Manchester United midfielder Sofyan Amrabat was unveiled as a Red Devils player earlier this week.

We reported yesterday how Sofyan Amrabat had been called up to Morocco’s international squad.

But there was still some uncertainty over whether he would head off with his country, as it was only yesterday that Amrabat was formally unveiled as a Manchester United player.

Even today, United were still concluding the formalities of Amarabt’s transfer, with his first official interview released.

Sofyan Amrabat travels

Manchester United have confirmed Sofyan Amrabat has travelled to join up with his Morocco teammates.

A club statement read “New signing Amrabat has travelled to link up with the Morocco squad.”

Morocco have two fixtures, an AFCON qualifier against Liberia on Saturday, and a friendly with Burkina Faso on Tuesday.

Fitness doubts eased

According to The Athletic, a minor back problem was detected during Sofyan Amrabat’s medical. It was not enough to prevent his move.

Nor is it anything serious enough to prevent him travelling for international duty. This had added to the uncertainty yesterday over whether he would join up with Morocco.

Amrabat has not played a lot of football lately, missing Fiorentina’s late pre-season games and early Serie A and Europa Conference League fixtures.

A couple of matches for his country could be useful for his match fitness, providing he comes through them unscathed.
