After gaining the upper hand in Ligue 1 and in the Coupe de France, Lille and Paris Saint-German faced each other in the Trophee des Champions in Tel Aviv.

The latter, who have of course enjoyed a notable summer window so far, were without the services of a number of lead actors that evening, including both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Sanches at the latest?

Then our own 101 The reporter spoke to Lille boss Jocelyn Gourvennec about the future of Renato Sanches.

Portuguese midfielder Sanches was not called up by Les Dogues that evening after taking a long break due to his performances at the European Championships.

However, speculation about the former Bayern Munich resident is still buzzing across Europe, with players like Arsenal and Liverpool obviously interested in his signature.

After congratulating Gourvennec for the first time on his first silver cutlery since taking his place in the Lille shelter, 101 queried:

“I wanted to ask about Renato Sanches. He is associated with many teams. Are you confident that he will open the season with Lille? ‘

However, Gourvennec’s reaction proved to be an overall disappointment for fans across the Premier League landscape as the Frenchman assured that, as far as he knows, Sanches will return to training in Lille this week:

‘I think so [he will stay with Lille]. He is very professional. Renato was a little sad not coming because it was a little difficult (according to Euro 2020). But he will be with us this week. He will probably be back in training on Wednesday. ‘
