According to the reputable Italian outlet Fiorentina.it, Manchester United have shown a strong interest in Amrabat and has managed to reach an economic agreement with the talented Moroccan international. The potential cost of the transfer could exceed €30 million, signifying the club’s commitment to bolstering their midfield options this summer.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, reportedly has a limited budget for new signings, with half of it reserved for the impending Mason Mount transfer. However, the club seems determined to add more than just one midfielder to their ranks at Old Trafford, with a new striker and goalkeeper also high on their priority list.

Having set their sights on Sofyan Amrabat, a standout performer during the Qatar World Cup, Manchester United aims to strengthen their midfield further. The Red Devils previously attempted to sign the 26-year-old on loan with an option to buy in January, but Fiorentina rejected the mid-season proposal.

Nevertheless, with Amrabat’s contract set to expire in just over a year, Fiorentina is expected to entertain offers during the upcoming transfer window. Other top clubs, including Barcelona, had expressed interest in the midfielder as a potential replacement for Sergio Busquets. However, recent reports suggest that Barcelona will not pursue a deal due to registration constraints and the required €30 million transfer fee.

This turn of events has opened the door for other clubs to make contact and entice Amrabat to consider a move elsewhere. Atletico Madrid and AC Milan have shown a strong interest in securing his services, with competition also emerging from Saudi Pro League sides.

Manchester United has intensified their pursuit of Amrabat, who previously played under the guidance of Erik ten Hag at FC Utrecht. The club has made significant progress by agreeing on personal terms with the player, offering him a salary that would effectively double his current earnings. The final step in the process involves reaching an agreement with Fiorentina regarding the transfer fee.

Reinforcing the midfield has emerged as a top priority for Manchester United this summer, with uncertainties surrounding the futures of Scott McTominay, Fred, and Donny van de Beek, who may be offloaded to generate funds. While the Mason Mount transfer saga has dominated the club’s transfer rumors, the potential departures and the aging profiles of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen suggest that Manchester United may require an additional midfield presence alongside Mount.

Sofyan Amrabat, with his exceptional qualities, represents an intriguing option. The tenacious Moroccan midfielder possesses excellent playmaking abilities, dictating the game from a deeper position with his vision and range of passing. He could prove to be an ideal partner for Casemiro in the heart of Manchester United’s midfield. The club’s willingness to invest at least €30 million in the 26-year-old remains to be seen
