Why Manchester United missed out on Bayern Munich midfielder on deadline day

A quiet end to the winter transfer window was expected from Manchester United.

However, it was revealed on Tuesday morning that Christian Eriksen is out of action until around April.

This left United with a major gap in their midfield that needed to be filled in a very short time.

The man the Red Devils look set to fill it with is Bayern Munich’s Marcel Sabitzer, who is expected to join on a six-month loan.

Before targeting the Austrian, though, it appears United wanted to sign another Bayern midfielder in Ryan Gravenberch, but the German powerhouse would not let him leave.

Reporter Miguel Delaney said on his YouTube channel: “Manchester United have asked Bayern about Sabitzer – they’re open to a loan.

“They also asked about Gravenberch who Ten Hag has worked with before and knows his system well.

“But Bayern don’t want him to go. They did also consider Youri Tielemans but Brighton would also only let him go for a huge fee. They aren’t going to pay big money for him this window. There is also competition for Sabitzer from Chelsea.”
