Renato Sanches, who joined PSG in the summer of 2022, has struggled to find his place in the Parisian squad and has been loaned out to AS Roma. However, on the other side of the Alps, the Portuguese midfielder also faces difficulties convincing his new team. This challenging situation could lead him to seek a new destination once again.

Since the start of the season and his loan to AS Roma, Renato Sanches has played only 227 minutes in 9 games across all competitions. This lackluster performance midway through the season complicates his integration under the management of Jose Mourinho. Despite his talent, the scenario repeats itself as the Paris Saint-Germain loanee is once again plagued by a series of injuries, including muscle fatigue, thigh tear, and ankle injury.

The 2016 Golden Boy winner struggles to find the necessary competitive rhythm for the top level. This predicament prompts AS Roma to consider options for his future. However, as of now, the Roman leaders have not informed their Parisian counterparts about the possibility of terminating the loan.

In this context, Renato Sanches could take a new turn in his career. If his loan does not conclude at AS Roma and his future under Luis Enrique remains uncertain, the Portuguese midfielder might find a new opportunity in Turkey, at Besiktas.

This information, initially provided by L'Equipe, is now confirmed by Le Parisien, citing the interest of the Istanbul-based club in replacing Jean Onana, who is rumored to be heading to Olympique de Marseille. It could be a chance for Renato Sanches to reunite with Fernando Santos, his coach during Portugal's Euro 2016 victory. Besides this option, Olympiakos is also reportedly interested in acquiring the services of the midfielder linked to PSG until 2027.
