The 19-year-old Portugal international joined Bayern Munich for £30 million back in May with the player revealing that it was the German giants’ desire that proved the determining factor.
Speaking to The Sun, Sanches claimed: “I had a good feeling about it right away when I heard about Bayern Munich’s interest.
Ultimately, there was managerial uncertainty at Manchester United around the time Sanches secured his move to the Allianz Arena with Louis van Gaal succeeded by Jose Mourinho 17 days after the transfer was completed.
Still a teenager of course, Sanches is already a Euro 2016 winner having been a part of Fernando Santos’ squad that were successful in France over the summer.
As for his early days at Bayern, Sanches has started two of four games under Carlo Ancelotti in the Bundesliga thus far.
