Man United detected injury during Sofyan Amrabat’s medical prior to loan move from Fiorentina

Man United detected injury during Sofyan Amrabat’s medical prior to loan move from Fiorentina

Sofyan Amrabat will spend the 23/24 season on loan at Manchester United

Manchester United reportedly detected an injury during Sofyan Amrabat’s medical.

After spending the majority of the summer chasing Amrabat, it was confirmed on transfer deadline day that the Moroccan will spend the 23/24 season on loan at United.

However, it has been claimed that United found an injury during Amrabat’s medical.

According to The Athletic, the club detected a minor back injury during the medical.

As the problem was not considered serious, United decided to go ahead with bringing the midfielder to Old Trafford.

After Sunday’s dramatic 3-1 defeat by Arsenal, United boss Erik ten Hag explained why he decided to bring Amrabat to the club.


He said during his post-match press conference: “It was already, from the start of the season, one of my wishes to get another [number] six, a holding midfielder, in the squad because through the season you need that depth there.

“In that position we only had Casemiro who can play really well there. With others we have to make compromises but, with Sofryan Amrabat, we have another one.

Ten Hag added: “Also he can play alongside Casemiro because he can also play a little bit higher on the pitch. So it's very good to have him and I think he fits very good to Premier League football, to Champions League football. I think the demands are strong.

“He is very dynamic, he’s very good in the duels. So we are pleased that we have him at United and I think he will contribute to our high targets we set.”


Upon joining the club, Amrabat said: “It is a huge honour to become a Manchester United player. I’ve had to be patient for this moment but I’m someone who always listens to my heart and now I am representing the club of my dreams.

“I am a passionate player; I want to bring that energy to the squad, and I will put everything into every action I take for the team.”
