Premier League linked Sofyan Amrabat is leaning towards rejecting Saudi Arabian offers with the Manchester United target now ‘in talks’ with a number of interested clubs. 

That, at least, is the view of Amrabat’s older brother.

Nordin Amrabat, the former Watford winger, has spoken openly about his younger siblings future during a couple of speculation-filled months; confirming that Manchester United failed with a bid for the Fiorentina enforcer during the January.

And while the Red Devils are now prioritising a goalkeeper and a centre-forward (most likely Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund), Sofyan Amrabat is one to keep an eye on during the final month-and-a-half of the summer.

Manchester United could make Sofyan Amrabat move

According to Sky’s Florian Plettenberg, Man United are monitoring Morocco’s World Cup star ‘very closely’, with Fiorentina reportedly willing to consider offers in the region of £30 million.

Nordin admitted that he ‘didn’t want to say too much’ about Sofyan’s future during a conversation with ESPN. But he did still serve up a few tasty morsels of insider knowledge.

“He is in talks with a few clubs. There are things going on,” Nordin explains.

“His plan and intention is to stay in Europe, but there is also interest from Saudi Arabia. They pay very well these days.”

Andre Onana recently turned down a move to the Middle East in order to seal a move to Old Trafford; Fabrizio Romano reporting that a deal could be agreed with Inter Milan before the weekend. 

Amrabat is known to Ten Hag

Amrabat, like Onana, has worked with Ten Hag before. The Dutchman coached the ‘world-class’ defensive midfielder during their time together at FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie, though a potential reunion may depend on United first finding a buyer for the likes of Fred and Donny Van de Beek.

“If important teams want him, I think he has the opportunity to change (clubs),” former Fiorentina captain Giancarlo Antognini tells Tuttomercatoweb.

“He has done very well this year. And, if he were to leave, Fiorentina will lose something good.”
