Man United have been asked to pay $25 million this summer by Bayern Munich if they wish to sign Marcel Sabitzer on a permanent deal, according to Florian Plettenberg at Sky Sports Germany.
The Austrian international has been on loan at Old Trafford since the January window, and there have been growing reports that the Red Devils would be keen on the permanent addition.
Man United willing to wait over Sabitzer transfer
While the Red Devils remain interested in making the switch permanent, the club is under no pressure to move quickly in the summer market. A new central midfielder remains a priority position for the Red Devils, but moves for a new central defender and striker remain at the top of the agenda for Erik ten Hag.
The latest reports have also claimed that United’s ownership situation could also be a stumbling block. There has yet to be an official decision made on the club’s ownership situation, with the Glazers still weighing up offers from Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS and Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani.
