PSG's attempts of offloading players continue, with Renato Sanches now being the focus of their departures and the one with the clearest path away from Paris.

After an injury-plagued and underwhelming season in Paris, the club is keen on parting ways with the Portuguese midfielder, who holds a contract until June 2027 but has attracted some clubs from around Europe.

Several European clubs have shown interest in the 2016 Golden Boy winner, and Roma has emerged as a prominent suitor.

Roma has been actively trying to lure Sanches since the beginning of July, proposing a loan deal with an option to buy instead of an outright transfer. Despite ongoing negotiations and positive signals from both parties, PSG's management would prefer a permanent departure for Sanches rather than a loan arrangement.

French journalist Fabrice Hawkins confirms this stance, indicating that "talks between PSG and Roma are underway." The Parisian club values Sanches "at around €20m," but Roma considers this figure "too high" and seeks to negotiate "a lower price" for the transfer of the Portugal international.
