Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has agreed personal terms with Manchester United ahead of his deadline day transfer. The Red Devils opened talks with the German champions for the 28-year-old earlier today and they have since made good progress. Sabitzer has already accepted a contract offer from United. He is set to travel to Manchester in anticipation of an agreement. As per Fabrizio Romano, United are expected to sign the Austrian on a five-month loan. Discussions are ‘very advanced’ over the deal. Sabitzer will be a fantastic signing for Man Utd United recently confirmed a long-term injury for Christian Eriksen. The Dane will be sidelined for around three months after his ankle injury against Reading last weekend. Eriksen has been a fantastic signing for United with his creativity from midfield and the arrival of Sabitzer will ensure that the club have a like-for-like replacement. The Austrian was a tremendous performer during his time at RB Leipzig. He averaged a goal contribution in every other game but he has played in his shadows at Bayern. He has failed to nail down a starting role in the last 18 months, playing just over 2000 minutes. The move to Old Trafford should provide a platform to redeem himself. It is clear that Sabitzer will be an outright starter from the number eight role. It is a win-win situation as his goal involvements would only boost United’s top-four pursuit. If the stint is a successful one, United could go on to sign him on a permanent basis. Sabitzer is set to become United’s third signing of the transfer window after Jack Butland and Wout Weghorst.
