Australian international, Marcel Sabitzer, has been signed by Bayern Munich and will remain with the club until 2025.

The Bundesliga champions (Bayern Munich) disclosed this in a statement issued on their website on Monday.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder will wear the Number 18 shirt.

“Marcel Sabitzer offers everything that an FC Bayern player needs,” Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern CEO was quoted by the club’s website.

“On top of that, he won’t need long to settle in as he’s already well-acquainted with the philosophy of our coach Julian Nagelsmann.”

Board member for sport, Hasan Salihamidzic said, “We’re very happy to have brought Marcel Sabitzer to FC Bayern.

“Marcel is a very good footballer, he has a great mentality, he’s very ambitious and he carried responsibility on and off the pitch as captain of RB.

“Our coach knows him very well and what a leader he is. We’re looking forward to having him.”

Speaking on his move, Sabitzer said, “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to play for FC Bayern. As a child my Bayern jersey was my pride and joy – I got a new one at Christmas every year. I’ll give everything for this club, I want to win as many matches as possible and of course collect lots of titles.”

Sabitzer began his professional career at FC Admira Wacker Mödling before joining Rapid Vienna, where he earned his move to RB Leipzig.
