Man Utd in the front row to sign Sofyan Amrabat, Fiorentina want €25m as fixed fee

Manchester United are in the front row to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat this summer, according to La Repubblica (print edition).

The Red Devils have already made three signings in Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund this summer. Amrabat could be the next player to join the club.

The midfielder was recently left out of the Sela Cup by Fiorentina due to a minor foot problem, and La Repubblica claim that the Moroccan is getting closer to an exit.

United are yet to make a formal proposal on the table, but they are still ‘in the front row’ to sign the 26-year-old, having already agreed personal terms with him.

It is known that Fiorentina want €30 million for their prized asset, but they could sanction his departure for an initial fee of €25m plus bonuses in the coming days.

United could focus on Amrabat after Rasmus Hojlund’s arrival

United have generally negotiated one deal at a time. They initially focused on purchasing Mount from Chelsea before opening talks with Inter Milan for Onana.

As soon as they secured his signature, the Red Devils stepped up discussions with Atalanta for Hojlund. The Dane was presented to the fans at Old Trafford today.

Amrabat is the next player on their radar. The ‘extraordinary‘ star is determined to make the switch, but United could delay his arrival until they offload a couple of midfielders.

Fred, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay have been linked with exits. Fred should be the most likely candidate to leave, having entered the last year of his contract.

Van de Beek could be the next player to head for the exit door. We would personally prefer to keep McTominay at the club unless there is a significant transfer offer.

Amrabat should be a top quality signing for United. The Utrecht graduate can play in multiple roles, but he is most comfortable operating from the number six position.

His arrival should provide strong competition for Casemiro. Amrabat is better than the Brazilian when it comes to passing accuracy and ability to control possession.
