Fee lowered – Man Utd have to seal £21m signing this week – Report

Amrabat Fiorentina

Manchester United might be forced to wrap up the signing of Sofyan Amrabat this week, with Fiorentina reportedly losing patience with their waiting game.

United have been monitoring the situation of the Morocco midfielder since the start of the summer, with multiple reports suggesting there’s already an understanding between the Red Devils and Amrabat concerning personal terms.

In fact, their interest stretches back to January. As per his brother, Nordin Amrabat, who played in the Premier League for Watford, United tried to sign the 27-year-old in the winter window but couldn’t meet the conditions set by Fiorentina.

The English club only made an offer in the final “two or three days” of the window. Barcelona were also in the running until the final hours of the deadline day.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (press image provided below) say La Viola don’t want a repeat of the late January drama and have set a deadline of Friday for Man Utd to turn their interest into a solid offer.

They want to resolve his future before the end of this week and plan how they want to move forward in the dying embers of the window accordingly.

It is understood Fiorentina have reportedly softened their stance on the potential transfer fee, lowering their demand from 30 million euros to 25 million euros (£21m) plus bonuses.

The ball now appears to be in the court of the dynamic defensive midfielder’s suitors. Alongside United, who are being pushed by Erik ten Hag to sign his former FC Utrecht player, Liverpool are viewed as an interested party despite the recent arrival of Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo.
