Manchester United could strike the perfect deal by signing Sofyan Amrabat on loan

Manchester United could strike the perfect deal by signing Sofyan Amrabat on loan this summer.

The need for a top-class defensive midfielder at Manchester United is clear for everyone to see.

Erik ten Hag’s midfield is far too open, with Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount pushing forward, leaving Casemiro alone in the middle.

The 31-year-old has been run ragged at times, and United will get beaten by better teams on a consistent basis this season if Ten Hag fails to address this. Amrabat is the perfect man for the job.

However, the Red Devils face strong competition from Liverpool for the 27-year-old’s signature. Losing out to their bitter rivals in the race for the Moroccan would be inexcusable.

However, it seems like the perfect opportunity is about to present itself to Man United and Ten Hag regarding Amrabat.

Manchester United cannot afford to miss out on Sofyan Amrabat

It seems as though Fiorentina have softened their stance on the tenacious-tackling defensive midfielder.

They are reportedly now prepared to let Amrabat leave on a season-long loan, as long as the club that signs the Moroccan has an obligation to buy him next summer (Viola News).

This is a deal that United quite simply can’t afford to miss out on. The former Hellas Verona midfielder possesses all the attributes that Ten Hag’s side currently lacks in the middle of the park, and he is ideally suited to the physical nature and intense speed of Premier League football.

Amrabat is incredibly strong and mobile. He’s rapid, a superb tackler and man-marker and has the energy, stamina, dynamism and athleticism needed to take this United team to a whole new level.

Money is clearly tight at Old Trafford right now. If it wasn’t, Ten Hag would have already brought Amrabat to Man United.

And with that in mind, signing the Fiorentina ace on loan this summer with an obligation to buy him next year is the ideal transfer for the Red Devils.

Surely Man United will make a late move for him before the summer transfer window closes…surely?
