Manchester United are still attempting to sign Sofyan Amrabat and do not need complications from other interested clubs.
Cash-strapped Manchester United are relying on name brand rather than finances, in an attempt to complete the signing of Sofyan Amrabat.
The money at Old Trafford has run out, and United want to loan the World Cup semi-finalist with the promise of ‘we will pay you next year’. Fiorentina want that written into an agreement as an obligation, 90Min report.
So what we don’t want, is rival interest from clubs promising to pay the cash Fiorentina want up front…
Fulham want Amrabat
Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio last night revealed Fulham are working on a deal to sign Sofyan Amrabat. They are looking for a replacement for Joao Palhinha, bound for Bayern Munich, and have even been linked to Scott McTominay.
Fortunately, these reports do not look like ones for Manchester United to worry about too much, at this stage.

Fabrizio Romano took just half an hour to dismiss Fulham’s interest, promising Manchester United have fresh talks planned with Fiorentina.
He wrote: “Manchester United are set to negotiate again with Fiorentina for Amrabat deal. Fulham are not involved in the race at this stage.
“#MUFC Amrabat wants to join Manchester Utd since the end of June and he won’t open to any other club until United are in the mix.”
Amrabat desire the key
Sofyan Amrabat’s desire to join Manchester United, and only Manchester United, is the key to this deal going ahead, and even still being alive at this point.
Alfredo Pedulla says Amrabat has ‘total agreement’ with Manchester United, and that he has already rejected multiple offers.
In addition to enquiries from Serie A rivals, Amrabat has turned down Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, Nottingham Forest, and the Saudi Pro League.
Romano’s update appears to be good news, but Manchester United must meet Fiorentina halfway, and offer a fail deal.
