Marcel Sabitzer left Bayern Munich for a loan move to Manchester United in January, with no option in the deal to make the move permanent.
The 29-year-old midfielder was not Julian Nagelsmann’s plans at the Allianz Arena, according to Fabrizio Romano, and he is currently enjoying his spell at Old Trafford, playing under Erik ten Hag. There was a growing feeling that an agreement would still be reached between the clubs in the summer.
But after Bayern’s sudden decision to sack Nagelsmann and replace him with Thomas Tuchel, things seem less clear for Sabitzer at the moment. It may well be that the former boss of Mainz, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea will decide to keep the Austrian player, who has more than two years left on his contract with Bayern.
Marcel Sabitzer is very pleased with the Manchester United experience – the player would be happy to stay with ten Hag. 🔴🤝🏻 #MUFC
The loan deal does not include a buy option, now it will be up to Bayern… and Tuchel.
His branch at Bayern with Nagelsmann was already closed.
