Erik ten Hag's reaction to Sofyan Amrabat question was telling as Man Utd ‘agree deal with Fiorentina’

Erik ten Hag's reaction to Sofyan Amrabat question was telling as Man Utd ‘agree deal with Fiorentina’

His reaction was telling.

Erik ten Hag’s reaction to being asked a question about Sofyan Amrabat was telling.

It’s been widely reported that United have agreed a deal with Fiorentina for midfielder Amrabat.

United will pay €10million (£8.5million) to take Amrabat on loan with an option to buy the player for €25million (£21.4million).

Fiorentina allegedly preferred a permanent deal but United are attempting to abide by Financial Fair Play regulations.

According to Sky Sports United’s director of football, Matt Hargreaves flew to Italy on Friday to get the deal over the line.

Amrabat has long been keen on a move to United, with the 27-year-old having not trained with Fiorentina’s first-team squad while his future remained unresolved.

Indeed, the Morocco international was not part of Fiorentina’s squad for their Europa Conference League play-off second leg against Rapid Vienna on Thursday amid speculation over his future.

But with the transfer not yet confirmed Ten Hag played down speculation on Amrabat’s future in his press conference.

As seen in the above video, upon a journalist suggesting Amrabat’s move to United was getting close, Ten Hag laughed, adding: “You know that? There are so many rumours.”

When asked about how he feels about the strength of his United squad the Dutchman added: “I think we have done good business.

“We constructed a strong squad and we are ready for the fight.”

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso revealed earlier this month they would allow the Moroccan to leave providing the deal suited the club.

“We told Amrabat that if he has an opportunity to leave, then we'll let him go,” he said, via the Mail Online.

“If this deal cannot be done, then he has two years left on his contract and will remain.

“There are many negotiations in progress. I don't want to name names. So wait 24 hours and then you'll know what happens.”
