“The truth” about Man United transfer rumours clarified as midfielder move now “cold”



| Last Updated:


Italian media has revealed “the truth” surrounding Sofyan Amrabat’s future, confirming that he will not stay at Manchester United next season.

Manchester United paid an £8.5 million loan fee to bring in Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina during the final days of the 2023 summer transfer window, but the move has not paid off like many thought it would.

Erik ten Hag‘s club had a £20 million buy-option inserted into his loan contract as they thought that the Moroccan international would perform to high standards and establish himself as part of Ten Hag’s side, but this has not happened.

According to Calcio Mercato, United have now communicated that this option will not be triggered and that he will return to Fiorentina once his one-year contract with the Old Trafford club expires on 30 June.

Rumours circulating suggest that Fiorentina are now worried that Amrabat’s poor performances in the Premier League have significantly lessened his transfer value and that they will now try and move him on this summer.

Although AC Milan has been touted as a potential option, the chances of the move now coming to fruition are now “cold”, with Milan looking for other options in light of his season at United.

Amrabat is, however, admired by Juventus, who are considering two options to bring him in. The first is a loan, but with Amrabat’s Fiorentina contract expiring in 2025, this would mean he would have to renew.

The second is that they are considering a player-swap deal to bring Amrabat in, with Brazilian and former Liverpool midfielder Arthur heading the other way. Amrabat is said to be open to the move.
