Sofyan Amrabat is waiting patiently for a dream move to Manchester United. One more week may do it.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said earlier in the summer that players were excited to join his project at Old Trafford.
Mason Mount’s decision to reject Arsenal and Liverpool to sign with Manchester United quickly proved his point, while Andre Onana snubbed Chelsea, and Rasmus Hojlund turned down PSG.
Another player who is seemingly waiting on Manchester United, is Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
Sofyan Amrabat move expected
Sofyan Amrabat is lined up for a move to Manchester United, once the club complete some player sales. Talks are ongoing over exits for Fred and Donny van de Beek.
Fabrizio Romano reports Amrabat has already ‘said yes’ to Manchester United and has rejected advances from the Saudi Pro League. The Evening Standard reported he made clear to West Ham he wasn’t interested either.
Now, according to TMW, Fiorentina are expecting talks with Manchester United to pick up next week.

The report states Fiorentina are expecting contact from United from August 15, after the Red Devils’ opening game of the season against Wolves.
This gives a few days for United to conclude one or two of the many planned player sales.
Amrabat has worked with Erik ten Hag before
Sofyan Amrabat played under Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag when he was a teenager at FC Utrecht, playing 50 games under his guidance.
Now 26, and a World Cup semi-finalist with Morocco, Amrabat is a more well rounded player, who seems to have his sights set on playing Champions League football with Manchester United.
He is staying patient for United to submit a bid. It seems like next week there could be some movement.
