Fabrizio Romano tips midfielder to be 'a Man Utd player' next summer as permanent deal expected

Fabrizio Romano tips midfielder to be 'a Man Utd player' next summer as permanent deal expected

The transfer expert has had his say.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano already believes one Manchester United player will be signed permanently next summer.

The Red Devils have had an unconvincing start to the Premier League campaign, having lost three of their opening six matches.

A narrow 1-0 victory over Burnley has brought Erik ten Hag some breathing space, but supporters remain sceptical about the club's current trajectory.

Fans were treated to a brief glimpse of summer loan signing Sofyan Amrabat, who came off the bench with just one minute of normal time left to play at Turf Moor.

And Romano reckons United are already plotting to make the 27-year-old's deal permanent next summer, after missing out on doing so during the transfer window.

Speaking on The United Stand YouTube channel, Romano said: "Usually if you spend €10 million on a loan deal, it means you want to sign the player the following summer.

"We know it was not possible to spend €30m last summer because of Financial Fair Play so it was crucial to find a creative solution.

"But if Amrabat will do what Amrabat is absolutely able to do, he will be a Man United player on a permanent transfer next summer. It depends on him, but that is the idea of the club.

That is all the more likely when considering the secret clause that Fiorentina inserted into his contract upon moving to Old Trafford which gives United a greater chance of signing the Morocco international.

Taking to Instagram after his debut against Burnely, Amrabat sent the following message to fans: "Amazing feeling to make my debut, happy with the win. Thanks for the warm welcome."
