‘Whatever happens in the summer, we will see’: Marcel Sabitzer admits he’s yet to make a decision on his Man United future after scoring his first goal since joining on loan from Bayern Munich

- The midfielder is on loan from Bayern Munich until the end of the season
Marcel Sabitzer is keeping an open mind about his future after scoring his first goal for Manchester United on loan from Bayern Munich.
The Austria midfielder was brought in as an emergency signing on deadline day in January after Christian Eriksen joined Donny van de Beek on the sidelines with a long-term injury.
Sabitzer has proved to be an even more important addition because Casemiro has been banned on three occasions since then, with the Brazilian’s current four-match suspension extending his absence to eight games.
Sabitzer replaced Casemiro in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham, and scored the second goal as United came from behind to win 3-1 after their opponents had manager Marco Silva and two players – Willian and Aleksandar Mitrovic – sent off.
The 29-year-old is due to return to Bayern when his loan expires at the end of the season, but he responded to questions about his future by saying: ‘Whatever happens in the summer, we will see.

‘I had to make a quick decision in January. I was focused on this, it was clear it is just a loan until the summer. I take every game as it comes. I’m very happy to be here. I will give 100 per cent.
‘I am very happy to be part of this team, this amazing club, and I feel very welcomed. I am very happy at the moment.
‘I can play all over midfield, I think. I like to do the dirty work. I like to run, to go forward, box-to-box movements. A lot of transitions and high-intensity games are what I am having here.’
Fulham were leading with 20 minutes left when Willian conceded a penalty by handling Jadon Sancho’s shot, and Silva and Mitrovic were sent off for protesting to referee Chris Kavanagh.
Sabitzer added: ‘I was hoping for the handball and the penalty, then I heard there was a second red card. A crazy five or six minutes, but it was good for us.
‘We were 1-0 down, we scored the penalty, we wanted to come back and we did it. That is the most important thing.

‘It was a massive win. We’re very happy, but it was a hard game. Fulham are a tough opponent, a good team, and we are very happy with the result.’
Sabitzer scored when he flicked the ball home from Luke Shaw’s cross before Bruno Fernandes fired his second goal of the game to clinch a semi-final date with Brighton at Wembley next month.
‘I was just hoping Luke would play me this ball,’ said Sabitzer. ‘I tried to hit it with my left one, and I am very proud. It was a happy moment.
‘First of all we have to take Brighton. They are a tough opponent, a good team. At Wembley, we can expect a lot. We are prepared for it, we are excited, and we want to go to the final.’
