Even though Marcel Sabitzer has been displaying a lot of vigour during the preseason, his position with Bayern Munich is not guaranteed. This is according to a report by Kick.
The Austrian is still on the club’s sell list for this summer’s transfer window, according to the report.
The RB Leipzig captain joined the Bavarians last summer. However, he was not able to replicate his performances at the Allianz Arena. Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka were often the first choice pairing for his former manager Julian Nagelsman.
The Bavarians would be willing to release the 28-year-old for a cost of about €15 million. This is the same amount that they paid to pry Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig almost a year ago. Sabitzer has played 30 times for Bayern so far, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
Additionally, if they acceptable offers arrive, Marc Roca, Bouna Sarr, Omar Richards, Joshua Zirkzee, Christian Früchtl, Christopher Scott, and Sarpreet Singh may all depart this summer.
What Sabitzer Said
However, Sabitzer and his agent have downplayed these rumours. The Austrian international himself pointed out the fact that many players take a season to adjust to a new team. He feels that the next year could be the one where he shows his true self.
He’s staying, he wants to really put his foot down in preseason and show that he can do better. Marcel has made it clear that he is not satisfied with his performances this season, but several factors also played a role. For Marcel, it was the worst year in his career. But Bayern also had a very difficult season
That makes the integration for a new player not easy. Everyone who knows Marcel knows how ambitious he is. He came as a leader from Leipzig and is now, of course, unhappy about the whole situationSabitzer’s agent to BILD
All this talk should give Bayern fans some confidence. There is surely a player in him, and everyone will hope that he can demonstrate it to the world next season and prove his doubters wrong.
