Manchester United Leading the Chase to Sign Sofyan Amrabat

Manchester United is emerging as the frontrunner in the race to acquire Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina ahead of the summer transfer window deadline. Reports suggest that Liverpool has withdrawn its interest, leaving the Red Devils with a clear advantage.

Amid the ongoing speculation surrounding his future, Amrabat is currently training alone at his Italian club and has been excluded from the squad for Fiorentina’s Europa Conference League playoff first leg against Rapid Vienna.

The midfielder, aged 27, was unused during Fiorentina’s Serie A opener against Genoa, indicating his desire for a move before the transfer deadline.

Over the past few weeks, Manchester United has been strongly linked with Amrabat. However, uncertainties persist regarding a potential deal, as the Red Devils may need to offload additional players to facilitate his arrival at Old Trafford.

According to the Daily Mail, a reported fee of £30m would be sufficient to secure the signing. Nevertheless, Erik ten Hag’s side must make at least one more significant sale to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.

Players such as Donny van de Beek, Eric Bailly, Brandon Williams, and Scott McTominay are among those currently linked with potential moves away from the club.

While Harry Maguire recently rejected a move to West Ham United, rumors indicate there remains a possibility of the center-back departing before the September deadline.

In anticipation of Maguire’s potential departure, Jonny Evans is reportedly close to signing a one-year deal to provide cover in defense. This move would also release funds for the acquisition of Amrabat.

Manchester United’s need for a new midfielder has been heightened by Mason Mount’s injury, which could sideline him for a significant period. Mount picked up the injury during the match against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Fiorentina has set a deadline of Friday for receiving offers for Amrabat, ensuring they have ample time to secure a suitable replacement.

Daniele Prade, the director of the Italian club, recently stated that no official bids have been received for the Moroccan midfielder despite the speculation. Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are also reported to be interested in his services.

Amrabat played a crucial role in Morocco’s journey to the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup. He showcased strong form throughout last season, making 49 appearances across all competitions, assisting Fiorentina in reaching the finals of the Europa Conference League and Coppa Italia.
