Manchester United have not ruled out the possibility of signing Marcel Sabitzer on a permanent deal from Bayern Munich this summer.
The Austrian star joined United in January in an emergency loan deal after the injury to Christian Eriksen.
The 29-year-old midfielder was impressive at Old Trafford, scoring three goals in 18 games but his loan deal expired on Friday as he returned to the Allianz Arena.

And Sabitzer made it clear that he would like to move to the Theatre of Dreams permanently and Bayern have set an affordable £17m asking price to sign the player.
But, Man United are on the brink of signing Mason Mount from Chelsea for an initial £52million deal.
That will further congest the midfield area and they are not currently planning on signing Sabitzer.
Meanwhile, Sabitzer will come into consideration if Manchester United get good offers for the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay.
Fulham are believed to be keen on signing the Brazilian star, who is going into the last year of his deal at Old Trafford. And United want £20m for the former Shakhtar Donetsk player.
McTominay is currently valued at around £30m and he’s attracted interest from West Ham United and Newcastle.
United could therefore raise up to £50m through the sale of both players and Sabitzer’s arrival would leave United with another £34m to spend.
