Fiorentina were left ‘disappointed’ by midfielder Sofyan Amrabat’s conduct across the summer as he worked hard to force a move to Manchester United.
That’s according to Corriere dello Sport, who say there was an air of disappointment around the Italian club at how the midfielder had behaved over the last few months.
Amrabat finally secured his move to Manchester United on deadline day, with a tense last day of the window seeing a deal agreed between the two clubs after months of negotiations.
He will joining Erik ten Hag’s squad on initial loan deal, which Manchester United have paid €10m for, with a €20m purchase option that the Premier League side will be able to exercise come May next year.
The move is a big relief for all involved, particularly Fiorentina, who had been dealing with a player who was very much outside of the squad for the last month and keen to leave.
Corriere state that he had collected his personal belongings from Viola Park after living ‘separated’ from the group over the last month.
His behaviour has not gone down well with the Italian club’s management, coaching staff or fellow players, who were all left ‘disappointed’ by how he has conducted himself.
That, of course, will mean little to Amrabat or Manchester United, who both got what they wanted in the end, despite a long, twisting and drawn-out saga to get there.
