The question is, how would Man Utd line up with Sabitzer?

The Austrian international is a flexible player, who has proved to be effective in multiple roles over the years.

He is mainly a central midfielder but has also excelled as a right winger and even as a central attacking midfielder. In the 2019-20 campaign, he directly contributed in 27 goals (16 goals and 11 assists) for RB Leipzig.

On the other hand, in the 2020-21 season, he netted 9 goals and provided 7 assists for the German Bundesliga club.

However, since joining Bayern Munich, he has often started on the bench, which is why he jumped on the chance to join Manchester United.

We already have Antony on the right flank and Bruno Fernandes in the CAM position. However, one of our main CMs, Eriksen, is out with an injury for a few months and therefore, Sabitzer should take his place in the lineup.

The 28-year-old star should partner summer signing, Casemiro, in the center of the park in Ten Hag’s preferred 4-2-3-1 system.

Here is how Man Utd would line up with Sabitzer:
