Marcel Sabitzer has hinted that he’d be open to extending his stay in Manchester.
Manchester United Football Club are playing well under Erik ten Hag, though there’s much work ahead for the Dutch manager.
This squad is one that plays for their boss now. There’s also genuine belief in the dressing room.
A deadline day loan move for Marcel Sabitzer was somewhat a surprise, though it was completely necessary following the injury to Christian Eriksen.
The Austrian has been thrown in at the deep end, starting back-to-back games for United against Leeds. He’d certainly prove his worth with some very decent displays all things considered.
Inevitably, the talks would begin about whether this move would be made into a permanent one. After all, United are light in midfield and Sabitzer simply isn’t playing regularly at Bayern. It does make complete sense for the Reds to at least consider this deal.
Anyway, Sabitzer was asked directly about whether that’s an option, with the midfielder confirming that he’ll ‘see what happens in the summer’.
“It’s a loan and that’s all I can say [about that] at the moment,” he said. “What I can say is I’m feeling very good here, I like the team, I like the club, I like the atmosphere at Old Trafford… so we will see what happens in the summer.” Sabitzer told club media when asked if he’d extend his stay.
Understandably, Sabitzer doesn’t want to throw shade at Bayern, while a lot can change over the course of a few months. I believe the player genuinely doesn’t know where his long-term future lies, though United feel like an excellent option.
We’ll just have to exercise patience and see if Sabitzer can keep up with these excellent performances – then reassess the situation over the summer.
As things stand, I’d certainly take him.
