Sofyan Amrabat’s future could be decided this week, United need to meet Fiorentina’s request

The future of Manchester United target Sofyan Amrabat could be decided this week, according to Corriere dello Sport (page 21).

The Red Devils recently confirmed the purchase of Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta, and they are now likely to prioritise the transfer of Amrabat.

The midfielder missed the friendlies at St James’ Park last weekend with a minor foot injury, but Fiorentina are keen to sort out his future at the earliest.

La Viola manager Vincenzo Italiano wants a settled squad ahead of the new season. The club have identified possible replacements for Amrabat.

Corinthians’ Fausto Vera and Sheffield United’s Sander Berge are on their radar, but it appears the latter could be on his way to Burnley instead.

The Red Devils are yet to make a formal bid to sign the Morocco international, but it is claimed that they need to meet Fiorentina’s request of €30m.

Amrabat could secure United transfer soon

United have already agreed personal terms with Amrabat, and the onus is now on them to negotiate a suitable transfer fee with Fiorentina.

The Serie A outfit are currently eyeing €30m for the ‘extraordinary’ star, but United are bound to propose to pay a lesser fee up front for him.

Meanwhile, Gazzetta dello Sport report that Juventus are keeping tabs on the Moroccan, but we believe the speculation could be agent-driven.

Amrabat’s representative could be trying to speed up negotiations between United and Fiorentina.

United could lodge a bid for Amrabat as soon as they offload Fred. The Brazilian is expected to leave the Red Devils by the end of the week.

Fred’s departure would also free up the number 17 shirt for new signing Rasmus Hojlund.
