Revealed: What Renato Sanches’ transfer means for Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal

But that now appears to either have been a bargaining tool in the Mourinho deal or a complete bluff with Bayern then swooping in silently.

Bayern’s move for Sanches is reminiscent of a number of other high profile failed signings for United – Cesc Fabregas, Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcantara, Sergio Ramos – where Ed Woodward has been left with egg on his face.

And the club’s chief exec is now going to be under huge pressure to deliver this summer despite the continued uncertainty around Louis van Gaal‘s position.

Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea in December, has been out of work and on the market for six months – yet we still don’t know what’s happening.
