Manchester United sign Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina as loan fee revealed

United will pay a 10million loan fee to Fiorentina for the 27-year-old and have the option to make the deal permanent for 20million, plus a further 5million in add-ons.

Erik ten Hag has been pushing for the signing of Amrabat all summer, having managed the midfielder at FC Utrecht between 2015 and 2017. Amrabat impressed during Morroco&aposs run to the World Cup semi-finals and was out of contract at Fiorentina next summer.

United have been managing Financial Fair Play issues this summer and could only move for Amrabat on a temporary basis once they had sold Dean Henderson to Crystal Palace for 15million, plus a further 5million in add-ons.

Amrabat had his heart set on a reunion with Ten Hag all summer and revealed he had to remain patient while waiting for the move during the window.

It is a huge honour to become a Manchester United player. Ive had to be patient for this moment but Im someone who always listens to my heart and now I am representing the club of my dreams,” he said.

“I am a passionate player; I want to bring that energy to the squad, and I will put everything into every action I take for the team. I know exactly how Erik ten Hag likes to work and what he needs from his players.

“His coaching and guidance developed me so much as a player earlier in my career; I know that he will help to bring out the best of my abilities so that I can help the group to be successful this season.”

United&aposs football director John Murtough revealed Amrabat&aposs high-energy approach is a natural fit for Ten Hag&aposs squad.
