Manchester United appear to be on the verge of another major signing, which might have the greatest impact on getting the most out of Erik ten Hag’s squad…
Who is Manchester United bringing in this summer?
According to a story by the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, which was relayed by Fiorentina.According to it, Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat has already agreed to terms with the Red Devils and is awaiting their official bid.
Because of their personal advancement, the Viola is expected to accept a bid of roughly €25 million (£22 million), but they have yet to receive one.
The Moroccan midfielder is holding out for the famous English club, and appears to be only interested in them as their chase progresses. An ‘acceleration’ is expected soon, now that they have a deal in place for Rasmus Hojlund and can concentrate all of their efforts on a new target.
This would be in addition to their previous additions of Mason Mount and Andre Onana, as well as their new Danish striker.
How talented is Sofyan Amrabat?
Bringing in such a commanding figure to manage their engine room might have a game-changing impact on the rest of the squad, as they would be able to assert control over significantly more matches as a result of his abilities.
After all, the 26-year-old has played for both club and nation in the last year, with the latter garnering significantly more attention.
Especially given his role in Morocco’s historic journey to the World Cup semi-finals as the first African team to do so. Carlo Garganese, a journalist, would even go so far as to say:
“Amrabat is the tournament’s best center midfielder.” MONSTER”.
His 85% pass accuracy, 2.3 tackles, and 1.4 clearances per game were maintained throughout the campaign, and his tough-tackling and tenacious style were praised, according to Sofascore.
Bruno Fernandes, perhaps more than any other star, would be grateful to his boss for bringing in another steely midfielder to compliment his creativity.
He excelled last season with Casemiro right behind him, so having both the famous Brazilian and Amrabat would offer him entire freedom to do anything he wants.
The Portugal international is known for his desire to create, rarely looking back if an opportunity to generate a chance presents itself. As a result, he averaged 3.3 critical passes per game in the Premier League last season, resulting in 32 huge opportunities, the highest in the league. This was in addition to his 14 goals in all competitions.
Even Kevin De Bruyne couldn’t equal him in terms of creativity, creating only 31 great opportunities, but he concluded the season with twice as many assists (16) as United’s 28-year-old master (eight).
A dispute raged for long time over who was the superior player of these two attacking midfielders, but the relative strength of their sides has seen the 32-year-old come out in front after his recent triple success.
If Fernandes is given even more freedom to roam and create, his already impressive numbers are expected to skyrocket, with a club that has only gotten better over the summer.
Amrabat would be the hardworking foil to the former Sporting CP star’s explosive drive to score, and his addition might provide that extra element of solidity and reliability to allow him genuinely exceed City’s iconic Belgian.
