Bayern Munich complete double swoop

Hummels, Sanches to join Bayern

Bayern Munich have confirmed that they have struck agreements to sign midfielder Renato Sanches and defender Mats Hummels from Benfica and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

Renato, 18, had been on the radar of several European clubs in recent months, but it is the Bavarian giants that have managed to negotiate a price for the promising youngster.

On the hand, Hummels has opted to move to the Allianz Arena after he agreed personal terms over a five-year contract.

The news will come as a big blow for Manchester United, who were rumoured to be interested in the talented pairing.

Bayern are expected to pay an initial fee of around £28m for Sanches, while they will part with £30m for World Cup winner Hummels.
