Man Utd and Fiorentina have apparently reached an agreement to sign Moroccan international. The clubs have agreed for Sofyan Amrabat transfer, and the midfielder will soon join the Red Devils.
Throughout the summer, there has been persistent talk about the 27-year-old, but it is believed that Manchester United has always been in charge of the matter.
According to trade specialist Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs have reached an agreement, and Amrabat is on his way to England for a physical.
Romano claims that the deal will be a €10 million (£8.6 million) loan with a purchase option worth €20 million (£17.1 million) and €5 million (£4.3 million) add-ons during the summer transfer window.
Discussions between the two clubs are said to have heated up late last night and early this morning, and it appears that a deal is now on the verge of being finalized by both clubs.
Man Utd and Fiorentina agree deal for the Moroccan Midfielder
Liverpool, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid are among the other clubs said to be interested in the Moroccan. The Moroccan midfielder has helped his country reach the World Cup semi-finals in 2022.
Amrabat, on the other hand, is said to be dead set on joining Manchester United.
The former FC Utrecht youth player will leave Fiorentina. He made 107 appearances across all competitions, including 49 during the 2022–23 season.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding his future, Amrabat has yet to appear for the Italian club this season.
During the pre-match press conference on Friday, Erik ten Hag told reporters, “I can’t tell because I don’t know.”
“We will notify you when we receive new information.”
Amrabat will strengthen the midfield, where Mason Mount has already been injured. On the other hand, Scott McTominay is expected to stay despite late interest from Fulham.
Altay Bayindir was confirmed as a new Manchester United player on Friday morning. He is expected to be in the squad for Sunday’s match against Arsenal.
Ten Hag also revealed that Sergio Reguilon had trained with the Red Devils ahead of his loan move from Tottenham.
