Former Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer offered to Barcelona

According to Sport, former Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has been offered to Barcelona this summer.

Sabitzer is expected to rejoin Bayern for pre-season training, but there are ongoing rumours regarding his future at the Allianz Arena. United are reportedly considering the possibility of permanently signing the Austrian midfielder, as coach Erik ten Hag was reportedly impressed with his loan spell at the club.

The fact that ‘Sabitzer 15’ shirts are being sold on the official United website has added to speculation that his loan move may become a permanent transfer from Bayern.

Barcelona has emerged as a potential suitor for the Austrian star in the current summer transfer window. While the club has already secured the signing of Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City, they are reportedly still in search of another central midfielder.

According to the report, Bayern would be willing to accept a fee of approximately €20m (£17.3m) for Sabitzer, who still has two years remaining on his contract with the German club.

The midfielder joined the Bundesliga champions from RB Leipzig in August 2021 and has since made 54 appearances for the club, scoring two goals and providing two assists.

Barcelona are experiencing a midfield shake-up, having lost Sergio Busquets and with uncertainty surrounding Franck Kessie’s future.
