Marcel Sabitzer agent suggests a permanent transfer to Manchester United

Manchester United

According to his agency, Marcel Sabitzer is quite content at Manchester United. He would be open to making his loan from Bayern Munich a permanent move in the summer.

On the day of the January transfer deadline, Sabitzer signed a loan agreement with United that would last until the end of the current campaign. Erik ten Hag needed reinforcements in the midfield due to Christian Eriksen’s injury. As a result of Eriksen’s injury, Casemiro’s currently served suspension, and Scott McTominay’s prior absence, he has already made four appearances for United.

The Austrian international, who played sparingly for Bayern, is delighted in the opportunity to play more often. The Premier League’s style, according to his agent Roger Wittmann, fits him, and he has hinted that a summer transfer may be in the works.

“At Manchester United we see Marcel from Leipzig again. I’m very happy for him,” Wittmann told SPORT1. Asked what happens in the summer, he replied: “We’ll see when the time comes.”

According to SPORT1, Bayern would also be amenable to the notion of a permanent transfer during the summer transfer period. The €15 million (£13.2 million) the Bavarian juggernauts spent RB Leipzig to sign him in August 2021 would like to at least be recouped.

Sabitzer to permanently move to Manchester United

Sabitzer has a term with Bayern until June 2025, but if he impresses Ten Hag, a deal that benefits all sides might be struck. Sabitzer’s box-to-box style fits the Premier League well, according to Wittmann, despite his inconsistent performances (he was fortunate to avoid a red card for a careless challenge on Wout Faes during the 3-0 win over Leicester on the weekend).

“Marcel is a top player. It doesn’t surprise me at all that he’s performing so well so quickly,” he said. “If you have as much experience as Marcel, whether in the Champions League or with his more than 60 international matches, it doesn’t take long to find your way around a club and a league like this.”

“He loves this English hardness! It was clear from the start that the Premier League was a great fit for him. He’s an aggressive player. He does exactly what he can there. And that’s what’s needed there.”

Sabitzer’s competitive edge is evident on the training pitch at Carrington, as well as in competitive matches. “I’m a very bad loser,” he told the club website after joining. “Even in training, I can’t lose. I have that mentality over the years, I hate to lose.”

He also sees himself as a natural leader. So despite being the newest member of the team, he won’t be afraid to speak up in the locker room.

“That is my mentality – to go forward, have a voice in the dressing room, on the pitch and give it all,” he added. “That’s normal for me.”
