Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham are currently in a bidding war for RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer, who is priced at €42 million.
According to the German newspaper Bild, Marcel Sabitzer may be on the move during the summer transfer window. As a result, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham are all competing for the Austrian international’s signature, with RB Leipzig demanding €42 million for him.
Sabitzer joined RB Leipzig from Rapid Wien in the summer of 2014 and has progressed rapidly since then. The 27-year-old has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga and is now the team captain at the Red Bull Arena.
The 27-year-old has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga, having appeared over 200 times for Die Roten Bullen, with a respectable tally of 50 goals and 41 assists to show for his efforts.
Sabitzer, on the other hand, faces an unclear future at Leipzig ahead of the summer transfer deadline, with his new contract expiring in a little more than a year. This has piqued the attention of many clubs, especially those in the Premier League, where Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham are all vying for his signature.
Liverpool is searching for a midfielder due to the confusion surrounding Georginio Wijnaldum’s future. The Dutch international is expected to leave Liverpool as a free agent this season, prompting the Reds to look for a substitute. To that end, the Premier League champions have been linked with Nabil Fekir, who is also wanted by Manchester City.
Manchester United, meanwhile, is in a difficult situation, as Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is once again unclear. Pogba’s imminent exit would necessitate a search for a substitute, making Sabitzer a realistic option for the Red Devils to strengthen their midfield.
