Erik ten Hag feels too early to decide on permanent moves for Manchester United duo Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer
The Holland and Austria internationals joined the Red Devils on a temporary basis in January. In recent fixtures, the duo have been pivotal to the gaffer’s plans at the Old Trafford side.
However, speaking to the media via Manchester Evening News, has declined to comment on whether the Manchester-based club will look to sign Weghorst and Sabitzer in the upcoming transfer window.
“I think it’s much too quick, much too soon to talk about that. First, we are in this season. That is where the only focus has to be. No distractions for what is coming next season.”
United have got the Dutch and Austrian nationals at the club only until the end of the season. The Red Devils do not have an option or obligation to buy either of them next summer.
Weghorst arrived from Burnley last month after cutting short his loan with Besiktas. With the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo earlier in the season, the 30-year-old has been a decent stop-gap signing.
Also, Anthony Martial has been on the sidelines for most of the season. Therefore, the Holland international has enjoyed regular minutes in the starting lineup in recent weeks.
As for Sabitzer, he made his way to Manchester on the previous transfer window’s deadline day. It was a wise move considering Christian Eriksen injured himself last month for a considerable period.
During that period, Casemiro also picked up a red card in the Premier League. Therefore, the 28-year-old’s addition proved to be important. The Austrian has put in some decent shifts in the opportunities the gaffer has provided him.

Weghorst and Sabitzer’s addition has evidently added much-needed depth to our squad. But will we sign the two or pursue other targets to add more quality to the team next summer? It remains to be seen.
