Man Utd chiefs now speeding up deal to sign “extraordinary” new midfielder for Ten Hag

Posted by

Following the underwhelming loss to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag is now trying to speed up a move for one of his top midfield targets, according to reports in Italy.

What are the most recent Manchester United transfer rumours?
Last week, 90min claimed that Manchester United’s inability to sell squad players to fund the projected transfer of Amrabat put the deal at risk of falling through. While Donny van de Beek’s impending loan move to Real Sociedad has slowed down due to both parties finding it difficult to come to an agreement on terms, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire have both been heavily linked with West Ham United this window but to no avail.

The humiliation they suffered at the hands of Tottenham, however, has’moved the cards,’ according to a fresh source, and Manchester United is now moving the deal for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat through more quickly than anticipated.

According to an update from La Nazione, distributed by Viola News, Manchester United may now make an offer of between €25 and €30 million for the Moroccan international within the next 48 hours. Prior to last weekend’s 4-1 victory over Genoa, Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone sent a warning to players who may be looking to leave the Serie A team this summer, saying, “We are always ready for additional entry and exits. By the close of the market, we can make anyone who is unhappy happy.

According to La Reppublica via Viola News, Jurgen Klopp has recently had “telephone contact” with the Huizen-born enforcer Amrabat, who earns £31,000 per week.

Would Amrabat be a nice addition to United?
Ange Postecoglou’s team dominated Manchester United last weekend in the middle of the park, especially in the second half of the game. At this point, it could be necessary for Manchester United to bring another holding midfielder to Old Trafford.

As a midfield trio, Mason Mount, Casemiro, and Bruno Fernandes have not yet found their groove. They also had chemistry issues in their home opener triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers, which the Red Devils fortuitously won 1-0 courtesy to a Raphael Varane header.

Amrabat, who was described as “extraordinary” by former Spain coach Luis Enrique and mentioned by Football Italia through talkSPORT, would help Ten Hag put some steel in the engine room.

According to Transfermarkt, Amrabat played 49 times for Fiorentina in all competitions and recorded one assist during the previous season. Amrabat has shown that he can effectively initiate offensive moves from the base of his current employers’ midfield by maintaining a pass accuracy of 89.8% in Serie A over the season of 2022–2023.

According to FBRef, the Moroccan international made 60 successful contributions for Fiorentina in the Italian top division, including 23 blocks and successful tackles and interceptions, offering genuine security in front of his backline.
