The interest in Sofyan Amrabat from Manchester United is not new. A couple of months ago, Ten Hag had first contact with Amrabat and his agents. Since then, he has dreamed of playing for Man Utd. That he wanted to live his dream this summer. With a year left on his contract, Amrabat knew that this was his opportunity. So, he waited and finally, he got his move.

Fiorentina rejected several bids from Manchester United

The signing of Sofyan Amrabat was not easy as Manchester United had to place multiple bids before they could get their man. Also, United couldn’t afford to get him on a permanent move due to the financial fair play rules. It had to be a loan move.

Fiorentina wanted a permanent move. They also had offers from several other heavyweight European clubs. But, Amrabat rejected all of them including Liverpool. So, today, Fiorentina had no other choice other than to accept the bid from United.

When will Amrabat make his Manchester United debut?

With all said and done, fans are now waiting to know when Sofyan Amrabat will make his Manchester United debut. The club is yet to announce the transfer. After that, documents need to be signed.
