Defensive midfielders have been highly in demand in the current transfer window but Man Utd are yet to land their top target, Sofyan Amrabat.
The transfer saga has dragged on for months and it will be intriguing to see whether or not the Moroccan will move to Old Trafford from Fiorentina.
As per deadline day’s version of Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), Man Utd are in talks with the Viola to lure the African play breaker today.
At first, the Serie A side agreed a deal with Nottingham Forest but the player rejected the move. Now, the auction is between Fulham and United.
Fulham’s main holding midfield star, Joao Palhinha, is linked with a move to German champions, Bayern Munich.
In such a scenario, the Cottagers have come up with a proposal of 30 million euros (£25.7m), however, CdS claim that ‘Amrabat wants United’.
Erik ten Hag has been trying to capture the player on loan but after the solid offer from London, Corriere dello Sport claim Man Utd are now forced to agree a fee worth £25.7m to sign the former Feyenoord midfielder from the Italian side.
Amrabat has been waiting for the three-time European champions to complete his signing and because of that, he has trained alone and not featured for Fiorentina this season.
In all fairness, Man Utd should pay the £25.7m required to get the deal done. What do you think?
