Manchester United may be working slowly to place a bid for Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat, but the Italian media is not taking that story as done.

On Sunday, we get to see several local outlets claiming the Red Devils are still in pole position to sign the 26-year-old.

Starting with Fiorentina News, the outlet claims that Manchester United were expected to place an offer last week, but the Red Devils are ‘taking longer than expected’ to sell their players before making a bid for Amrabat.

Quoting La Nazione, they claim the Serie A side are already ‘taking precautious’ about his sale, as they target a couple of midfielders who could replace him.

Meanwhile, Corriere Fiorentino, relayed by Viola News, claims Manchester United are still the ‘main contenders’ for Amrabat, despite Juventus’ interest.

It’s said a €27m offer from the Red Devils would be enough for a deal with Fiorentina.

What seems to be the most interesting story about this situation is the one coming from TuttoMercatoWeb.

They talk about a few Fiorentina transfers, and when speaking of Amrabat, it’s said that ‘rumours suggest’ the improved proposal could arrive after August 15th.

It’s once again claimed the player is ‘courted’ by Manchester United, even though they’re still to make strong efforts for the signing.
