THE BIGGER PICTURE: As a result of his injury, Sabitzer may well have played his last game for United as he is only there on a short-term loan from Bayern Munich with no option to buy, although he has spoken glowingly about his time at Old Trafford and seems open to a permanent transfer. According to the MEN, United have been in contact with the Bavarian giants over the player's rehabilitation, with no decision made on his long-term future.
IN TWO PHOTOS:
WHAT NEXT FOR SABITZER? The midfielder's future is now somewhat up in the air, and it remains to be seen whether he forms part of head coach Erik ten Hag's plans with United set to bolster their midfield options in the summer. He is likely surplus to requirements at Bayern, too, so he could well be left in limbo.
