AC Milan are interested in signing Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches, but an agreement has not yet been reached for the Portugal international, says Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Serie A club have made nine signings already this summer, with former Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci heading the list of big-name arrivals that also includes Portugal international forward Andre Silva and Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia.

And Rummenigge confirmed to German newspaper Bild on Sunday that the San Siro club have their eyes on once-promising Sanches, who he revealed last week could be be loaned out this season.

"I can confirm that Milan have shown interest in Renato Sanches, but there is no agreement yet," Rummenigge told the paper.

The offer is reported to be a two-year loan for €7 million, with an option to buy in 2019 for another €40m.

Bayern paid €35m to pry Sanches from Benfica last summer, in a deal that could balloon to €80m with various bonuses.

The 19-year-old struggled in his first season in Munich, however, playing just 615 minutes in 17 Bundesliga matches.
