It’s no secret that they need someone to step in for Casemiro when the Brazilian needs a break, and a player like Sofyan Amrabat would go a long way toward providing Erik Ten Hag with more choices.
Many rumors about a deal being close have been published in recent weeks, with some being refuted, and journalist Alfredo Pedullà took some time to clarify the situation around the Manchester United target, speaking to Passione Fiorentina on Twitch and relayed by Labaro Viola.
“Despite denials, Fiorentina and Manchester United have already spoken,” he claimed. What is the figure? We can surpass the €30 million mark. Suggestions from Saudi Arabia? These are old issues, such as the one with Osimhen. “He, like Onana and Hjlund, is a Ten Hag pick. Fiorentina will receive more than €30 million, possibly close to €35 million. If Amrabat left, Fiorentina may sign a strong midfielder, in my opinion.”
It remains to be seen whether Fiorentina truly receives that much money for the Morocco international, as prior rumors stated Manchester United was initially trying to undercut the Serie A side.
After all, it stands to reason that the Red Devils would prefer to spend as little as possible on the player, but the Italians would prefer to spend as much as possible.
