Manchester United will need to handle three separate parts in order to secure Erik ten Hag’s next signing this transfer window.
However, the move is complicated. United, on the three signings mentioned above, have spent in excess of £150 million, which eats up pretty much their entire summer budget.
Fiorentina, Amrabat’s current club, are said to be asking for a fee in the region of around £20-25m for the services of the Moroccan international, a price United simply cannot afford right now.
Therefore, as has been mentioned in the media, the Red Devils have changed their summer policy to a “sell before we buy” tactic in order to raise funds for what is expected to be Ten Hag’s final summer acquisition.
There are two players who currently look set to leave the club this summer – Brazilian international Fred, and Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek.
Fred has been continuously linked with a move to Turkey this summer, with Galatasaray keen on signing the player, while Van de Beek is reportedly in negotiations with Real Sociedad.
United, after initially asking for £17m for Fred, have ‘lowered’ this price, and are now deeming a fee of around £13m as acceptable compensation for losing the player’s services.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, both of these deals are ‘crucial’ in order for United to secure Amrabat.
Amrabat is said to have already agreed on personal terms with United, so, therefore, the club must handle three moving parts in order to sign him – they must settle on a fee with Fiorentina for the player while also making sure they raise enough money from selling Fred and Van de Beek to actually purchase Amrabat.
Whether or not this goes through, only time will tell.
