Revealed: The reason Manchester United are not signing Marcel Sabitzer permanently

Manchester United’s plans for the Austrian midfielder have been revealed.

Manchester United were dealt a big blow at the beginning of the year when Christian Eriksen suffered an injury, which would keep him out until April.

The Dane had been a huge asset for Erik ten Hag and losing him for a prolonged period would impact the way United want to play under the Dutchman.

To solve this issue, Man United were forced to dip into the winter market, landing Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich for the second half of the season.

Sabitzer had a decent start to life in England and would score three and assist one in 18 outings across all competitions.

However, Sabitzer fell out of favour when Eriksen returned and was then sidelined with an injury of his own, meaning he will miss the FA Cup final at the weekend.

And now, whilst it has been reported that Bayern Munich are happy to offload the midfielder and have set an achievable asking price of around £18m, the Daily Mail say United are not going to take up any option of signing Sabitzer on a permanent basis.
