Bayern Munich will look to offload Renato Sanches this summer after just one season in Bavaria following his £35m from Benfica last year.
The 19-year-old midfielder arrived with a glowing reputation following his exploits with Portugal at Euro 2016, but in his 25 appearances for the German champions, he failed to notch a goal or an assist.
Now, Carlo Ancelotti is keen to sell the teenage prospect and is optimistically seeking to make a profit, despite his awful debut campaign.

AC Milan and Manchester United are the two most-interested parties, with the latter missing out on his signature last summer.
However, the price tag set by Die Roten could put off Jose Mourinho's side and may leave Milan - who have embarked on a huge spending spree - as the frontrunners to pry him away from his Allianz Arena nightmare.
Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that Sanches will struggle for minutes next season if he stays, saying to TMW:
“I’m not the coach but I think Renato needs continuity. I can confirm the interest of AC Milan, but the deal did not go through after contacts last week.
“If a club is interesting in asking for a Bayern player they should know there are important economic figures [involved].
“I have a feeling Milan are not ready to meet our demands. Though we say it would not hurt if a proposed £42m came for him…”
