According to Florian Plettenberg, Marcel Sabitzer is prepared to agree a permanent move to Man United. Talks are close.
The Austrian international moved to Old Trafford on loan in the winter transfer window after warming the bench at Bayern Munich.
The Sky Sports journalist stated:
“He feels comfortable at #MUFC & can imagine to join Man Utd on permanent deal. But nothing decided.”
“Decisive talks will follow next weeks. Return to Munich unlikely at this stage. Been told that many clubs of the Premier League inquired about him.”
The 29-year-old star is a creative midfielder, who can effectively play in multiple midfield roles.
In the 2020-21 campaign, he scored 9 goals and provided 7 assists for RB Leipzig but last term, he only started eight games in the Bundesliga for Bayern.
The £113,000 a week star is the captain of the Austrian national side and so far, he has made 69 appearances and directly contributed in 26 goals.
During the international break, Sabitzer scored two goals, including a sublime direct freekick, and provided an assist in the 4-1 victory against Azerbaijan (UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers),
Under Ten Hag, so far, he has only started 5 games in the Premier League. On Wednesday night, he set up the winning goal for Man Utd vs Brentford.
Last month, Sport Bild revealed the versatile midfielder feels at home at Old Trafford. In your opinion, should the Red Devils make Sabitzer’s loan move permanent?
