Man Utd edge closer to signing £26m star, personal terms already agreed

Posted by

Due to the impending departure of midfielder Donny van de Beek, Manchester United is getting closer to signing Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina, according to Football Transfers.

Due to their current financial situation, the Red Devils must sell before adding another member to their roster. Following the arrivals of Rasmus Hjlund, Andre Onana, and Mason Mount, United has spent £166 million on three new additions.

Erik ten Hag, who had a fantastic first season in which he won the Carabao Cup and qualified for the Champions League, is eager to strengthen his team for the upcoming season as he seeks to compete on all fronts.

The Dutch coach has reaffirmed his intention to increase depth and competition in each position across his team. Via the Mirror, he disclosed to Sky Sports:

We require doubling at every position due to the volume of games we must cover. We need competition, and dealing with injuries, suspensions, and player form is a constant. I need good players, but each player also needs to have the right attitude.

According to reports, Ten Hag wants to sign another central midfielder, and Amrabat has received a lot of attention. However, in order to raise further finances and make way for any new hires, United must dispose undesired players.

Offer deadwood

Ten Hag determines that Fred, Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay, and Van de Beek are all unnecessary. Maguire will be sold by Manchester United to West Ham for somewhere around £30 million. The 30-year-old will get his physical soon after training with the first team on Wednesday.

Real Sociedad are reportedly interested in signing Van de Beek, according to Football Transfers. The La Liga club is considering the idea of signing the Dutch midfielder on a loan agreement with a buyout option at the conclusion of the current campaign.

Also showing interest in Fred are Fulham and Galatasaray. It is rumoured that the Cottagers and Manchester United have resumed talks to sign the Brazilian midfielder.

Man United would be able to complete their projected move for Amrabat if they can obtain money through the sale of Maguire and the release of Fred and van de Beek.

According to the report, United are getting closer to signing the Fiorentina player because personal terms have already been agreed upon with the Moroccan international.

Amrabat, a midfielder from Morocco who is rated at £26 million by Transfermarkt, would be a great addition to United if they could finalise a deal. He made 49 games for Fiorentina in all competitions, helping the team to eighth place in the Serie A and the UEFA Europa Conference League final while contributing one assist.
