Marcel Sabitzer can become a permanent signing for Manchester United if Bayern’s price demand is met
According to the Metro, the Red Devils haven’t ruled out signing the Austrian. They aren’t currently planning to do so, but he ‘will come into consideration’ if United offload Fred and Scott McTominay.
United signed Sabitzer on a half-season loan deal in January. The Austrian played a few good games before picking up an injury that ruled him out for the final four games of the season.
Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel does not see the former RB Leipzig midfielder in his plans going forward, hence wants him sold for a reduced price this summer.
It remains to be seen whether the boss wants to get Sabitzer on a permanent deal, having seen him closely 18 times last season.
The 29-year-old can be a good addition to the squad, if not in the first-choice playing XI. He is a forward-thinking midfielder who does a good job off the ball as well.
With United set to compete in four competitions next season, having a deeper squad is a necessity. They struggled with that last season having gone deep in all four competitions they were taking part in (fighting for top-4 in league terms).

The added advantage is that at a cut-price deal, ten Hag could get a player who has the qualities to show that he should be valued higher in the market than a mere €15m.
