Marcel Sabitzer would be happy to stay at Man United beyond this current loan period.

Manchester United Football Club are progressing nicely under Erik ten Hag, with the Dutchman having a real positive influence on the squad and dressing room.

With no real budget in January, the gaffer had to look towards the loan market to fill the gaps in his squad on a temporary basis. One man who was brought in was Marcel Sabitzer.

The Austrian has settled in nicely, playing some good football and impressing all the supporters. There is now talk about whether he’d be a good fit to remain at Old Trafford on a permanent deal.

Well, according to Fabrizio Romano, the 29-year-old is ‘very happy’ with his United experience and he would be keen on remaining at the club beyond this current loan deal. He’s enjoying working under Ten Hag.


There is no option or obligation for United to buy Sabitzer outright, though the situation has become a little more complex due to Bayern Munich changing their manager…

Under Julian Nagelsmann, Sabitzer was a bit-part player, though Thomas Tuchel may have other plans for the Austrian.

No decision will be made on Sabitzer’s future until May/June, allowing the midfielder to focus on finishing the season here in Manchester, before committing either way.

If the price is right, I’d really like United to push hard in order to bring Sabitzer in on a permanent basis. He’s someone who can play the Ten Hag way nicely, while he’s already settled at the club so there would be no bedding in period necessary.

It’s also a positive that the player seems to be enjoying life here, too, meaning he’d be more than content if United and Bayern came to an agreement.
