The Austrian midfielder’s announcement could be made official soon.

Bayern Munich have reportedly reached an agreement with RB Leipzig over the transfer of Marcel Sabitzer.

The rumours of the Austrian midfielder joining the Bavarians have been circulating in recent weeks, but the deal will now see its light.

It was reported earlier that Bayern had agreed on personal terms with Sabitzer over a potential summer move but were having second thoughts on the bid.

However, according to new reports, Bayern and Leipzig quickly agreed to a transfer fee worth 15m euros.

Famed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano also reports that the Bavarians are preparing the paper works for the deal and Sabitzer could be announced as their new player soon.

The 28-year-old has his contract running until next summer and Leipzig were ready to cash in on him in the current summer transfer window.

Romano also adds that Sabitzer’s priority is always joining the German Bundesliga champions although Leipzig received three proposals for him.

It could be due to the presence of Bayern boss Julain Nagelsmann, Leipzig’s former manager and the one who brought Sabizter into the spotlight.

Nagelsmann must have engineered the deal to happen and now with the Austrian’s addition, Bayern will have a packed midfield.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic also confirmed that the club was working on Sabizter’s transfer prior to the Hertha Berlin clash.

Sabitzer could make his debut for Bayern after the international break against his former club Leipzig.

The Bavarians are off to a great start to this season with their recent victory coming against Hertha at the weekend.
