The possibility of acquiring midfielder Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina on a permanent basis this summer has not been ruled out by Manchester United.

The international player from Morocco signed a €10 million loan with the Red Devils last summer, with the option to buy for €20 million plus further €5 million.

Amrabat had a challenging start to his Premier League career. He found it difficult to handle the intensity, and in the beginning of 2024, he lost favour.

The 27-year-old did, however, have an incredible season finale. Including the FA Cup victory over Manchester City, he started all four of the remaining matches.

Amrabat performed admirably in May in terms of both his passing and work output, which may persuade United to retain him indefinitely.

According to Manchester Evening News, the club has not ruled out the possibility, but they will probably postpone the decision until manager Erik ten Hag’s future is resolved.

Currently, Amrabat and Ten Hag are covered by the same Sports Entertainment Group agency.

Man Utd should keep Amrabat and offload Casemiro

Casemiro’s 2023–2024 season at United was challenging. Early in the campaign, he battled a number of injuries, and by the conclusion, he was inconsistent.

Amrabat’s selection over him in the FA Cup final was expected. The Brazilian was hurt during the warm-up, so he had to withdraw after starting on the bench.

The leadership ought to break up with Casemiro, who gave over the ball 12 times every game during the previous season, in our opinion. Twice a game, he was also dribbled past.

Although Amrabat is not a significant improvement over the former Real Madrid player, he would still be a wise addition should the team want to go after another star midfield player.

Walid Regragui, the manager of Morocco, called Amrabat a “world-class” player. He began to prove his worth in the closing weeks and should be allowed to stay in the starting lineup.

With Casemiro’s departure, United could easily recover the signing cost for Amrabat. Al-Nassr, one of the biggest teams in the Saudi Pro League, is now keeping an eye on the 32-year-old and could invest a fair amount.
