Marcel Sabitzer ready to get going at Manchester United after loan move from Bayern Munich
Manchester United loan signing Marcel Sabitzer is ready to get going at the Old Trafford side after joining from Bayern Munich on deadline day.
The Austria international made his way to the Manchester-based club in the January transfer window on a temporary move until the end of the season. However, the Red Devils do not have the option to buy the midfielder.
Speaking after the deal was done via Manchester Evening News, the 28-year-old revealed that he took the opportunity to play for United with both hands. The loanee is looking to make a mark at the Old Trafford side.
“Sometimes in life you have to make quick and important decisions. From the moment I heard about this opportunity I knew it was right for me.
“I’m excited to start with my new teammates and manager and to show my qualities to Manchester United fans.”
Sabitzer joined Bayern in the summer of 2021 from RB Leipzig. At Die Roten Bullen the Austrian turned many heads with his performances. Subsequently, the midfielder reunited with Julian Nagelsmann at the Allianz Arena.
However, the 28-year-old has found game time hard to come by with the Bavarians. In the current campaign, he has started just seven games in the Bundesliga for the reigning champions.
At United, Erik ten Hag has lost a lot of depth in the middle of the park. First, Donny van de Beek got injured and is out for the rest of the season.
As a result, Casemiro and Fred are the only two midfielders at the gaffer’s disposal at the moment. So Sabitzer’s addition is a welcome sight. The Austrian has a lot of quality and cast experience.
