Man Utd sign Sabitzer on loan from Bayern

Manchester United have signed Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on loan until the end of the season in a late Deadline Day move.

There is no option to buy the Austria international.

United's need for a midfielder intensified after Christian Eriksen was ruled out with an ankle injury until at least April, with Donny van de Beek unavailable for the rest of the season and Scott McTominay out for a few weeks.

The club were offered a host of midfielders including free agent Isco, Atletico Madrid's Saul Ninguez and Yannick Carrasco and Lyon's Houssem Aouar, but preferred Sabitzer.

Chelsea also enquired about a deal for Sabitzer but chose to pursue a move for Benfica's Enzo Fernandez.

Sabitzer joined Bayern from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2021 but has started just seven games in the Bundesliga so far this season.
