Marcel Sabitzer joins Bayern Munich on four-year deal

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer on a four-year deal.

The Austria midfielder, 27, spent seven years at Leipzig.

Marcel Sabitzer helped the club to establish themselves as a force after their promotion to the top flight in 2016.

“As a child my Bayern jersey was my pride and joy,” Sabitzer said.

“I got a new one at Christmas every year.”

“I’ll give everything for this club.”

“I want to win as many matches as possible and of course collect lots of titles,” he added.

Marcel Sabitzer follow suit

Sabitzer played 229 times for RB Leipzig.

He follows head coach Julian Nagelsmann and France defender Dayot Upamecano from the Red Bull Arena.

The trial have joined the nine-in-a-row Bundesliga champions, where he will wear the number 18 shirt.

Last season, the trio helped Leipzig finish second behind Bayern in the league.

They reached the German Cup final, which they lost 4-1 to Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern have made an impressive start to life under 34-year-old head coach Nagelsmann.

As well as Sabitzer and Upamecano, Bayern have this summer signed English left-back Omar Richards and former Germany Under-21 goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
