We take a closer look at Manchester United's latest signing, Marcel Sabitzer, who has arrived at Old Trafford on loan from Bayern Munich until the end of the season.
28-year-old Sabitzer will help to fill the void left by United playmaker Christian Eriksen, who has been left sidelined for three months after suffering an ankle injury in the Red Devils' FA Cup victory over Reading.
Here's everything you need to know about Man United's latest recruit...
Marcel Sabitzer is from the city of Wels in Upper Austria, and has represented the senior Austrian international team on 68 occasions.
Marcel Sabitzer is 28 years old. He was born on 17th March 1994.
Marcel Sabitzer joins Manchester United on loan from German giants Bayern Munich. Sabitzer joined the Bundesliga champions from RB Leipzig in August 2021, and has made 54 appearances for the Bavarians in all competitions.
Marcel Sabitzer is a dynamic midfielder who thrives when driving with the ball and looks to make things happen in the final third.
He is a player who is blessed with both imposing athleticism and impressive technical ability, and will provide an ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen in an advanced midfield position for United after the Dane suffered a significant ankle injury against Reading in the FA Cup.
Sabitzer is capable of providing both goals and assists from midfield, and is also a dangerous set-piece taker just like Eriksen. The 28-year-old has registered 12 goals in 68 appearances for his nation Austria, with his goal threat meaning he has even turned out as a forward during his career.
Marcel Sabitzer has agreed to join Manchester United from Bayern Munich on a straight loan deal until the end of the season, with no option or obligation to buy for the Red Devils in the summer.
Should the loan move prove successful for the Austrian, however, Erik ten Hag may be keen to make the move permanent at the end of the season if United can agree a suitable fee with Bayern.
