Manchester United target Sofyan Amrabat set to leave Fiorentina 'soon' as manager makes admission

Manchester United target Sofyan Amrabat set to leave Fiorentina 'soon' as manager makes admission

Man Utd could finally complete a deal.

Morocco boss Walid Regragui has said that midfielder Sofyan Amrabat will complete a transfer 'soon' amid links to Manchester United.

The 24-year-old midfielder starred during the recent World Cup in Qatar, being named in the Team of the Tournament by FIFA.

He was subsequently linked with a move to Liverpool, and Foot Mercato claimed that manager Jurgen Klopp spoke with the player's representatives to convince Amrabat to commit to the Reds.

It is claimed he decided on a move to Atletico Madrid, but that has not yet happened.

Speaking earlier this year, the player's brother, former Watford forward Nordin Amrabat, told Voetbal Primeur (via Manchester Evening News): "I can name three clubs who were concrete in the last two or three days of the transfer window.

"Manchester United wanted a loan with an option to buy deal, Fiorentina rejected."

Erik ten Hag completed a loan move for Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on transfer deadline day in January. But various sources have claimed that United will not be turning that deal into a permanent one, meaning they are on the lookout for a new midfielder.

They have already launched a £40 million bid for Chelsea's Mason Mount, but the Blues want £75 million to sell the England star.

One other option could be Amrabat, who is said to have been a 'long-standing target' by the MEN - and Morocco's manager has said a move to another club is close.

Amrabat move 'close'

The midfielder played in Fiorentina's 2-1 Europa Conference League final defeat to West Ham last Wednesday.

Subsequently, he received a call-up to the Morocco national squad for their upcoming fixtures this month - but Regragui has confirmed that Amrabat will play no part.

He said (as per Calciomercato): "I have decided to let him go, he will not play.

"He has played so many games this year, I don't want to risk him, especially as he will soon sign with a new club."

Earlier this month, Amrabat stated that it would be 'nice to play in the Premier League' - and United could potentially seal a move for him if they can fend off interest from Atletico and Barcelona.
