Marcel Sabitzer would be very happy to stay at Manchester United after his loan spell ends at the end of the season, confirms Fabrizio Romano. The Austrian midfielder arrived on loan in the January transfer window from Bayern Munich but there is no option to make the deal permanent in the summer.

Loan deal doesn’t include buy option, it will be up to Bayern… and Tuchel now.

Bayern Munich Manager Thomas Tuchel Holds Big Role Over Sabitzer’s Future
The Bundesliga club recently underwent a major managerial change, with Julian Nagelsmann being sacked and replaced with former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel – who was out of a job since Chelsea fired him towards the start of this season.

Romano adds that Bayern and Tuchel both hold a key role in deciding the future of Sabitzer at the club. The German gaffer – who won the Champions League title with the Blues – will be making the decision on whether to keep the Austrian midfielder in his squad after he returns from his loan spell or let him leave on a permanent basis in the summer window.
It is added that the decision over Sabitzer’s future is likely to be made in May or June, mostly after the season is over. Bayern are focusing on winning the Bundesliga and Champions League titles, while the midfielder is also competing for multiple more titles with United.
Sabitzer Happy With His United Experience
Romano further states that the Austrian national team captain is very happy with his experience with the Red Devils so far and would be satisfied with the prospect of continuing to play under Erik ten Hag after his loan spell is over as well. But with United not being able to add a clause that makes a permanent deal a possibility in the summer, the club will have to negotiate a transfer to bring him back to Old Trafford next season.
