Bayern Munich ‘open’ to selling on-loan Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are ‘open’ to parting ways with Marcel Sabitzer, who is on loan at Manchester United, next summer, according to Sky Sport reporter Florian Plettenberg on Twitter (h/t Express).
The Red Devils have been impressed by the Austria international’s performances in the last few fixtures. At the moment, his future is still up in the air.
However, the Old Trafford side like the 28-year-old’s physicality. But it remains to be seen whether the Manchester-based club will permanently acquire the midfielder’s services in the upcoming transfer window.
In January, Sabitzer joined United on a temporary move until the end of the season. The former RB Leipzig star’s deal does not include a buy option for the Red Devils.
The Austrian has not had the best of spells with the Bavarians since moving there. Konrad Laimer is set to join the Allianz Arena side and could replace the 28-year-old in Julian Nagelsmann’s team.
Sabitzer made his way to the Old Trafford side at a key moment. On deadline day, the Manchester-based club got a hold of his signature, with Christian Eriksen on the sidelines for a considerable period.
The Denmark international was a key player in United’s midfield alongside Casemiro. Erik ten Hag has preferred pairing up the two in the engine room in the current campaign.
Against Crystal Palace, the Brazil international also picked up a suspension for a red card. Scott McTominay has also been unavailable. Therefore, the Austrian has been an important player in our last few matches.

With the likes of Fred failing to perform consistently over the years, United evidently need to freshen things up in the middle of the park. Sabitzer looks like a player with immense quality. But it would be wise for the Red Devils to see how the 28-year-old performs for the rest of the season before making a decision.
