The summer transfer window has witnessed a very proactive and aggressive approach from Bayern Munich. The Bavarian club has been efficient when it comes to closing deals for primary targets in various projects. Moreover, Die Roten has also negotiated good deals for selling the fringe players.

Marcel Sabitzer was also considered one of the fringe players at the end of the last season. Despite winning his first Bundesliga title with Die Roten, Sabitzer had a very disappointing campaign in Bavaria. He struggled to deliver quality performances in the limited playing time for Die Roten.

By the end of the season, few reports in German media suggested that Sabitzer could leave Bavaria this summer. Arsenal and Atletico Madrid reportedly considered a move for the Austrian midfielder. Sabitzer’s agent was spotted at Sabner Strasse to hold talks with Bayern officials regarding his client’s future.

After the talks with the club, Sabitzer’s agent confirmed that the Austrian midfielder would be staying in Bavaria. The former RB Leipzig midfielder is eager to deliver in his second season. However, the transfer speculation around Sabitzer continues to persist this summer. While talking to Bild (via iMiaSanMia), Sabitzer insisted that a transfer was not on his mind.

"“Why should I think about that? There are many players who didn’t do well in their first year.”"

Marcel Sabitzer was on the scoresheet against DC United as he hammered past the goalkeeper from just outside the box. It was a very solid performance from the Austrian midfielder. After the game, Julian Nagelsmann also heaped praise on the Austrian midfielder.

The German coach admitted that Sabitzer had been one of the best players during the pre-season training. Sabitzer will be looking to maintain this momentum to make a case for a place in the starting XI against RB Leipzig in DFL Supercup later this month. With Leon Goretzka on the sidelines due to a knee injury, Sabitzer has a good chance of making a strong start to the season.

Meanwhile, Marcel Sabitzer will have much more competition in the center of the park as the season progresses. The Bavarian club has signed Ryan Gravenberch from Ajax to add more quality to the midfield department. The Dutch midfielder came off the bench to provide the assist for Thomas Muller’s goal against DC United.

The German Champions are also looking to sign Sabitzer’s former teammate Konrad Laimer. Die Roten had a second bid rejected by Leipzig for Laimer this week. Considering the unique nature of scheduling for next season, Sabitzer shouldn’t be worried about chances to impress. He should focus on grabbing these chances with both hands to enjoy a successful second season in Bavaria.
