Manchester United are expected to make a push for Morocco international star Sofyan Amrabat.

Sofyan Amrabat, 26, has only one year remaining on his contract at Fiorentina and the Serie A side are expected to cash in this summer.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports the midfielder has already decided to join Manchester United, and is awaiting a bid.

He adds United may need to sell a midfielder to raise funds, after already signing Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund.

Sofyan Amrabat proved his quality

Sofyan Amrabat has been on the radar of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag since his time at FC Utrecht, when he was just a teenager, and played 50 games under the now Red Devils boss.

But it was at the end of 2022 when Amrabat really caught the footballing public’s attention, helping nation Morocco reach the World Cup semi-finals in Qatar.

Amrabat’s performances at the tournament were notable, with manager Walid Regragui stating that the midfielder deserved a move to a top 10 team in the world.

He also attracted the praise of UK based pundits, with Manchester United legend Roy Keane among them.

Keane told ITV: “He was outstanding”, when helping to select the broadcaster’s team of the tournament in Qatar, HITC Football reported.

Another pundit to pick him out for praise was Chris Sutton, who raved, via BBC Radio 5 Live Sport: “Amrabat has arguably been the Player of the Tournament, for me.

“I know everybody bangs on about Messi. I get that. But he has been incredible.”

Manchester United need Amrabat quality

Sofyan Amrabat will add tough tackling and energy to Manchester United’s midfield. Importantly, he will relieve some of the pressure on Casemiro.

Casemiro is a warrior and Amrabat has the same spirit. No team will find it easy coming up against the pair when they are selected in the same line-up.

This is what United need, especially in matches away from home, where the side was rolled over too easily last season.
