Manchester United’s interest in Sofyan Amrabat is the main reason the midfielder has become such a star of the window, but what must be recalled is that Fiorentina had also been expecting his farewell.

Following his failed departure in January, there was a silent agreement between club and player that he’d be sold this summer, and that made him an obvious name for a few clubs who wanted a defensive midfielder.

Now with a few days until the end of the window, nothing happened so far. And newspaper Corriere Dello Sport today explains that Manchester United could actually have an easier opportunity to sign the Morocco international.

It’s recalled that Fiorentina had indeed been demanding €30m to let Amrabat go. With no one paying that much, they find themselves in a situation where they’re ‘giving up’ on that stance and are set to accept a loan with an option to buy.

The reason is that there’s no mood for the midfielder to stay at the club. He’d been promised his exit and, right now, he isn’t even joining the squad for their matches.

Fiorentina are set to ‘evaluate’ everything that shows up on their table in the coming days, including the loan deals. So if Manchester United had any doubts about the investment in the player, that seems like a great chance.
