Bayern Munich star Muller 'happy for Sabi' over Man Utd move

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has admitted that everyone was surprised to see Marcel Sabitzer leave for Manchester United.

The Austrian midfielder sealed the move on deadline day, departing the German giants.

While the club do have alternatives in midfield, Muller admits losing the 28-year-old does present a depth issue for Bayern.

“The team was surprised. It happened very quickly," he told Kicker.

“I'm happy for Sabi that he's moving to Manchester United, getting a chance to play there. Manchester is a huge name."

“He'll be back in the summer," the striker added.

“The chapter isn't over yet."
