John Murtough gives two special reasons why Man United will sign Marcel Sabitzer in the summer

February 13, 2023

Man United have officially announced the signing of Marcel Sabitzer, who is Erik ten Hag’s third signing of the January window.

Following Marcel Sabitzer’s loan move to Manchester United from Bayern Munich, John Murtough has voiced his approval of the club’s decision to sign the midfielder.

After Christian Eriksen suffered an ankle injᴜry during the weekend’s FA Cup match against Reading, he was taken to the hospital for scans, which rҽvealed that the player is going to be sidelined for up to four months. As a result, the club is looking into the possibility of getting players on loan in order to compensate for his absence.

United quickly moved to initiate discussions with Bayern Munich after determining that Sabitzer would be an appropriate short-term alternative. As a result of these discussions, the 28-year-old came to Old Trafford on loan until the end of the season on the final day of the January transfer window. Sabitzer might make his debut this weekend against Crystal Palace despite the fαct that the transaction does not include an option to make the trade permanent.

As the football director, Murtough is in charge of recruitment, and he expressed his “pleased” at being able to sign the midfielder on loan. In a statement released by Murtough, it was stated that “Marcel is a player that we have observed for a long time.” “The chance presented itself unexpectedly, and we were certain that he was someone who has both the skills and the qualities necessary to make a difference.”
