David Ornstein has offered an update on Manchester United’s pursuit of Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat. Throughout the transfer window, the player has been connected with United, but the process appears to have halted recently. Now, near the end of the window, the journalist has revealed new information regarding the probable shift.
The Red Devils will make a loan offer.
After tracking the Moroccan midfielder for the majority of the transfer window, Manchester United is likely to make a late move for him. According to Ornstein, the three-time Champions League champions would now seek a loan deal for the “extraordinary” midfielder rather than a permanent contract. According to reports, the club’s administration made this decision while keeping the Financial Fairplay requirements in mind.
“Man Utd working on a deal to sign Sofyan Amrabat,” the dependable journalist posted on social media. Due to FFP, Manchester United hopes to sign a Fiorentina midfielder on loan rather than on a permanent basis. Ryan Gravenberch is one alternative, but Morocco International is the major priority. “27-year-old wants to leave Old Trafford.”
Erik ten Hag’s team is in desperate need of a midfielder. Several candidates have been mentioned during the transfer window, the most recent being Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch. Despite their interest in the Dutch international, the Athletic’s writer disclosed that Amrabat remains the priority to improve the midfield.
Amrabat Wants to Join United
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Fiorentina man is keen on joining the Premier League giants this summer and has been waiting for the move to be finalized since the end of June and will continue to do so until the transfer market closes. The Moroccan international has made his ambitions clear, and as a result, he has turned down proposals from other teams this summer in order to join the Red Devils.
The 27-year-old will not play for the Italian club’s first squad until a final decision is made. He has been kept out of their squad for their forthcoming encounter against Rapid Wein, and he will not even train with the first-team players, according to sources.
