Manchester United are believed to be well on their way to completing a move to sign top target Sofyan Amrabat.

In what has been a whirlwind 48 hours surrounding the saga of the summer for United, a breakthrough seems to have been made.

United‘s interest in a move has been ever present all summer long, with the Moroccan player himself said to be waiting on a deal to transpire.

Sofyan Amrabat is believed to cost too much for United which explains why their attention has turned to a loan deal.

However even with a loan move being touted, the finances United were offering due to FFP restrictions was still too much.

Amrabat getting closer

The deal is now believed to be halfway done with hope it can be concluded before the deadline at 11pm tomorrow.

90min’s Graeme Bailey and Scott Saunders have combined to bring a positive update to United fans.

Bailey tweeted: “Sources confirm that Fiorentina have agreed to make Sofyan Amrabat’s move to Manchester United a loan, but it has to have obligation to become permanent. Talks progressing now between clubs with personal terms already in place.”

An update that finally makes the deal seem like it is moving in the right direction after weeks of confusion, but can they get it done?

Can United get the deal done?

We like to hope so, with so much time dedicated to this deal, it would be embarrassing if it wasn’t pulled off.

Clearly Erik ten Hag has made Amrabat a priority and is incredibly keen on bringing him in.

However it seems the club aren’t convinced which explains the hold up thus far.

However if Amrabat does arrive, he will soon silence any doubters and establish himself in the starting line-up.
