Man Utd working to seal Sofyan Amrabat deal before transfer deadline - but they can only sign Fiorentina midfielder on loan

  • Man Utd targeting Amrabat
  • Have been linked all summer
  • Hoping to finally complete deal

WHAT HAPPENED? The Athletic reports that United are hoping to seal a deal for the midfielder before Friday's deadline but the deal is complicated by the club's current Financial Fair Play situation. As a result, United are attempting to agree a loan deal with Fiorentina for Amrabat, who is set to be left out of the Italian club's Europa Conference League play-off squad once again for their second leg tie against Rapid Wien on Thursday.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The club have been linked with the Morocco international throughout the summer and the 27-year-old is keen to move to Old Trafford. United have also considered a deal for Bayern Munich's Ryan Gravenberch but Amrabat is currently top of Erik ten Hag's list of midfield targets.
