Marcel Sabitzer is set to leave Bayern Munich permanently in the summer.
Manchester United have officially confirmed the loan signing of midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on loan until the end of this season.
The Red Devils have been smart in picking players in the winter transfer window. They invested in Sabitzer after seeing Christian Eriksen likely to miss up to four months of action due to an ankle injury.
According to 90min, the club entered talks with Sabitzer over a potential move to Old Trafford on loan for the remainder of the season on Tuesday. They also cracked a deal for this player.
“Marcel is a player that we have watched for a long time,” Man United football director John Murtough said.
“The opportunity arose quickly, and we knew that he was someone with the ability and character to make an impact. He adds further quality to our squad and experience to the dressing room, and all of us are pleased to be welcoming him to Manchester United.”
Speaking to the club’s official website after completing the move, Sabitzer said: “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 am a competitive player; I want to win and help the club achieve its aims this season.
“I feel that I am at my peak as a player, and that I can contribute a lot of experience and energy to the squad. I am excited to start with my new team-mates and manager and to show my qualities to Manchester United fans.”
The midfielder has made 54 appearances for Bayern since arriving from RB Leipzig in 2021. He has a contract at Bayern until 2025 but sources report he is set to leave the club permanently in the summer.
