Manchester United is reportedly considering a significant £30 million bid for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, according to claims made by The Mirror. The Premier League club is actively evaluating potential additions to bolster their squad, with Erik ten Hag’s side on the hunt for a striker, with Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund being the top priority on their shortlist. However, their focus extends to strengthening their midfield as well, with Sofyan Amrabat emerging as a candidate.
The report indicates that Manchester United is edging closer to sealing a hefty £60 million deal for Rasmus Hojlund, and once that is finalized, they will explore the viability of pursuing a move for Amrabat. Their spending power can be further bolstered by offloading fringe players who are not part of the club’s immediate plans.
Erik ten Hag, the United manager, is said to be operating with a net budget of approximately £120 million, making strategic player sales a crucial factor in enhancing their financial capabilities. So far, Manchester United has already secured around £20 million from the sales of Anthony Elanga to Nottingham Forest and Alex Telles to Al Nassr.
Several other players have been earmarked for potential departures, including Eric Bailly, Dean Henderson, Fred, and Donny van de Beek, who have been informed they can leave the club. Moreover, the club is open to considering offers for key figures such as Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, but only if the right offers materialize. West Ham has been told they must offer £40 million for the services of Scott McTominay, the Scotland midfielder who still has two years left on his current contract with Manchester United.
Amidst these developments, sources within Manchester United have confirmed that Sofyan Amrabat, the defensive midfielder and an instrumental member of Morocco’s national team during their World Cup run to the semi-finals, features prominently on their shortlist of potential midfield reinforcements. The Moroccan international has caught the attention of Manchester United, and his acquisition could add valuable depth and quality to their midfield ranks.
