Manchester United Announce Signing of £165k-Per-Week ‘First-Class’ Player in Last-Minute Deal

Manchester United Marcel Sabitzer

A Manchester United Marcel Sabitzer move has been officially announced, with the player moving from Bayern Munich. The midfielder earned approximately £165k per week with the German champions, and will look to add to the Red Devils’ campaign as soon as possible, with the player previously being described as “first-class” for his quality performances.

Why is a Manchester United Marcel Sabitzer Move Happening?

There is one main reason for Marcel Sabitzer to make the move, and that is the incredibly serious injury faced by Christian Eriksen. The Dane is out for potentially four months, which puts him out for the majority of the season. Manchester United already needed a bit more depth in midfield to avoid playing below-par players, and the loss of one of the club’s classier players could seriously harm the side’s campaign.

What are the Terms of the Agreement?

The Austrian midfielder is moving to Old Trafford on loan. However, there isn’t necessarily going to be any form of a permanent deal at the end of the contract. Fabrizio Romano’s earlier tweets mentioned only a loan. A loan works perfectly for both sides. Bayern Munich get to keep the player in the future and Erik ten Hag covers a short-term loss of a quality midfielder without having to commit to a player that might not work out. It’s ideal for all parties.

How Does the Move Affect the First Team?

After spending a long time on the bench in Munich, Sabitzer will look to play a lot more minutes in Manchester. As Christian Eriksen played a lot of football under the Red Devils’ manager, the Austrian will likely see plenty of opportunities as his direct replacement. However, this could be an ideal opportunity for the likes of Scott McTominay and Fred to start securing spots in the first team.
