Sofyan Amrabat hopes that his performances for Manchester United this season will persuade the club to sign him permanently next summer.
The Moroccan international is on loan from Fiorentina to the Red Devils, but the English club has the option to purchase him permanently at the end of the 2023-24 season.
Amrabat came in as a late replacement against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday before making his entire debut in Tuesday’s EFL Cup victory over Crystal Palace. The 27-year-old has stated his wish to join Erik ten Hag’s team on a permanent basis, but he is now focused on producing the greatest performances for his loan club. “Of course, I’d love to.”
“Of course, I’d like to stay here, but I don’t look too far ahead.” “Today, I am a Manchester United player,” Amrabat is quoted as saying by The Sun.
“The only thing I can do is give everything I have in order to help the team.” “I hope we have a fantastic season, that we can win something, and then we’ll see what happens later.”

According to a recent source, Liverpool came within hours of signing Amrabat in the closing moments of the transfer season, but the midfielder has stated that he has always wanted to play for Manchester United.
“The window opened for me after the last game I played for the club.” A lot of clubs, a lot of talking, but it was clear to me that I wanted Manchester United,” he added.
“They were difficult months for me, long, long months.” However, it was good on the final day that I registered here.
“I have a lot of confidence because I see how much quality we have.” I believe we were unlucky in terms of injuries.
“It’s difficult for any team when there are a lot of injuries.”
I see a lot of talent, we have a good coach, and we have fantastic fans, therefore I believe we can do great things.
But in the end, you need to demonstrate it on the pitch, not just by talking; you need to put in the effort. Hopefully, we can come to a very pleasant conclusion.

Due to the team’s injury crisis, Amrabat has so far played as a left-back for Man United, and he has disclosed that he is at ease in that position.
“It was with the manager seven years ago at Utrecht, I was 19, 20 years old and he asked me to play there and I did it, so he knew I could play there,” he said.
Man United are likely to pay €10 million (£8.6 million) for the loan, with a buy option for next summer worth €20 million (£17.1 million) and €5 million (£4.3 million) in add-ons.
