Until his future is sorted one way or another, it appears that Sofyan Amrabat, a target for Manchester United, will be pushed to one side.

That isn’t anything malicious from Fiorentina, but it’s just the reality of the situation, as Calciomercato bring the latest surrounding the Morocco international.

They explain that the player is currently ‘not training’ with the rest of the group, as he waits for Manchester United, or any other team, to make that decisive bid to sign him.

It’s recalled he was first on the bench against Genoa, and is now ‘absent on the pitch’ in the last training session before Fiorentina head off to face Rapid Vienna in the Conference League playoffs.

In fact, the Manchester United target ‘seems to be following in the footsteps of a player on the verge of being sold’, but his situation in fact remains unchanged ‘since the beginning of the summer’.

No adequate bid has reached Fiorentina’s offices, meaning €30m including bonuses, and the fact the player is ‘not a priority’ for the Red Devils, Liverpool or Atlético Madrid makes life complicated.

Teams are ‘waiting until the last minute to see if the price drops’, and while a tug of war is ‘on the horizon’, the midfielder was doing ‘personalised work’ in training.

He is ‘ready to stay’ at Fiorentina if nothing takes shape, but that’s certainly not his desire.

Either way, he wants to know what his future will be made of, and the Serie A side continue to monitor possible avenues to replace him should that bid finally be made.
