Benfica Midfielder Renato Sanches was targeted by many top european clubs lately but Bayern Munich have snatched him from their clutches for a reported €35 million. The summer transfer window doesn’t open until July 1 but the Bavarians couldn’t afford to lose the promising 18-year-old.

And when it looked like there couldn’t be any more surprises, Bayern pulled another rabbit out of the hat by confirming that Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels will also be joining them after the conclusion of the current campaign putting end to a protracted and a rather ugly transfer saga.
