Sabizter, 28, completed a shock deadline day move to Old Trafford after United discovered Christian Eriksen would be sidelined until May.
The versatile midfielder is likely to slot straight in the side next to Casemiro.
But Sabitzer can also operate further forward or on the wing.
It means Erik ten Hag will be tempted to thrust him straight into the action tonight against Nottingham Forest.
And the Dutchman is sure to heed warnings from Sabitzer’s agent about the Austrian’s expectations over game time.
Roger Wittmann helped to negotiate his client’s move to the Red Devils.
But he admits Sabitzer can be “unpleasant” if he’s left to rot on the bench.
The former RB Leipzig captain will be eager to express himself on the field as soon as possible.

And Wittmann adds Sabitzer turns into a “killer” when he gets the chance to play for his side.
Wittmann said: “He’s the most unpleasant person to be around when he’s not playing.
“He hates it when he loses. That’s the bottom line. Character-wise, the kid is a killer.
“That’s what players who always want to win look like.”
