BORUSSIA Dortmund are reportedly close to finalizing a deal with former Man Utd star Marcel Sabitzer.
The 29-year-old Australian midfielder made 18 appearances for the Red Devils last season after being loaned out by Bayern Munich.
Sabitzer, signed to replace the injured Christian Eriksen, failed to persuade Erik ten Hag to make his move permanent.
Now transfer experts Fabrizio Romano and Florian Plettenberg claim Dortmund are ready to announce Bayern Munich playmaker in a £16million transfer.
Sabitzer previously played for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich have spent £13million to sign him in 2021.
However, Sabitzer had problems with his form at Bayern and was considered overwhelmed after 54 games for the club.
He was loaned to Man Utd in January with intentions to join in a £22m deal at the end of the campaign.
Dutch tactician Ten Hag is said to have been an admirer but they have since added Mason Mount to their ranks for £60million.
Meanwhile, Dortmund are keen to strengthen their midfield following the departure of Jude Bellingham.

The England international signed a sum of £113million earlier this summer.
Sabitzer is considered the perfect replacement for her former talisman.
Should he join Dortmund, he will join a select group of players who have played for both clubs, including Raphael Guerreiro, Mario Götze and Mats Hummels.
