but made key contributions for Christophe Galtier.

He then went on to impress for Portugal at Euro 2020.

The star is currently sidelined after undergoing knee surgery, and Goal reported earlier this month that he would be out for around six weeks.

So if a move comes to fruition, Wolves fans would have to wait a little before seeing him in action.

Sanches is yet another client of the Gestifute agency, headed by Jorge Mendes.

There is therefore, surely, a reasonable chance of this deal going through today.

On social media, fans have been reacting to the claims about Sanches.

It is safe to say that many people are very excited by the prospect of him coming to Molineux.
