We've just signed one of the worlds best players because we have one of the worlds best coaches. Another signing or two and top four could well be a cert. Being the first Welsh club in the CL proper will be quite a feat.

He's average.

And the rumours are his football age don't quite match up with his real age...

He's just stagnated because he went to Bayern too early. It happens. He was born right outside Lisbon for christ's sake. But who can trust black people amirite.

Stop spreading bullshit, racist rumours unless you have tangible proof. Which you, along with everyone else who spread bullshit racist rumours, do not.

Here's a good story on it, a mere google away from your prejudice: http://www.goal.com/euro2016/en/art...ly-close-to-racism/10ngidzt9l3lj1olr72udg9q4t

(And no, this never happens to white players. Ever.)

You need to be signing players like that these days to stay in the PL, let alone top 4.

Nothing to do with the colour of his skin you clown.

I can tell you for a fact it was one of the reservations United had when looking at him last summer. And apparently the evidence was stronger than an internet rumour...

Lets see how his career develops.

Bayern made their minds up very, very quickly on him.

It’s not a bad shout at all.

They are building an excellent squad going forward.

Renato Sanches has everything. A real powerhouse of the game with a point to prove, he will bully you out of possession and with Leroy Fer next to him too. What more could you want? I don’t know what a player like him is doing in Wales, but he guarantees you 15 points a season and his hard work ethic will rub off on his peers.

Abraham AND Bony up front is almost unfair. Could well be the next Yorke and Cole. Narsingh, Routledge and Ayew give them plenty of support from the wide areas. Ayew in particular, pace to burn and he juggles the ball like a Romanian circus clown, could easily get 15+ assists this season.

These players will be the difference.

Jesus christ what a dickhead you are.

Read this part again:

You have no tangible proof. Here's how it works:

He had a late birth registration at the same hospital he was born. This was in 2002. It's not a very rare occurrence, especially not in the circumstances this happened. And no, you can't go to a Lisbon hospital in 2002 with an 11-12 year old and say that he's 5 without having to prove it. At that age, it's also quite easily proven one way or another if there is any doubt. Again, this is not a very rare occurrence.

However, the Sporting president many, many years later picked up on it. Without any proof of course, but he doesn't need it. Because all you need is someone to spread the rumour, "the seed of doubt". In Sweden we call them useful idiots, and you're being one of them right now. The kind who needs fuck all confirmation to spread bullshit that confirms their own prejudice. In this case, with a player of African heritage with a late birth certificate, it appeals to a prejudice deep within many people, which is why it's so effective.

You're running a racist errand and you have literally nothing to support the rumour you're spreading. All it takes is the Sporting president and useful idiots not googling things like "late birth registration" to find out that you can't just claim an age and that's it. Useful idiots are also never, ever racists in their own eyes. As if it's a coincidence that he's black. If he wasn't, the Sporting president wouldn't have picked up on it in the first place. But believe it or not, white players too will have late birth registrations among them. Not that white players ever have their age questioned -- I can't think of a single one, myself.

The problem is that me writing this all out takes time, but it just takes a hunch and some prejudice for people like you to spread the bullshit further. Which I'm sure you will. Because "apparently United had reservations". Fucking hell, sit the fuck down.

I have no idea how old Renato Sanches is and neither do you.

Most in football will have the necessary information. I heard it last summer, nothing about any Sporting president, someone close to United.

Best "young" player in the world. 12 months later on loan at struggling Swansea City.

Reiterated to me a couple of weeks ago that nobody will touch him.

Signing Renato Sanches will not make Swansea City a top 4 team. Don't get me wrong, Renato Sanches is a decent player, and their squad is decent and most certainly will put them somewhere in midtable, but their squad plus Sanches is far from those of the Manchester teams, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, and even Everton. Unless a few of those teams implode spectacularly during the season like in 2015-16 it is hard seeing Swansea getting into the top 4.

Not quite right. It isn't guaranteed that Sanches will play this season regularly in the first team at Bayern, so they send him for a year to Swansea to give him the opportunity to play regularly in a top league and Paul Clement knows him from his time at Bayern as Carlo Ancelottis assistant.
He is on loan without a "Buy option" after 1 year. Other clubs who were interested in Sanches too wanted such a buy option, but Bayern refused. So next season he's back at Bayern.
Bayern haven't given up on Renato Sanches (yet).

Yes boss I'm in complete agreement. There is more dominance in defence also with Olsson & Bartley. Big up Claude Makélélé delivering on his role as spiritual elder to a tee. I think the white contrasts beautifully also.

So stop spouting bullshit about it then?

Rule of thumb: know first, spread incriminating information second. Again; know first, spread incriminating information second.

Also, his career trajectory proves as much as Rooney's proves that his birth certificate is fake. He goes on loan at twenty and that's enough for you?

You're running a racist errand. Stop doing it.

Sanches apparently requested his year of birth as his new Swansea number but it was rejected.

Bony is that one who'd score a lot of goals! Renato Sanches haven't scored for Bayern and has few goals for Benfica. He'd create some chances, if he's able to adapt to the Premier League. Loosing Sigurdsson and Llorente isn't good news, but the club made a £28 million, which could be invested in January.

At PSV he was considered a blind horse as he lacks football intelligence. Additionally, Narsingh is extremely softy because he prefers to avoid every physical confrontation. Saying that he wasn't very popular at PSV would go down as the understatement of the day.

He played there today for us and didn't look up to much, he went central later on and was much better there
