Portuguese youngster went a full circle when he donned the Bayern Munich shirt on the pitch of his boyhood club Benfica this week.
The European Golden Boy from 2016 put in a remarkable performance on the Champions League night, got a standing ovation from Benfica supporters and marked a positive ending to his torrid two-year spell that saw him fall short of confidence, self-belief and become a laughing stock for passing to an advertising hoarding during his time at Swansea City.
Bayern boss Niko Kovac should be applauded for getting the 21-year-old Portuguese back to the right track. The Croatian tactician praised Sanches after an eye-catching performance which grabbed the attention from both Juventus and AC Milan.
According to reports coming from Italy, both Bianconeri and Rossoneri are now keeping tabs of Sanches hoping to get a chance to lure him to Serie A either in January or next summer.
