Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat expected to sign for new club amidst Manchester United links
Sofyan Amrabat, who plays for Fiorentina, is expected to sign for a new club in the ongoing transfer window amidst links to Manchester United.
The Red Devils had enquired about acquiring the midfielder’s services in January. As things stand, this summer, Erik ten Hag is looking to bolster the engine room at the Old Trafford side.
“I decided to let him go, he won’t play. He’s played a lot of games this year, I wouldn’t want to risk that, especially as he’ll be signing with a new club soon.”
Amrabat joined up with the Atlas Lions recently. The midfielder started as the African nation took on Cape Verde, with the match ending in a 0-0 draw. However, the 26-year-old did not play against South Africa.
Fiorentina suffered multiple heartbreaks in the 2022/23 campaign. The Florence-based club first lost the Coppa Italia final versus Inter Milan. Then, West Ham United beat them in the UEFA Europa Conference League final.
Amrabat was a key player for the Viola throughout last season. The midfielder was also pivotal as Morocco made it to the semi-finals in the 2022 World Cup.
Man United signed Casemiro in the summer of 2022 from Real Madrid. The Brazil international has been key to Erik ten Hag’s plans at the Old Trafford side.
In the previous campaign, the Red Devils struggled to get positive results in the absence of the 31-year-old. The likes of Scott McTominay and Fred were unable to provide adequate cover in the absence of the five-time Champions League winner.
