February 16, 2023

In the summer, Manchester United may renew their interest in Sofyan Amrabat as Erik ten Hag searches for a standout midfielder.

Manchester United may compete with Chelsea, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid for Sofyan Amrabat in the summer, according to Fichajes. In January, the 26-year-old World Cup semifinalist was eager to move, but Fiorentina forbade it.

One of the top midfielders in the World Cup, Sofyan Amrabat was a key member of the Moroccan team that advanced to the quarterfinals. Numerous admirers were drawn to the Fiorentina midfielder’s reliable performances and tenacity in his role

Barcelona was the lone team to make a late push to sign him as other teams snooped around all of January. After admitting loss in his attempt to secure Martin Zubimendi, Xavi Hernandez sought out a new midfielder to strengthen the team.

Xavi, a 26-year-old World Cup semifinalist, was enthusiastic about the transfer since Amrabat’s high-energy style complemented his own. Barcelona only made loan offers with the possibility of a purchase at the conclusion of the current campaign. In addition to not wanting to lose him, Fiorentina believed the Catalans did not value him as highly as they did.

When the summer transfer market opens, Manchester United will still be interested in signing the midfielder. On the day before the deadline, Erik ten Hag was able to secure Marcel Sabitzer’s loan, but the Bayern Munich star might not be a viable long-term alternative.

They prioritized Declan Rice in their search for a new central midfielder. They may have recently changed their attention away from the West Ham star, who may end up somewhere else, like Arsenal.

Amrabat, on the other hand, aspires to play for Barcelona and requested the transfer in January. Although the 26-year-old World Cup semifinalist is a target for the Blaugrana, much will depend on their ability to pay the midfielder’s transfer fee.

Amrabat, who continues to be frantic to leave Fiorentina, may be acquired by Manchester United or Chelsea if they are unable to handle the necessary finances. The midfielder may make a significant summer transfer, although his final destination is still uncertain.
