Fiorentina will face Newcastle United today and Sofyan Amrabat is not part of the Italians’ squad to face the Magpies.
In fact, reports indicate that the player has not even traveled to England to take part in the pre-season tour for the Viola.
As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), Amrabat has not traveled to the UK to feature in the Sela Cup.
However, by now it is clear, he will ‘gladly take a plane’ to England in the next few days, but ‘Manchester’ as the destination, to move to United.
The Rome based media outlet claim Fiorentina are open to selling their prized asset to the Red Devils but need certain figures to be met first.
It is stated that anyone who wants to complete the signing knows the price slapped by Rocco Commisso on the Moroccan defensive midfielder.
Corriere dello Sport state the Serie A side are looking to get a fee of around 25-30 million euros to sell the Atlas Lions star this summer.
It must be remembered that Amrabat’s current deal with Fiorentina will expire in less than a year but the Italians are not worried and want the asking fee to be met.
For now, the 26-year-old has not left for England and is waiting for news from Man Utd to eventually travel.
