- Amrabat joins Man Utd on loan
- Red Devils can make deal permanent next summer
- Liverpool were also interested
WHAT HAPPENED? Amrabat has been linked with a move away from the Serie A side since starring during Morocco's run to the 2022 World Cup semi-finals. United have won the race for his signature, confirming his arrival on deadline day.
WHAT THEY SAID: “It is a huge honour to become a Manchester United player. I’ve had to be patient for this moment but I’m someone who always listens to my heart and now I am representing the club of my dreams," Amrabat said.
"I am a passionate player. I want to bring that energy to the squad, and I will put everything into every action I take for the team. I know exactly how Erik ten Hag likes to work and what he needs from his players. His coaching and guidance developed me so much as a player earlier in my career I know that he will help to bring out the best of my abilities so that I can help the group to be successful this season.”
THE BIGGER PICTURE: It's understood that the Red Devils are paying a €10 million (£8.6m/$10.9m) loan fee for Amrabat's services this season. They will then have the option to make his move permanent next summer for €25m (£21m/$27m).
AND WHAT'S MORE: Liverpool were among the other sides interested in signing Amrabat this summer. However, they have missed out, opting to bring in Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern Munich instead.
