Manchester United could be dealt a blow in their transfer plans as they may miss out on the permanent signing of Marcel Sabitzer.
Sabitzer, 29, is keen on continuing his career with Erik ten Hag as his manager.
However, his deal with Manchester United does not include an option to buy, and therefore, it will be up to Bayern and Tuchel to decide if he will be sold.

Under former manager Julian Nagelsmann, it seemed that Sabitzer’s career at Bayern was over. However, that could change under Tuchel’s leadership.
The final decision on Sabitzer’s future is expected to be made around May/June time.
Since joining Manchester United on loan in January, Sabitzer has become a regular member of the side, appearing in nine games in all competitions and scoring one goal.
Sabitzer has also left the door open to a permanent move to Old Trafford.
However, if Tuchel decides to keep Sabitzer at Bayern, it will be a significant blow to Manchester United’s midfield options.
Sabitzer has already left the door open to a permanent move to Old Trafford, but it remains to be seen if that will happen.
