Manchester United has agreed to sign Sabitzer from Bayern Munich.


Manchester United are close to signing Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer, on a loan deal according to Sky in Germany.

Sabitzer was pictured boarding a flight to Manchester on Tuesday.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs, with the player thought to be open to the move on Deadline Day.

The move for Sabitzer, who still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract, will be a loan with a buy clause inserted.

United were offered Isco, Saul Niguez, Houssem Aouar and Yannick Carrasco among others, but decided to pursue Sabitzer.

United manager Erik ten Hag admitted earlier on Deadline Day that it would be difficult to do a deal for a player this late and insists United have enough in their current squad to cope with the loss of the injured Christian Eriksen, who is ruled out with injury until at least April.

However, United have spotted an opportunity with Sabitzer – someone they looked at when they were in the market for a midfielder in the summer.

Chelsea have also been keen on Sabitzer, according to Sky in Germany, but they are working on a move for Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez – a deal that has not been fully agreed yet.
