Marko Arnautovic has what it takes to step up to the plate and play for Manchester United, his Austria team-mate Marcel Sabitzer says.
The 29-year-old West Ham ace is being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his firepower, while the player has also said he wants to play Champions League football.

Whether a move goes through at some point remains to be seen, but Sabitzer believes Arnautovic is good enough and deserves a crack with the Reds. “Marko is a great guy,” Sabitzer told Omnisport.
“I get along well with him and we have played together for a long time with the national team.
We are good friends and once went on holiday together. I like him a lot and I think he feels the same way about me.
“Everybody can see that he has athletic qualities. He had a lack of maturity and luck in Germany and I think he knows that.
“But his performances in England the past few years have demonstrated his real class and I can see the same in terms of the national team.
“That’s why I believe that he can make another step forward and play a major role there [at Manchester United]. I cross my fingers for him.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
