Man United hold ‘early talks’ for Serie A star but move likely to come after departures

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag claims Sofyan Amrabat can play in multiple positions.

Manchester United are waiting for midfield departures before moving for Sofyan Amrabat, talks held with Fiorentina

As per Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth, Manchester United held early talks with Fiorentina over midfielder Sofyan Amrabat but will not make a move until there are departures from that department.

Earlier in the day, Metro revealed that the Moroccan international has agreed on personal terms with United after rejecting Liverpool.

What it shows is that the Red Devils are waiting on a midfield departure or two before making a concrete offer to Fiorentina regarding his signature.

Talk about midfield departures and there could be two in the coming days. Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that United are looking to sell Fred with Turkish side Galatasaray keen on signing the Brazilian.

Galatasaray’s first bid for the 30-year-old was rejected a few days ago. They are preparing an improved bid this time around.

The Telegraph (subscription required) has revealed that West Ham United will make a move for Scott McTominay. They have a Declan Rice-shaped hole in the midfield that needs to be filled.

If things go to plan, it seems like McTominay and Fred will be sold this summer. It would be the end of the McFred midfield that was patented under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management. Things changed under Erik ten Hag and both players started seeing very less game time last season.

If United replace those two with Amrabat, it would be a great business. The Moroccan international is a deeper-lying midfielder who is excellent on the ball, reads the game well, is physically strong on tackles and aerial duels and can play in multiple positions.
