Possible double deal: Glazers eye Man Utd moves for “monster” and “top talent” before deadline

Posted by

It has been suggested that Erik ten Hag could be replaced by two new midfielders before the transfer deadline by Manchester United and its current owners, the Glazers.

Do Ryan Gravenberch and Sofyan Amrabat intend to join Manchester United?

Ryan Gravenberch, a midfielder for Bayern Munich, reportedly told his current employers that he wants to move to the Premier League in the face of interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

Furthermore, according to the publication, Manchester United is interested in signing Fiorentina’s enforcer Sofyan Amrabat, though any potential transfer will be contingent on sales. The possibility of both players showing up at Old Trafford during current transfer window, according to the report, is not excluded. However, it would depend on the terms of any agreement for Gravenberch, whether it be a permanent one or one that is only temporary, as well as his ability to start outbound transfers.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool and Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Gravenberch, who is valued by Bayern Munich at about £22 million.

Two contract offers have been placed on the table for the Netherlands international to consider as “showdown talks” between Gravenberch and Bayern Munich are scheduled to take place regarding his future at the club.

Amrabat may get a bid of between €25 and €30 million from Manchester United in the next days, according to La Nazione via Viola News. Amrabat and any other fugitive players at the club have received a warning shot from Fiorentina CEO Joe Barone, who stated:

“We’re always prepared for more entrances and exits. We can make anyone who is unhappy happy by the end of the market, if there is anyone.

How well suited are Ryan Gravenberch and Sofyan Amrabat to Manchester United?

It is simple to understand why Manchester United would want the Moroccan international to sit in front of their backline. Journalist Carlo Garganese once referred to Amrabat as a “monster” because of his prowess in the middle of the park.

According to Transfermarkt, Amrabat played for Fiorentina last season in 49 games across all competitions and assisted the team in reaching the Europa Conference League final.

The Moroccan international kept things organised in midfield and, according to WhoScored, managed to average an 89.8% pass success rate in Serie A the previous season.

In the case of Gravenberch, he has had difficulty getting much playing time as a starter since joining Bayern Munich. According to Transfermarkt, he appeared 33 times in 2022–2023 and registered one goal and one assist.

In the art of creating shots, Gravenberch excels when compared to his positional peers in the top five European leagues. He has completed 4.03 successful shot-creating actions over the past 365 days, placing him in the 93rd percentile at the time of writing, according to FBRef.

A move to Old Trafford to join Manchester United may be the perfect tonic to reinvigorate his career as he strives to realise his undeniable potential. Football Talent Scout – Jaceg Kulig dubbed him a “top talent” back in 2021.
