Earlier today United confirmed that Eriksen will be out of action till April.
The Danish midfielder sustained an ankle injury in the FA Cup game against Reading.
The Sabitzer signing has brought some relief to United fans, who were in melt down on social media after hearing the news regarding Eriksen’s injury.
The 28 year old is an excellent replacement for Eriksen.
He provides better defensive cover and all-around ability without the ball.
Sabitzer has been one of the best midfielders in Europe over the past five years.
The 28 year old is known for his tactical versatility and intelligence.
While United clearly did not plan this out, it could turn out to be brilliant piece of business.
Sky earlier reported that he prefers to join United over Chelsea. It makes sense considering the fact that he would be guaranteed more minutes at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag will be delighted at the signing and will be eager to getting him involved as soon as possible.
United face a busy February, with eight games to play in 26 days.
