Bayern Munich has declared to Manchester United how much it would cost to sign a permanent contract with midfielder Marcel Sabitzer, reports suggest. Following Christian Eriksen’s ruling out due to an ankle injury for three months, Sabitzer’s loan spell at the United was ensured on the deadline day.
Sabitzer got the United debut much sooner than expected following Casemiro’s suspension for three games, but the Austria international faired fine against Crystal Palace and Leeds. In United’s 2-1 win against Palace, he came off the bench and thrived for his team against Leeds.
Manchester United to pay €18m to sign a permanent contract with Marcel Sabitzer
Reports suggest Bayern are asking for an amount of €18m for Sabitzer, but they’ll be free to negotiate with the United in the summer.
The report also suggested that Bayern thought €18m was a ‘fair price’ considering the fact that they signed the midfield from RB Leipzig for a reported €14m in 2021. Sabitzer also said that he’d be interested in being a part of the club permanently because he likes the atmosphere.
What did he say?
“It’s a loan at the moment; that’s all I can say. I like it here. I’m feeling very good here. I like the team; I like the club and the atmosphere in Old Trafford. We will see what happens in the summer. It’s been a busy few days. I had to come in quickly, but I enjoyed it. I like it so far. The team welcomes me very well. It was a bit of a cold start, but I had to step in quickly because of the Casemiro suspension. I’m ready for that and happy playing.”
He also stated that the management carries clear communication with him, and he tries to fulfill the expectations. Time will reveal if it gets to a permanent contract.
