Marcel Sabitzer explains the reason behind his move to Man United

Man United signed Bayern midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on the deadline day.

The Austrian midfielder has moved to Old Trafford on loan for the remainder of the season.

He was brought in to replace Christian Eriksen who is expected to be out for three months with his ankle injury.

There is no option to make the deal permanent and Sabitzer is set to return in the summer.

The club activated an emergency protocol to secure the services of the Austrian midfielder on the deadline day.

His deal was finalised around midnight and the deal sheet was submitted by the 11 pm deadline.

In his first interview, the midfielder details how he wishes to win some silverware with Manchester United.

“It’s a good moment for me, for my family and friends, so I’m excited and looking forward [to it]. I’m happy to be here, of course,” Sabitzer said. “[The transfer happened] Very quick, there were the first conversations and everything went quickly.

“I had to pack my bags and get the flight, and then come here. A busy day but I am very happy. Manchester United is a big club with huge fans, with fantastic fans I would say. Old Trafford is a big stadium, I’ve played there once.

“But I am here to win trophies and that’s the way.”
