Ancelotti working to make Sanches an AC Milan fan

Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti is trying
to persuade Renato Sanches to support AC Milan,
hinting the Portugal midfielder could join the Serie
A side.
Sanches is reportedly the latest target for the big-
spending Italians, who have signed a raft of players
including Italy centre-back Leonardo Bonucci from
Juventus and Sanches' international team-mate
Andre Silva in a busy transfer window.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has
claimed Sanches could be out of Milan's price
range, although a loan to San Siro has also been
suggested.
Speaking ahead of Bayern's International
Champions Cup clash with Milan in Shenzhen on
Saturday, Ancelotti hinted Sanches could yet move
to the the Italian's former club.
"Milan have had a great transfer window so far,"
Ancelotti told reporters on Friday. "They've bought
a lot of players and the impact of the new owners
[Li Yonghong's Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux]
has been important.
"I hope they have a great season, I have a good
relationship with [Milan head coach Vincenzo]
Montella and I think he did a good job last season.
They have a better team this year and they'll fight
for the Scudetto, I wish them the best.
Regarding my time, Milan has changed a lot, but I
have good memories.


"I'm always happy to face Milan because I'm still a
Milan fan and I push my players to become Milan
fans.
"Sanches? Right now he's working for us, but yes
I'm working to make him a Milan fan."

But the Bayern boss indicated there will be no
immediate announcement regarding a potential
move for the 19-year-old midfielder.
"There's nothing new on his future," Ancelotti
added.
