There is still no movement in transfer poker around the Austrian national player Marcel Sabitzer (27) from RB Leipzig. The ball is at Bayern.
“There is no contact between FC Bayern and us regarding a player,” said Florian Scholz, head of sports at Leipzig, on Tuesday.
Several media had previously reported on the first concrete negotiations between the clubs about Sabitzer. In fact, there is a week before the closing of the transfer window, which can also be learned from the FC Bayern environment, but there is still radio silence.
A circumstance that could change quickly, because the Munich based on information from SPOX and Goal the verbal commitment by the player to make an immediate change. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic is in close contact with Sabitzer’s advisor Roger Wittmann – it is now up to FC Bayern to prepare an offer or not.
RB Leipzig prepared for the departure of Marcel Sabitzer
“FC Bayern is always good for something,” said Salihamidzic recently, and “all options are open” until the last day of the transfer period. Those responsible in Leipzig are prepared that Salihamidzic and Co. will contact them by August 31st.
Sabitzer, who had expressed his wish for a change months ago, is allowed to leave the club if a suitable offer is made. The “Red Bulls” would like to earn around 15 million euros for the versatile midfielder, whose contract expires next summer. For this sum, Leipzig’s Ilaix Moriba (18) could loose as a Sabitzer replacement from FC Barcelona. Moriba is advised by the same agency as Sabitzer is, so the ways are very short.
FC Bayern: Tolisso before staying, Cuisance is to be awarded
For those responsible in Munich, the question now arises as to the meaning of a Sabitzer obligation. The record champions could still manage the 15 million euros despite his Corona austerity course. But does he need Sabitzer as long as the midfielders Corentin Tolisso and Michael Cuisance, who have been declared sales candidates, are still in Julian Nagelsmann’s squad and on the payroll?
Neither for Tolisso nor for Cuisance lies according to information from SPOX and Goal are currently making a purchase offer. However, Cuisance could still be loaned out, and the 22-year-old French’s advisors are looking for a buyer. His chances of match practice at FCB are slim after a preparation that, according to Nagelsmann, was “rather so-so”.
