Manchester United continue to edge closer towards complete agreement over a move for Sofyan Amrabat with a new bid submitted.

Sofyan Amrabat has turned into the biggest saga of Manchester United’s summer window.

Hunting him for weeks without making a move, while the Moroccan rejected other clubs left-right and centre.

He is truly a red, with United being the only side he wants, it about time the club showed they are serious about a move.

As loan-talks continue, the Old Trafford outfit have submitted a fresh bid to take the midfielder on a permanent deal.

New Amrabat offer submitted

The news of a fresh and improved bid comes from Calcio Mercato who report that United have now submitted an official offer.

The proposal put forward by United is believed to be somewhere in the region on €30million (£25.6m).

This fee would then increase with bonuses, but already reaches a number which should be satisfactory to Fiorentina.

It is unclear whether this bid would be involved as an obligation to buy following a loan, or whether United have turned to a purchase instead.

If news of this bid is correct, it won’t be long until Amrabat is jumping on that private jet.

United chief flies to Italy

Manchester United’s director of football negotiations Matt Hargreaves has now flow to Italy in order to complete the move for Sofyan Amrabat.

This comes according to The Athletic who report that the negotiator has made his way with the view to completing the deal finally.

United are keen on a loan, however Fiorentina want a sale, will Dean Henderson’s departure have freed up enough cash to sign him permanently.

The report previously mentioned by Calico Mercato certainly suggests so, but as we know things can change so quickly in this transfer window.

Inevitable that he signs?

Despite it being embarrassing that it was left this late, signing Amrabat is a huge coup for Erik ten Hag’s side.

The Atlas lions’ star will be perfect for everything that Ten Hag wants to do at Old Trafford.

Breaking up play and also controlling the tempo in possession, Amrabat can do it all and will be rock solid next to Casemiro or as a replacement.

It seems that his arrival is imminent as United are too proud to miss out here given all the talk and also amid potential fan backlash.
