WHAT HAPPENED? The Austria international midfielder was a last-minute signing for the Red Devils as the January window prepared to swing shut, with an unfortunate injury suffered by Christian Eriksen forcing the Premier League giants into a deadline day scramble for new recruits. Sabitzer is due to see out the 2022-23 campaign at Old Trafford, with the Bayern Munich-owned 28-year-old suggesting that he may be tempted to remain in England beyond that point.

WHAT THEY SAID: Sabitzer has said when quizzed on his future intentions: “It’s a loan at the moment, that’s all I can say. I like it here, I’m feeling very good here, I like the team, I like the club, the atmosphere in Old Trafford. We will see what happens in the summer.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sabitzer has taken in three appearances for United so far, starting back-to-back Premier League meetings with Leeds, and has helped them to pick up seven points. Erik ten Hag’s side are now just five back on table-topping Arsenal, with their winter recruit saying when asked if the Red Devils are in the title race: “It’s hard, we’re a bit behind them (Arsenal), but when we keep on going, doing our job, be ready for that and we will see.”
