Mario: 'Milan a great club for Sanches'
Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario admits that Serie A rivals AC Milan could be a good fit for Bayern Munich playmaker and fellow Portuguese international Renato Sanches.

Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario has tried to encourage fellow Portugal international Renato Sanches to join him in Serie A by moving to city rivals AC Milan.

Sanches was hotly-tipped to shine after making a move to Bayern Munich and impressing during Portugal's Euro 2016-winning campaign, but the 19-year-old has since struggled for playing time under coach Carlo Ancelotti.

It is thought that a number of European clubs are now eyeing a move for the young playmaker, and countryman Mario has suggested that AC might just be the perfect fit for Sanches.

"We spoke after Thursday's game [between Inter and Bayern in Singapore]," Mario told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He is young and strong, so I understand that he wants to play consistently and there is a lot of competition for places at Bayern.

"I told him that if he goes to Milan, he'll find a great club and I'd have another friend in the city."

Sanches joined Bayern from Benfica for £27.5m last summer.
