With reports surfacing that Getafe were in talks with United, reports from Spain now claim that the deal has been agreed.

As timing would have it, after our last update, it has now been reported that Amrabat has passed his United medical.
His medical was completed this evening, and he should be announced as a Red Devil either this evening or tomorrow. He has signed his contract.
20:45 – Still no update on Sofyan Amrabat
With just over two hours remaining in the 2023 summer transfer window, there is still no update as to the completion of the Sofyan Amrabat deal.
It was made clear earlier today that United have a green to pay an £8.5 million loan fee for the player with a further £17 million option to buy next summer, but beyond the news that he has flown to England, there has been no further update.
United have until 11 pm to complete the deal, unless they submit a deal sheet in order to get a one extension to get the deal over the line.
19:00 – Lazio will not sign Mason Greenwood
Lazio will not be signing Mason Greenwood after the Italian window shuts.
They tried until the very final moments to agree a deal, but an agreement could not be reached before the deadline passed.
18:41 – Mason Greenwood’s future is still up in the air
Mason Greenwood has been heavily linked with a move to Italian club Lazio today, and although there is yet to be an agreement between all parties.
The Serie A deadline shuts off at 7 pm today, and so if an agreement is to be found, it has to be in the next 20 minutes – and this is not out of the question, according to Di Marzio.

17:28 – Jonny Evans re-signs for Manchester United
Jonny Evans has signed a one-year contract with United after he joined the squad for pre-season under Erik ten Hag.
With United set to see the back of Eric Bailly, Evans comes in as a fifth-choice option behind Raphaël Varane, Lisandro Martínez, Victor Lindelöf, and Harry Maguire.
This helps add both depth and experience to Ten Hag’s squad and technically becomes United’s sixth signing of the summer.
16:10 – OFFICIAL: Sergio Reguilon joins United on loan
It has been confirmed that Reguilon will be joining Manchester United on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season. Speaking on the move, he said:
“In life you have to be ready for everything and the chance to represent this great club with such an illustrious history is one that I could not turn down.
“Having spoken to the manager, I know what he needs from me, and I am ready to play my part in helping the team to achieve success.
“I know that I can contribute to Manchester United this season; I am ready to fight for this group and show everyone my qualities.”
Meanwhile, John Murtough, Manchester United Football Director, said:
“Once it became clear that we needed to bring in another left-back we assessed a number of targets and acted quickly to sign Sergio. He possesses all the required qualities to help us achieve our aims this season.
“He has good experience in both the Premier League and in European competitions, so he is ready to come into the squad and perform straight away.”
15:21 – McTominay to remain and Van de Beek interest from Turkey
Laurie Whitwell has reported that the decision has been made that Scott McTominay will remain at United this summer despite interest from Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, and Fulham. The club decided that even with Sofyan Amrabat arriving from Fiorentina, McTominay was too valuable to lose. Ten Hag is conscious of his midfield balance and sees the Scotsman as providing a unique profile.
The report also added that Galatasaray remain in talks with United for Donny van de Beek after a £1m loan bid was rejected. A deal could be struck after the English window closes, with the Turkish market remaining open until September 15 – although other clubs are also interested in the midfielder.
14:32 – Several updates to go through…
There have been several updates in the last hour with Deadline Day really kicking into gear.
Many journalists have followed reports from Romano about United agreeing on a deal to sign Amrabat on loan.
In Ten Hag’s pre-match press conference, he confirmed that Rasmus Hojlund will be available for selection against Arsenal and that Sergio Reguilon has trained today. He also addressed both Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat’s transfers, although was coy on his former midfielder.

Manchester United have confirmed the player’s signing for a reported £4.3 million
08:54 – Sergio Reguilon has signed his Manchester United contract
Sergio Reguilon is said to now have signed his Manchester United contract ahead of his loan move from Tottenham Hotspur.
This is according to The Athletic, who explain that a full announcement is expected later today.
Reguilon has signed for United on a one-year loan deal with the final paperwork being completed this morning – there is a January break clause in the loan.
Manchester United will cover Reguilon’s whole wages for the season, and will not pay a loan fee to Tottenham for the player.
08:37 – Manchester United sign Altay Bayındır
Erik ten Hag has signed his new backup goalkeeper to replace Dean Henderson under André Onana’s goalkeeping department.
At least, this is according to Fabrizio Romano, who as many know, rarely gets a transfer wrong once he declares his signature “here we go”.
After Henderson was confirmed as signing for Crystal Palace on Thursday, United will now confirm the acquisition of Bayındır from Turkish side Fenerbahce for a reported £4.3m.
08:30 – Manchester United only likely to sign two players
Manchester United are only likely to secure the signing of two players on deadline day, despite being heavily linked with three.
This is according to Samuel Luckhurst, who claims that only goalkeeper Altay Bayındır and left-back Sergio Reguilón are the “probable” players to sign for the club today.
United have been linked with Sofyan Amarabat all summer, and although there are rumours that United are working on a loan deal for the player, Fiorentina want to inset an obligation to buy clause.
08:27 – Scott McTominay still a Fulham target
Scott McTominay continues to be of major interest to Fulham, but his transfer there may be complicated.
Fulham have McTominay down as one of two players who can replace Portuguese midfielder João Palhinha.
Palhinha will fly to Germany today in anticipation of a move to Bayern Munich, but Fulham want to secure his replacement first before letting the midfielder sign for the German outfit.
This may mean that McTominay’s potential move could be rushed on Friday as if Fulham bid an amount deemed acceptable by United, they will only have a few hours to finalise his signature.
08:08 — Lazio offered Mason Greenwood
Lazio have been offered the chance to sign Mason Greenwood on deadline day.
Mason Greenwood will no longer player for Manchester United after it was announced last week that a mutual agreement had been made between the player and the club that it was best he parted ways with the club this summer.
A decision on Greenwood leaving for Lazio this summer is yet to be made – Greenwood has been linked to several Italian sides this window.
08:00 — What happened last night?
Thursday evening saw Manchester United confirm that two players have left the club on permanent transfers. Dean Henderson has joined Crystal Palace in a £15+5 million deal, while Teden Mengi joined Luton Town for an undisclosed fee with achievable add-ons and a high percentage sell-on clause.
In midfielder news, Fabrizio Romano revealed that United had approached AS Monaco to sign Youssouf Fofana on a loan deal with an option to buy, but the French club rejected the idea.
Long-term target Sofyan Amrabat is said to have rejected an approach from Fulham, who are also interested in United’s Scott McTomiany to replace João Palhinha, who may leave for Bayern Munich – Amrabat only wants to join The Reds.
United are expected to confirm the signing of Sergio Reguilón from Tottenham on a one-year loan deal on Friday morning. Donny van de Beek is on Inter Milan’s list as a potential option to help bolster their midfield.
Aside from transfer news, it was also confirmed that Alejandro Garnacho will wear the no.17 for Manchester United this season, upgrading from no.49. This leaves new signing Rasmus Højlund to take the no.11 shirt, should he wish.
