For Six Minutes with Bayern, Sanches Can not Move
Renato Sanches’s career has been hampered. In fact, he was touted as one of the most talented young players in the world of football.
Sanches name began to echo when bringing the Portugal national team won the 2016 European Cup. He was later elected to be the best young player in the tournament.
It did not take long for a club of Bayern Munich to get it. By spending 35 million euros (equivalent to Rp 558 billion), Bayern get Sanches from Benfica in the summer of 2016.
Annual season at Bayern, Sanches had trouble getting minutes playing. Had attracted a number of clubs, Sanches finally loaned to English Premier League club, Swansea City.
But at Swansea, Sanches also struggled to get a minute playing. He only appeared nine times with seven of them as a starter.
For 511 minutes on the field this season, Sanches appearance is not too good. He was unable to score goals or make assists so manager Paul Clement no longer rely on Sanches in his club’s midfield.
Sanches was at the crossroads considering he could not change clubs in January. This is due to the six minutes that occurred last summer.
At that time, Bayern competed in the German Super Cup 2017 against Borussia Dortmund. In the match that Bayern won on penalties, Sanches came on as a substitute in the 84th minute, replacing Corentin Tolisso.
In the rules, the Football Federation (FIFA) allows only one player to defend two different clubs in one season. Because it has played six minutes for Bayern is also, Sanches can not defend a new club in addition to Swansea until the end of 2017-2018 season.
If it’s like this, the only way Sanches up the ladder of his career is to try to seize a major place in the Swansea midfield. That is something he has not been able to do so that his future can be bleak.
