Star has ‘agreement’ to join Man Utd, pressed for transfer after £34.3m move blocked in winter – Report

Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

Fiorentina want to get rid of Sofyan Amrabat as soon as possible and the player has an agreement with Manchester United.

As per today’s version of La Gazzetta Dello Sport (news image provided below), the Moroccan international had a fantastic World Cup campaign and had the opportunity to join Barcelona in a deal worth £34.3m in winter.

Transfer: Deal close – £42.7m player now moving to sign for Man United

However, Fiorentina opted to block the move and promised him that he will be allowed to leave in the summer transfer window.

Now, the Viola are pressing to sell him but the dilemma this summer is that ‘slowly the suitors have slipped away or are retreating’.

Gazzetta claim Amrabat has an agreement to join Man Utd but the Premier League giants have not decided to ‘sink the blow’ as yet and the Italian cub have long ‘lost patience’

The 27-year-old warmed the bench on the opening day of the Serie A, moreover, he has been excluded from the UEFA Europa Conference League squad.

Therefore, the Atlas Lions star did not even travel to Austria as Fiorentina collided against Rapid Wien. New loan signing, Arthur Melo, started in the defensive midfield role.

At the moment, United only have a single proper DM in the form of Casemiro but the veteran will turn 32 in a few months and he was weak in the defeat against Tottenham last weekend.

So, Ten Hag must bring in another play breaker before the window closes next week. Should he splash the cash to finally sign Sofyan Amrabat?
