However, according to German newspaper BILD discussions over a proposed move for Sabitzer between Bayern and RB Leipzig are underway.  

Bayern’s new manager Julian Nagelsmann worked with the Austrian during his time at Leipzig and gave him the captaincy.

Whether a transfer can be concluded this summer remains unclear, however Sabitzer will be able to walk away for free in 2022 if Leipzig fail to agree a contract extension with him.     

Sabitzer made 39 appearances across all competitions for Leipzig last season scoring nine goals and notching seven assists.  

Meanwhile Bayern midfielder Leon Goretzka has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena, however the 26-year-old is set to remain with the Bundesliga champions despite as yet failing to agree a new deal.
