Bayern Munich want less than £20million to sell midfielder Marcel Sabitzer to Man Utd this summer, according to reports in Germany.

The Red Devils completed the signing of Sabitzer on deadline day after Christian Eriksen suffered a long-term injury.

Man Utd managed to land the Austrian international on loan until the end of the season without having to pay a loan fee.

He made his debut for the club against Crystal Palace on February 4 and has started both Premier League matches since with Casemiro suspended.

Overall, Sabitzer has impressed and fans will probably be happy to see the club sign him on a permanent basis if the fee is right.

According to Bild journalist Christian Falk, Bayern only want £18m for the experienced midfielder.

In this day and age, this is a very respectable fee and perhaps even a surprising one for someone with Sabitzer’s track record.

However, you could see Bayern upping their valuation should the 28-year-old continue to impress at Old Trafford.

Sabitzer is not the only Bundesliga player Man Utd could sign in the summer transfer window.

Erik ten Hag is eager to bring in a new striker and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani is a reported target.

Kolo Muani impressed for France at the World Cup and came close to scoring the winning goal in the last minute of extra time in the final but was thwarted by Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

Frankfurt signed Kolo Muani from Nantes on a free transfer last summer and the Bundesliga club stand to make a huge profit should he be sold in the next transfer window.

The 24-year-old has a very impressive 14 goals and 14 assists across 29 appearances at club level this campaign.

He would be a great signing for a Premier League club and Man Utd are ‘expected’ to make a bid, according to SportBILD (via Sport Witness).

There was an agreement with Frankfurt that Kolo Muani would stay until at least 2024, however, there has been a ‘turnaround’ after the player elected to change his agent to Moussa Sissoko – who also represents Ousmane Dembele.

Sissoko has ‘the best connections’ to the biggest clubs in Europe, which means a transfer this summer could be on the cards.

A summer deal is ‘already possible’ with Man Utd ‘expected’ to ‘make an offer’.

Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are all reportedly keen on signing Kolo Muani.

Frankfurt will sell ‘if the money is right’ and the Europa League holders would ‘hardly say no’ to a bid in the region of €100million.
