After salary deal, Man Utd raid awaited to sign ex-Brugge player – Report

Old Trafford

Fiorentina are reportedly waiting for Manchester United to make their move for Sofyan Amrabat.

La Viola appear resigned to losing Amrabat, having already signed two midfielders in Arthur and Gino Infantino to fill his void.

The Vincenzo Italiano-led side wants to do more in this summer transfer window, and in order to raise funds for their next targets they are awaiting “the raid” for Amrabat this week, claims Alfredo Pedullua.

The Serie A side value their midfield engine at around £30m, and want United to advance negotiations for the former Club Brugge star.

The player is even more determined to see this transfer materialise, and has already reached an agreement on his salary with the Red Devils. Despite interest from West Ham and proposals from Saudi Arabian clubs on the table, Amrabat has just one club in his mind.

Erik ten Hag is very keen on reuniting with his former FC Utrecht talent. However, United, themselves are looking to first offload some of their outcasts and raise funds before tabling an offer for the Moroccan star. As per Fabrizio Romano, the Old Trafford outfit are expected to open formal talks “soon”, as Fred and Donny van de Beek are close to departing.

Now, West Ham, who hold an interest in Amrabat, might end up helping United in their pursuit by signing Scott McTominay, another midfielder at Carrington who is on the periphery of Ten Hag’s core squad.

According to The Guardian, the Hammers are planning a double swoop for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, and believe a package of £55m-£60m could convince United to sanction their sale. David Moyes admires both Maguire and McTominay and considering the situation surrounding Amrabat’s transfer, Ten Hag will be equally, if not more, hoping for the duo’s transfer.
