According to a number of sources, Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has left Germany and is on his way to Manchester, where he should undergo a medical before signing for United on loan for the rest of the season. The two clubs have already reached an agreement, after the player himself accepted the terms proposed by the 20-time English champions.
Chelsea were apparently interested as well, having given up on Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and not reached an agreement with Benfica yet for Enzo Fernandez, but Sabitzer chose Old Trafford as his destination.
The window closes this evening (Tuesday), and United are forced to act fast in the light of the injury suffered by Christian Eriksen, set to keep the Denmark international out of action until the end of April, and possibly beyond.
Sabitzer joined Bayern from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2021, and having started just seven of the 18 Bundesliga matches the German champions have played this season, the 28-year-old’s wish for a change of scenery is understandable.
