Manchester United are hoping to sign a midfielder on loan before the transfer window closes.
Summer signing Christian Eriksen is ruled out of action until April with an ankle injury.
Given Eriksen's importance in central midfield, United will explore the loan market on deadline day.
Per Fabrizio Romano and other sources, they are interested in Marcel Sabitzer of Bayern Munich.
However, a deal will require Bayern's agreement, even if Sabitzer is said to want the move.
Given the lack of time remaining in the transfer window, United face a race against the clock to get any transfer completed.
