Man Utd receive boost in signing ‘world-class’ star for €10m less

According to Corriere dello Sport (page 5), Manchester United will need to reach an agreement on a loan deal with a binding buy clause in order to capture Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

Throughout the summer, the Moroccan has been strongly connected with a move to Old Trafford, and yesterday the club made a loan request that was declined.

As of now, it is known that the Serie A club will not accept a direct loan agreement for the 27-year-old and will require an obligatory buy clause of more than €20 million.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Amrabat turned down the chance to sign with Steve Cooper’s team this week even though Nottingham Forest had agreed to pay a comparable transfer fee.

To acquire Amrabat, United will face challenging talks.
United put forth a €2 million loan offer for Amrabat on Wednesday. They proposed paying a portion of the sum up front and the balance following the January transfer window.

They did, though, also put forth a break clause at the start of the year. Therefore, the Serie A team would just need €1m to be secured. This bid, in our opinion, was disrespectful.

Fiorentina made the correct decision in rejecting United’s offer. Now it is up to the leadership to agree to the Florence team’s requests and sign the “world-class” player.

The Moroccan was originally valued at roughly €30 million, but La Viola has decreased that estimate by €10 million. They do, however, demand an assurance that they will be paid.

Due to their Financial Fair Play issue, United are currently cash-strapped. However, they must quickly find a solution if they don’t want Amrabat to continue playing for the Serie A club.

Forest has already made a bid of €20 million, and Fiorentina is not going to accept anything less. Amrabat might be more likely to join United on loan with a mandatory buy clause.
