The season will be coming to an end in the next few weeks in the Bundesliga, so the German clubs have started planning summer transfers. Bayern Munich is expected to be busy in the market as they look to strengthen the squad in key areas.
Along with signing new players, Die Roten is also expected to part ways with a few players in the summer. Marcel Sabitzer could be one of the players that may leave Bavaria when the transfer window opens in June. The Austrian midfielder is attracting interest from two big clubs.
According to SportBild’s Christian Falk, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid are interested in Sabitzer. The Bavarian club may part ways with the midfielder after just one season if a club comes with an adequate offer. As per Falk, Die Roten is looking to get €15 million for the Austrian midfielder.
It has been a disappointing campaign for Sabitzer in Bavaria. After arriving from RB Leipzig at the end of the last summer transfer window, Sabitzer has found it difficult to get adequate playing time. Sabitzer was expected to play a prominent role since he had worked with Nagelsmann at Leipzig for two years.
The Austrian midfielder is yet to breach the mark of 1000 minutes of playing time for Die Roten across all competitions. The intense competition in the midfield department and poor form have made sure that Sabitzer has got limited playing time. He was finally able to score his first goal for the club against Freiburg a few weeks ago.
The competition for places in the midfield department will be even more intense next season. Die Roten is negotiating with Ajax to complete the signing of Ryan Gravenberch. Meanwhile, the Bavarian club has also been linked with a move for Sabitzer’s former teammate, Konrad Laimer.
With game time difficult to come by, it will make sense for Marcel Sabitzer to look for a move away from Bavaria in the summer. The Austrian midfielder is a boyhood Bayern fan, so it will not be entirely surprising if he decides to stay and fight for a place in the team.

Bayern will not spend heavily in the summer, so any returns from possible departures will be a boost to their transfer budget. Since Marcel Sabitzer has not delivered impressive performances this season, Die Roten may look to cash in. There will be clarity about his future once the season comes to an end in May.
