Man United want to sign Marcel Sabitzer permanently, though they’ll require a reduction in price to do so.
Manchester United fans have been impressed with Marcel Sabitzer since his move to Old Trafford in January, with the man from Austria coming in on a late loan deal due to injuries.
Sabitzer’s most-recent performance was a two-goal masterclass at home against Sevilla on Thursday, during his best display from an individual perspective.
For the supporters, it feels like a no-brainer to acquire Sabitzer permanently. He seems to be enjoying life here, whereas the midfielder definitely adds a different dimension to this squad.
However, United will not be signing the 29-year-old permanently, unless the asking price is reduced. That’s according to The Sun. Apparently, Bayern Munich’s asking price currently stands at £25m. United seemingly aren’t willing to pay that amount.
Ten Hag is keen to keep ahold of the player, who has become a valuable asset, whereas Bayern will not stand in his way – but only if their asking price is met.
Judging by the rumours, United are intent on bringing in a new midfielder. It makes sense to make Sabitzer that man as he’s already settled here in Manchester. That’d mean Ten Hag can spend most of his energy focusing on bringing in a new striker for example – which has to be the number one priority.
A lot comes down to club ownership. If the Glazers remain in charge when the summer rolls around, I do not see them sanctioning any big-money transfers whatsoever. If the Reds have new owners in charge, I firmly expect a stronger financial showing in a few months’ time.
Either way, bringing in Sabizter permanently just makes so much sense.
