After the commitment of Joao Cancelo, the next transfer hammer is in the offing at FC Bayern – albeit on the tax side. The courted professional has already landed in England. A confirmation is still pending.
Is midfielder Marcel Sabitzer fleeing from FC Bayern towards the Premier League?
According to media information, FC Bayern received specific requests from Manchester United and Chelsea for Sabitzer on Tuesday. The Red Devils seem to be winning the race here.
The professional has already landed in Manchester. “Sky Sports” published the corresponding recordings on Tuesday evening.
The Austrian international was not in training before FC Bayern’s cup game at Mainz 05.
FC Bayern hesitates with confirmation
Sabitzer could initially be loaned out until the end of the season. According to information from “Sky”, no purchase option should be anchored, previously there was talk of a fee of around 15 million euros.
By the end of Deadline Day, neither Bayern Munich nor Manchester United had confirmed the move. Apparently, there are still final details to be clarified between the parties.
The transfer window in the Premier League has been closed since 12:00 a.m. (CET). However, the deal could still be announced retrospectively, provided that all papers were completed in good time.
With the transfer, Manchester United want to respond to the injury of Christian Eriksen, who will probably be out at least until April.
Marcel Sabitzer before leaving FC Bayern
Marcel Sabitzer’s guest appearance at FC Bayern would end after only a year and a half, his contract at Säbener Straße is still dated until 2025.
Of all things, his farewell would fall during the tenure of coach Julian Nagelsmann, who had campaigned for the commitment of his dream player in the summer of 2021.
In the current season, Sabitzer has played 23 competitive games for the record champions, and he was in the starting line-up ten times.
With a view to next season, however, his playing times could be reduced if Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer switches to Bayern Munich. In addition, summer newcomer Ryan Gravenberch insists on more minutes of play.
“He’s the most unpleasant when he doesn’t play. He’s a killer in character. That’s what players look like who want to win,” said Sabitzer’s advisor Roger Wittmann on Tuesday morning on “Sky” about his client.
