Barcelona plans to sign Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern as a 'Busquets' replacement

Barcelona was left with the challenging challenge of replacing Sergio Busquets after the 34-year-old decided to leave the club at the end of the last campaign and recently signed for MLS team Inter Miami

The rumoured top targets for Barcelona to fill the vacancy at pivot, Martin Zubimendi and Joshua Kimmich, have not yet been attracted to the club.

Following Busquets’ departure, Barcelona reportedly received offers to recruit numerous players from numerous teams and agents, with Sport reporting that Marcel Sabitzer was one of those players.

The Austrian international is unpopular at Bayern Munich and is extremely likely to leave this summer. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Manchester United.

Barcelona doesn’t now require a guy like Sabitzer because they already acquired Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City. The article seems to claim that the 29-year-old is a pivot, but he is not, and in terms of other areas of the midfield, he is no better than the choices presently available at the club.

The search for a new pivot in Barcelona is likely to continue. Currently, Marcelo Brozovic, Dani Parejo, and Oriol Romeu are listed as their stated targets, although it is still unclear who they will actually sign this summer.
