Renato Sanches wants to quit Bayern Munich: 'I'm not satisfied' with my playing time
Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches has admitted that he wants to leave the club in search for more regular first-team football.
Sanches, 19, joined Bayern last summer following an excellent European Championship with Portugal but he has struggled for playing time under Carlo Ancelotti.
Speaking after the 3-2 victory over Chelsea in pre-season, Sanches declared his desire to leave and spoke of his interest in Milan.

“I'm not satisfied. Of course, I would like to play more that's why I want to change and go to a club where I would play more.
“AC Milan is an interesting option. If the opportunity emerges and the clubs can agree, I would like to know.
“I'm now with Bayern but when we go back to Munich from Asia, we will sit together and hopefully find a solution.
“I'm young, I want and I have to play a lot. I think the chance to do so is greater in Milan than in Munich.”
Sanches’ comments came after Ancelotti spoke pre-match admitting that Sanches’ departure was a “a possibility.”
