Manchester United on the brink of securing a £30 million deal for the highly-rated Fiorentina midfielder, Sofyan Amrabat. The 26-year-old Moroccan star has been turning heads with his standout performances for both club and country, most notably playing a crucial role in Morocco’s historic World Cup semi-final run in Qatar.
During the 2022-23 season, Amrabat was a vital asset for Fiorentina, propelling them to the finals of both the Europa Conference League and Coppa Italia. While the Italian outfit ultimately fell short against West Ham United and Inter Milan, their impressive campaign did earn them a return to the Europa Conference League next season.
However, it appears that Fiorentina will soon have to navigate their football journey without the talented midfielder. Journalist Alfredo Pedulla reveals that Manchester United and Fiorentina have been engaging in secretive negotiations through intermediaries, bringing them ever closer to finalizing the deal. Amrabat’s contract with Fiorentina has only one year remaining, although the club has the option to extend it until 2025.
Manchester United has shown a willingness to meet Fiorentina’s asking price, putting them ahead in the race to secure the player’s services. The Red Devils seem determined to fend off competition from Al-Ahli, who have also shown interest in Amrabat.
The Moroccan maestro’s potential move to Manchester United has captured the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide, and even Liverpool had been mentioned as possible suitors. However, Liverpool’s focus appears to have shifted to Southampton’s Romeo Lavia.
As United continues its spending spree this summer, they may need to make room in their midfield ranks. Fred and Donny van de Beek have emerged as candidates to depart the club, with Real Sociedad reportedly eyeing a move for Van de Beek. Fred, on the other hand, has garnered interest from Fulham and Galatasaray.
Amidst these exciting transfer dealings, Manchester United is wrapping up its pre-season preparations with upcoming matches against Lens and Athletic Bilbao. The Red Devils are poised to make a big splash with the signing of Sofyan Amrabat, adding another gem to their impressive roster. Stay tuned for more updates on this exhilarating transfer saga!
