Sky journalist: “Machine” who can play in ten positions wants to join Man Utd in permanent deal

Posted by

According to Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg, Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer would “like” to complete his permanent transfer from Bayern Munich to the Premier League.

How is Sabitzer’s future progressing?
The Austrian international moved from the Allianz Arena to Old Trafford in January after signing a loan agreement for the remainder of the campaign. He was brought in at the time as a last-minute emergency replacement for the injured Christian Eriksen, and it’s safe to say that during his 16 appearances so far, Erik Ten Hag has been impressed.

According to Football Insider, the loanee from Manchester United is content with how his time in the Bundesliga has gone and is aware that he is unlikely to have a long-term future with Thomas Tuchel’s team. A deal could potentially be completed in the coming window, according to a reliable source.

The Dutch manager is eager to keep his services, according to the same outlet, so the situation is looking very promising, made even more so after the following update. Should that be the case, The Sun has further revealed that the 29-year-old’s parent club has put a £25 million price tag on his head, consisting of an initial £20 million fee with an additional £5 million in add-ons.

Plettenberg confirmed on Twitter that Sabitzer is eager to make a permanent move to Manchester United and that more talks about a switch will likely take place in the coming weeks and months. He stated:

News #Sabitzer: Have you spoken to Thomas Tuchel?Naturally, there hasn’t been any communication thus far. Everyone is concentrating on their respective tasks. We will analyse it later and have a calm discussion about where it will go.

“Recognise that it is still unlikely that he will return to Bayern. Sabitzer hopes to sign a long-term contract with #MUFC this summer. More discussions will come.

Should Manchester United spend big on Sabitzer?
Diogo Dalot, a teammate of Sabitzer’s, referred to him as a midfield “machine”; with Wout Weghorst reportedly also wanting to permanently join, the two could be following in each other’s footsteps this summer. Man United will be aware of Sabitzer’s positive effects on Ten Hag’s team since his arrival.

The Old Trafford player for ROGON, who earns £210k per week, has won seven tackles out of the 11 players he has faced this season. He is composed and calm when he bites into tackles, but he can also help out in the final third.

The Wels native has three goals and one assist in 16 games for the Red Devils in all competitions, and he ranks in the 94th percentile for midfielders in terms of shots per 90 minutes, so he is constantly looking for an offensive breakthrough.

Finally, Sabitzer’s ability to play in an unbelievable ten different positions across the pitch, including in the centre, defence, and up top, would add remarkable versatility to Ten Hag’s team, making this deal a no-brainer for the hierarchy to finalise.
