UEFA EURO 2016 Best Young Player of the Tournament Renato Sanches was officially unveiled as an FC Bayern München player at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
The 18-year-old signed a five-year deal with the club prior to his star turn at EURO 2016 with tournament winners Portugal and fully intends to continue his upward trajectory at Bayern.
"I want to be one of the best," the former SL Benfica midfielder told media. "To do that, I want to learn from the best. I want to integrate quickly. The team will help me. It's going to be great."
For Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, meanwhile, the acquisition of Sanches is all part of a wider process and long-term project designed to keep the 25-time Bundesliga champions at the pinnacle of the game.
"It's down to the club to initiate a generation change," the 60-year-old explained. "We already have Kingsley [Coman] and Joshua Kimmich; now we have Renato. We were fortunate to get the deal done before the EUROs. We'd had our eye on him for a long time."
