Man Utd suggest Marcel Sabitzer could be staying at Old Trafford with 'clue' on club website
| Last updated
Marcel Sabitzer could become Erik ten Hag's first signing of the summer following a clue on Manchester United's website.
The 29-year-old chipped in with three goals in 18 games for Erik ten Hag's side, including a brace against Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
He was was one of three January loanees, two of which will not extend their stay at Old Trafford. Goalkeeper Jack Butland is set to join Rangers in July after his contract with parent club Crystal Palace expires, while striker Wout Weghorst is due to return to Burnley.
However, Sabitzer could be handed a permanent deal at United, if the club's website is anything to go by.
Man Utd drop Sabitzer hint
Manchester United released their new home kit for the 2023/24 campaign on Tuesday morning and the club website has given Sabitzer's name and his number from last season as a pre-loaded option for fans to have printed.
His inclusion may come as a surprise to many fans after it was reported he would stay at Bayern Munich this summer.
The Daily Mail claim that Ten Hag would prefer to invest resources into players that can upgrade his squad at Old Trafford, rather than those currently at the club. But the United boss could have made a U-turn on his decision.
The new home strip features a black, white and red striped crewneck collar, along with the three stripes of Adidas in black, and black piping down the sides.
Meanwhile, Alejandro Garnacho's old number was omitted from the club website, sparking rumours that he could be handed the No. 7 shirt, with Cristiano Ronaldo's old number now available.
