After days of speculation, Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has officially made the move to Borussia Dortmund.

Sabitzer, who got off to a rough start in Bavaria during the 2021/22 season, but was very strong in 2022/23, will make the move in an attempt to help the Ballack and Yellows prevent the Bavarians from winning a 12th consecutive title:

Sabitzer took advantage of an opportunity for more playing time with Bayern Munich during the Hinrunde of the last campaign and was so successful that he parlayed it into a loan with Manchester United for the second half of the season.

The Austria international clearly has a lot of gas left in the tank and is a proven commodity. Sabitzer will have every opportunity to help fill the void left in the Borussia Dortmund midfield after the exits of Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud:

Sabitzer’s tenure at Bayern Munich will be remembered differently by different people, but the 29-year-old was always a consummate professional and a hard worker.

Moving to Bayern Munich just was not a great fit for him in the end.
