Manchester United make Sofyan Amrabat stance clear, £21 million decision confirmed



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have made their decision on Sofyan Amrabat ahead of what is expected to be a busy summer transfer window.

Amrabat, 27, joined the Reds on a season-long loan at the beginning of last term as Erik ten Hag looked to improve his midfield options.

However, the Moroccan international did not get many opportunities at Old Trafford. He played several games at left-back and started no Premier League games between January and May.

Yet, a strong end to the season led to Amrabat being picked to start the FA Cup final, which United won, and there was a belief that United might decide to keep the midfielder.

According to Muppetiers, the Reds are not planning to sign Sofyan Amrabat on a permanent deal this summer, and he is expected to return to Fiorentina.

United had an option to buy the midfielder for around £21 million after his season-long loan spell in the 2023/24 campaign.

Instead, United will be looking to strengthen their midfield zone with signings from elsewhere. Casemiro and Christian Eriksen are also expected to depart as well.

Several options have been linked to the club, such as Paris Saint-Germain star Manuel Ugarte, who is said to be keen on a move.

United have also been rumoured to be interested in Benfica teenager Joao Neves, but their tight budget this summer could impact any ambitious deals like that.

Other priorities include centre-back and striker, with United returning to pre-season training in two weeks.
