Manchester United’s pursuit of Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat has taken another twist as it seems the 27-year-old is forcing the issue with his current club.
According to a report from the Italian outlet Calciomercato, the Moroccan midfielder is not training with the Italian side as he bids to force his departure.
United are crying out for a midfield addition, particularly with the news that Mason Mount picked up an injury against Tottenham Hotspur and will miss games against Nottingham Forest and Arsenal.
What’s the latest with Amrabat
As mentioned, the midfielder isn’t training with the Italian side in a bid to force through a move away from the club.
The report further states that the midfielder is seemingly ‘following the process of a player about to be sold’, but the offer needed for the midfielder, believed to be £25 million, is yet to have been offered.
The Italian outlet claims that the sides who are interested, United, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, are prepared to wait until the end of the window to see if his price falls anymore.
Amrabat’s words on the situation
During the aftermath of a friendly match for Fiorentina, Amrabat was accosted by some fans of the Italian side.

The ball, as always, is in United’s court to make a move for the midfielder.
Ryan Gravenberch, from Bayern Munich, seems the more likely midfield addition with a loan deal being explored according to the same report.
