Man United have joined in on the race to sign Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned this Manchester United squad into a better one than it was when he first arrived. However, there is still much work ahead for the Baby Faced Assassin.
Holes need to be filled during this all-important summer transfer window. Amongst them, is still the glaring need for a world-class right-winger. Well, today’s transfer rumour isn’t exactly an out-and-out wide man, but he does have experience there.
Marcel Sabitzer is currently the captain of RB Leipzig, though he’s more known to play in the central midfield rather than out wide. However, according to Bild, translated by The Sun, United have entered the race to sign the 27-year-old midfielder.
Apparently, Liverpool and Tottenham are also interested in the Austrian who is in brilliant form right now.
It’s claimed the Reds are keen on bringing Sabitzer to Old Trafford during the upcoming summer transfer window, while the player has made it clear he would like to leave RB Leipzig at the end of the season.
Credit where it’s due, this is another RB Leipzig masterstroke. They’ve been developing players at an elite level over the last half-decade, with Sabitzer the latest in a long, long line of that. Sadly for the Bundesliga outfit, several of their key faces could well move on this summer.
As for Sabitzer, I like him as a player but I’m not sure he’s a glaring need. Personally, I still see Dayot Upamecano as the Leipzig player I would target first and foremost. Purely because United still haven’t found the right partner for Harry Maguire.
