Man United: Andy Brassell shares one concern about Marcel Sabitzer

Man United: Andy Brassell shares one concern about Marcel Sabitzer - Manchester United News

Manchester United‘s new signing Marcel Sabitzer has not received a lot of game time for Bayern Munich, which is a slight concern for journalist Andy Brassell.

The Lowdown: Sabitzer signs

Erik ten Hag chose to bolster his midfield options on deadline day, signing Sabitzer on a loan deal deal from Bayern Munich until the end of the season, with his squad blighted by injury issues.

Scott McTominay could be set to miss out for more than two weeks, while Christian Eriksen’s ankle injury means he may miss out until the end of April, and so a new addition in the engine room was of paramount importance to the United boss.

However, Brassell has questioned whether the addition of the Bayern ace is the right move…

The Latest: Brassell reacts

Speaking live on Sky Sports about the arrival of the Austrian, the journalist said: “What Manchester United need is someone at the front of the midfield, who can complement Bruno Fernandes without getting in his way.

“Now, Sabitzer is versatile enough to do that, so I feel he would work pretty well. The only question is, he’s not played much for Bayern, so how quickly can they get him to that point where he can contribute on a regular basis?”

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United

MUFC fans, do you remember what year Cristiano Ronaldo signed the first time?

The Verdict: Right signing?

The midfielder has only received limited minutes in the Bundesliga this season, failing to start in the last nine games, which indicates that he may not immediately be up to the speed of the Premier League.

When he does reach full fitness, however, the 28-year-old’s track record indicates that he could be a worthwhile signing for United, particularly in an attacking sense, bagging a very respectable 52 goals and 42 assists in 229 appearances with RB Leipzig.

Admittedly, the playmaker’s career has stalled since he joined Bayern, but it cannot help that he has not been given a consistent run in the team, completing the full 90 minutes on just two occasions in the Bundesliga this season.

As such, if Ten Hag gives Sabitzer the game time that he needs to get back to full fitness, he could be a real boost for United in their aim to finish inside the top four.
