Bayern prefer to loan out Sabitzer, who has not been able to become a regular starter for their team since arriving at the club from RB Leipzig in summer 2021. But given his difficulties with making an impact for the team, the German outfit are also open for a permanent exit.
It is not clear whether Chelsea are looking at Sabitzer as a permanent player or on a loan move, as the club are still (presumably) focusing on Benfica’s Enzo Fernández despite a recent update claiming he will be staying in Portugal. In United’s case they want the 28-year-old as a “stop-gap” while Christian Eriksen is out injured.
❗️X News #Sabitzer: Been told that #MUFC is pushing a lot because of the injury of Eriksen. ManUnited has good chances. Sabitzer is ready to leave Munich today BUT: Negotiations with @ManUtd AND #CFC now as revealed. Open race. @SkySportDE pic.twitter.com/HmvTvpaok6— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) January 31, 2023
