Renato Sanches has seen playing time come at a premium this season and could be offloaded in the summer according to Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac. In fact, going by what Sanches told the press in the aftermath of their 1-0 win over Werder Bremen that a transfer might be a good idea. He said,

"I think so," 
"Whether a loan or a sale is better, we will see.
"Everyone knows I want to play more. Five minutes is not enough!"

Now Niko Kovac has aired his thoughts on the Portuguese international and they are on similar lines as well. Kovac revealed in a press conference that Sanches' departure is indeed a possibility.

It's not easy for him, he trains hard like everyone else,"
"What's going to happen in the new season is not certain, we all have a job together now, and he's also part of making this season that way.
"We want to talk about everything in the summer, we'll talk after the last game and sit down together, it's not easy, we won 11 games, one loss, one draw.
"Everybody on the field is doing well, so it's not easy to get a successful, good player out on the field, so let's just wait and see if there are situations where he plays.
"Now we don't need it because we need momentum, not because we need a different type of player - the team is solid at the moment.
