And now Bild have reported that the Red Devils are keen to bring the midfielder to the club in the summer window.
Sabitzer has made it clear to Leipzig he would like to leave at the end of the season and he appears to be eyeing a move to England.
Since signing with the German outfit in 2014, he has played 219 times and scored 50 goals.
He has also spearheaded the club’s charge up the table as they are now challenging for the Bundesliga title.
Leipzig currently sit second in the German top flight, four points off perennial winners Bayern Munich.
However, a number of their key players are being linked with moves away in the summer.
Dayot Upamecano has already agreed to join rivals Bayern at the end of the campaign.
And Upamecano’s central defensive partner Ibrahima Konate could also be on his way to Liverpool as the Reds look to be closing in on his signature.
