Man United opt against signing duo on permanent deals

Man United opt against signing loan players on permanent deals

Man United were forced to improvise in the winter transfer window, as they made moves for Marcel Sabitzer and Wout Weghorst on short loan deals.

However, according to reports in the Mail, the Red Devils will not be looking to make either of the additions on a permanent basis, with Sabitzer set to return to Bayern Munich this summer, and Weghorst set to link up with Burnley.

United will not move for permanent transfers

Both Weghorst and Sabitzer were seen as short-term fixes by Erik ten Hag in the winter, and the Dutchman will be looking for long-term solutions when the summer window opens.

Weghorst’s move to Old Trafford was a shock move by United, as they desperately looked to bring in a striker following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit. However, the 30-year-old has struggled in front of goal, scoring just twice across 26 matches in all competitions.

Sabitzer was brought in late during the January window, but he played a crucial role in filling the void left by Christian Eriksen following the Danish international’s injury. However, United have opted against a $25 permanent deal, as they chase the signings of Mason Mount and Adrien Rabiot.
