"In England.." - Sofyan Amrabat has made opinion on Premier League move clear amid Man Utd interest

"In England.." - Sofyan Amrabat has made opinion on Premier League move clear amid Man Utd interest

The Red Devils have emerged as frontrunners to sign the midfielder.

Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat has already made opinion clear on a move to the Premier League amid interest from Manchester United.

Amrabat, 26, has reportedly agreed personal terms with Manchester United as Erik ten Hag looks to add another midfielder to his ranks after agreeing a £60 million deal with Chelsea for Mason Mount.

The Morocco international has attracted interest from the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and clubs in Saudi Arabia after a series of eye-catching performances at the World Cup.

However, United have now emerged as favourites to land Amrabat's signature after allegedly reaching an "economic agreement" with him on Monday.

It is thought that Fiorentina would want at least €30 million (£26 million) for his services ahead of Amrabat's contract expiring in 2024.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are reportedly willing to double his current €37,000-a-week salary, with Ten Hag keen to reunite with the player after previously working with him between 2015 and 2017 at FC Utrecht.

And the industrious midfielder has already made his feelings on a move to the Premier League perfectly clear.

What did Amrabat say?

Speaking in an interview with The Times ahead of Fiorentina’s Europa Conference League final defeat to West Ham, Amrabat praised the Premier League, believing that it's high intensity would suit his style of play.

"Of course, the Premier League is a fantastic league, one of the strongest in the world. It would be nice to play there one day, but it’s not that I want only to go to England, because Spain is nice, Serie A is a nice league," said Amrabat.

"Football has changed a lot, it’s more physical, you have more to be an athlete, the tempo and intensity is higher. Of course, in England the intensity is very high, so I think it could suit me."
