Sofyan Amrabat wants another opportunity to prove his worth, Man Utd prepared to let him go

Manchester United are prepared to part ways with midfielder Sofyan Amrabat when his season-long loan deal from Fiorentina concludes this month, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Moroccan star joined the Red Devils on loan from the Serie A outfit last summer. The club paid a hefty loan fee of €10 million with an option to buy him for €20m + €5m in add-ons.

Amrabat initially started his loan spell from the left-back position before moving into defensive midfield. His performances were not up to the mark and he was dropped soon after.

The 27-year-old had to wait until May for another run of starts. With Casemiro playing in central defence due to an injury crisis, Amrabat got the chance to impress manager Erik ten Hag.

After solid performances against Arsenal and Newcastle United, Amrabat was rewarded with a starting role in the FA Cup final where he had a passing accuracy of 93 per cent.

Casemiro was only on the bench against Manchester City and he was eventually left out of the squad after picking up a muscle injury during the warm-up before the final.

Corriere dello Sport now report that Amrabat wants another opportunity to prove his true worth, having failed to secure adequate minutes under Ten Hag in the recent season.

However, United do not share the same opinion and they are not convinced despite his late season form.

Amrabat, who was described as a ‘world-class‘ player by Morocco head coach Walid Regragui, is now likely to return to Florence when his loan contract expires at the end of June.

Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade has the desire to keep him, but Galatasaray are pushing for his signature. Amrabat would be open to the prospect of playing in the Super Lig.
