Manchester United are being strongly linked to Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
Rumours of a Manchester United move for Sofyan Amrabat have kicked up a notch. However, a deal is not done yet.
Viola News report there has been new contact today between Manchester United and Amrabat’s agents.
The report states United need to sell one of Scott McTominay or Fred to finance a deal for the World Cup star.
Amrabat deal claim made
Moroccan journalist Izel Amass has claimed a deal has been agreed, tweeting, ‘Breaking News: Sofyan Amrabat to join Manchester United’.
However, he clarified this, adding: “There is still a detail to settle and the deal will be 100% good for Amrabat.”
In our opinion, this sounds like Amrabat may have settled on broad personal terms with Manchester United, with a fee yet to be agreed between the Red Devils and Fiorentina.
