Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti has conceded Renato Sanches could leave the club this summer.

The 19-year-old only joined Bayern a year ago after impressing for Portugal at Euro 2016.

But he struggled to make an impact in his debut season, starting just six Bundesliga matches, and has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

"At this time, he's training with us. We have to make a decision," said Ancelotti when asked about Sanches' future. "A move could be a possibility but there is also a chance he could stay with us for the season."

There has also been speculation that United might be interested in signing Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal.

But Ancelotti was more clear-cut in his appraisal of the Chilean, saying there is "no way" that he is leaving.

"Vidal is our player, I have a lot of confidence," said the Italian ahead of Bayern's friendly with Chelsea in Singapore on Tuesday.
