Breaking: Manchester United have agreed with Bayern Munich to sign Marcel Sabitzer on loan .
The Austrian has emerged as a Deadline Day target for United and Chelsea but time is running out to sign the 28-year-old.
With Jorginho set to join Arsenal and a move for Enzo Fernandez looking unlikely, Chelsea have made a late dash to sign the former RB Leipzig star.
United, though, have entered the race in the final hours of the window after learning that Christian Eriksen will be out for at least 12 weeks.https://africa.espn.com/

Manchester United are making a late move in the January transfer window to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.
Reports also suggested that Chelsea were in talks with Bayern Munich over a move, however, transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano claims the Blues are focused on different players.
Romano adds that United are discussing potential terms with Bayern Munich following the news that Christian Eriksen will be out for up to three months with an ankle injury. This meant United’s need for a midfielder had to intensify on deadline day.
Sabitzer has started just seven Bundesliga matches this term and he’s keen to move on in the search for regular first team football.
And Fabrizio Romano claims the Austrian has made it clear that he’d be keen on joining United and has given the green light to moving to Old Trafford.
The Austrian did not train in Bavaria today, given the uncertainty over his future at the club.
Meanwhile, Caught Offside understand that United are set to sign Sabitzer on loan with an option to buy. The Austria international is believed to be “excited” by the prospect of playing first team football on a regular basis.
Sabitzer joined Bayern Munich from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2021 and has made 15 appearances in the Bundesliga so far this season. Should United pull this move off on deadline day, I think it would be a great move.
The Austrian is quality on the ball and he runs for days. He’s also the type of player who can dictate the tempo in games, which we will need in Eriksen’s absence.
Let us know in the comments section if you would be happy with United signing Sabitzer on loan until the end of the season.
