Brazil legend Dunga has urged Manchester United linked Sofyan Amrabat to consider staying at Fiorentina.

Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat is waiting for his future to be resolved.

Fabrizio Romano reported via YouTube that Amrabat is prepared to fight to secure a transfer to Manchester United.

However, United are yet to submit a bid, while Amrabat has not been included in Fiorentina’s last couple of squads.

Amrabat can still have Fiorentina future

There is a risk Amrabat is waiting around for a Manchester United offer which may simply never arrive.

World Cup winning midfielder Dunga has urged Amrabat not to dismiss the option of staying put in Florence. He played for Fiorentina between 1988 and 1992.

Speaking to TMW, Dunga said: “He seems to want to leave, but he must understand that it will be difficult for him to find the passion and love of the people of Florence elsewhere.

“Here they make you feel important, he must understand if it is worth changing team. I stayed at Fiorentina as long as I could. I’ve always felt the love and soul of the people: here it’s not just football, it’s a matter of love, I repeat, even those who leave stay here with their hearts.

Asked if Fiorentina and Amrabat can still be a match, Dunga responded: “Definitely yes, he’s a champion. The way he played last year is still convenient for him.”

Out of Amrabat’s hands

Fabrizio Romano wrote on Twitter at the start of August that Sofyan Amrabat had decided he wanted to move to Manchester United, and had already made up his mind weeks earlier.

His patience will be being tested to the limit. United have a lot to accomplish in the final few days before the transfer deadline, and it’s unclear where Amrabat fits among the club’s priorities.

If a deal cannot be done, then it is a shame for all concerned, except Fiorentina supporters.
