Marcel Sabitzer feels at home in the Premier League and is keen to extend his Manchester United stay beyond the end of the season.
Sabitzer joined United on loan from Bayern Munich in January after the Red Devils lost fellow midfielder Christian Eriksen to an ankle injury.
While Eriksen returned last week after spending over two months on the sidelines, Sabitzer has played an important role for the Red Devils, making 13 appearances since his arrival and featuring in February’s EFL Cup final win over Newcastle United.
Having scored his first goal for the club in last month’s FA Cup quarter-final victory against Fulham, Sabitzer grabbed two more in Thursday’s 2-2 Europa League draw with Sevilla.
Though Sabitzer’s deal does not contain an option for United to make his move permanent, the Austria international would be open to extending his stay.
“I didn’t have to think for 10 seconds after United called,” Sabitzer said in an interview with German publication Bild. “I said straight away, if the time works, we’ll do it!
“This is initially a project until the summer, then we’ll see. Until then, I want to give everything here. It’s a loan deal with no options. The situation will be assessed in the summer.
“But I can say for myself, I have found my place here. I know the Premier League now and I can say there is nothing better, more intense or tougher.
“Every game is a fight, everything goes faster. This is the best league in the world. Once you have played here, you know it’s incomparable.
“Of course my thoughts on United – especially looking at how things are going and the confidence I get from Erik ten Hag – are very positive. But I don’t have to decide it alone.”
