Manchester United have agreed a deal with Fiorentina to sign Sofyan Amrabat on an initial loan deal with there being a buy clause in the midfielder’s contract

Fabrizio Romano was the one to break the story and many credible journalists followed shortly with the information.

The deal is a boost to Erik ten Hag, who will be aiming to further bolster the centre of midfield following a sluggish start to the Premier League season for United.

It has been well reported that there is an £8.5 million loan fee that The Reds will be paying the Italian club for Amrabat’s services this season.

United were initially interested in buying the midfielder this summer but had to revert to a loan move because of their inability to sell players favorably this summer. Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire both remain at the club despite their bit-part roles in Ten Hag’s team.

However, in a year’s time, United could want to make the move for Amrabat permanent. Romano has stated that there is a buy clause for June 2024 in the contract worth £17 million plus £2.5 million in add-ons if United want him to stay long term.

He will join the likes of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and Mason Mount as options to play alongside Bruno Fernandes in the midfield.

Asked about the midfielder in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Arsenal game, Ten Hag remained coy. “There are so many rumours, but it’s nice, heh?” he said.

“I can’t tell because I don’t know. When we have news, we will tell you.”

Although, the Dutch boss did admit that Sergio Reguilon has trained with the United squad ahead of the Arsenal clash.

“He’s here. He trained. He will be available,” said the manager.

“He’s a very experienced player, played for big clubs, already played a lot of La Liga and Premier League games, he has a very good background, he can play very intense football, we are happy.

“We had a problem with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia injured, we responded well in that emergency situation.”
