Sabitzer has impressed with his passing range since coming into the team

Sabitzer, 28, joined Manchester United in January following Christian Eriksen’s lengthy injury.

The Austrian has been at Bayern since the summer of 2021, but fans spotted an interesting feature on his Instagram page.

This being the number of posts he has relating to Bayern and United.

Sabitzer posted just three times to his Instagram while with the German champions, including two posts announcing his transfer from RB Leipzig.

However, since joining the Red Devils he has already posted 12 times since February 2.

And fans are convinced they know the cryptic message behind it.

One fan said: “No reason for us not to sign him up permanently!

“Need to build that quality in depth he has the mentality and quality to be a united player.”


A second said: “He loves United more than Bayern… he knows he will just end up on the bench at Bayern.

“A player of his calibre needs to be playing games which he will be doing at United. We need players like him. He’s a machine. .”

While a third wrote: “We need him permanently, we need to have a big squad with quality.”

However, some fans noted the reason behind the number of posts could be related to United’s PR and marketing departments.

One fan argued: “Tbf the club definitely makes our players do this – look how suddenly two or three of our players have made TikTok accounts at the same time.”

A second user commented: “Man United have a PR team that handles Social Media for players. Bayern seem like they don’t.

“I am pretty sure it has been mentioned that a lot of United players have contractual obligations in their contracts regarding social media as well.”

“I mean, probably has a clause in his contract stating he has to post x-amount of posts for engagement/global branding,” added a third.

On the subject of a permanent deal for Sabitzer and Wout Weghorst, Erik ten Hag was coy.

He said: “I think it is much too quick [to decide]. [It is] much too soon to talk about that.

“First, we are in this season and that is where the focus has to be.

“No distractions for what is coming next season. Only the season we are in.

“We are in the right position at this moment, this is the position we want to be as we are now competing in three leagues [competitions].”
