Bayern Munich are reportedly open to letting Marcel Sabitzer leave the club this summer just one season after joining, according to Sport1. 

Sabitzer has struggled to force his way into the fold at Bayern after joining on a £13.6 million deal from RB Leipzig last summer (The Guardian). 

The Austria international has started just six games in the Bundesliga for the Bavarian outfit, with the majority of his appearances coming off the bench (Transfermarkt). 

His move to Bayern did not come without interest from elsewhere though, with Tottenham reportedly interested in acquiring him ahead of this season (Football.London). 

While a move to North London never materialised, Sport1 hints Sabitzer could be back on the market sooner rather than later. 

The report mentions the 28-year-old could be allowed to leave Bayern at the end of the season, providing they are able to find suitors interested in parting ways with £12.5 million to break even on their expenditure. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Sabitzer seems to have made a mistake by moving to Bayern as he just hasn’t been able to get back to the levels he displayed with Leipzig. 

Tottenham could have really used a player of his creativity in their squad as they have had a hole that has needed to be filled for a while now, but a move never came to fruition. 

At the reported asking price, it seems a risk worth taking come the summer and Spurs should definitely test the waters at least.
