FC Bayern Munich is probably dealing with Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig

FC Bayern Munich actually doesn’t want to spend any more money on the transfer market this summer. But should the record champions still sell players, something could still be done. The view could then turn to the ex-club of coach Julian Nagelsmann. As the picture reported, Bayern are thinking of signing Marcel Sabitzer.

The Austrian was even promoted to captain under Nagelsmann near Leipzig. Because his contract expires in summer 2022, RB could only generate a transfer fee for the 27-year-old variable midfielder this summer. According to information from SPOX and Goal has already informed Sabitzer the Leipzigers that he does not want to extend his contract. Leipzig had committed Sabitzer in 2014 for a two million euro transfer fee from Rapid Vienna, but initially loaned it to the group sister club Red Bull Salzburg for a year.

There has been speculation about Sabitzer’s departure from Leipzig for months, among other things, he is said to have been on the wish lists at Borussia Dortmund and AS Roma even before the EM. As the picture reported, FC Bayern Munich should also consider a commitment from Sabitzer.

A commitment by Sabitzer would actually make sense in view of the very thin Munich squad. The Austrian international can play the defensive as well as the offensive part in the central midfield. Currently, the record champions Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka are not only placed in the head office, they are virtually unrivaled. World champion Corentin Tolisso was never really able to assert himself and is currently out due to a corona infection, Michael Cuisace has not yet recommended himself for a new probation opportunity with the record champions in preparation.

FC Bayern: Sabitzer’s versatility as a trump card

Sabitzer can also play on the right flank, replacing injury-prone Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry if necessary.

According to the picture, 18 million euros including possible bonuses as a transfer fee are under discussion in the room.

According to information from SPOX and Goal, FC Bayern has not yet officially asked Leipzig about Sabitzer. According to our information, the topic is not yet really acute. Coach Julian Nagelsmann, who moved from Leipzig to the Isar together with central defender Dayot Upamecano in the summer, is considered a big fan of the midfielder.
