That&aposs according to reports from TMW as the Old Trafford giants work towards completing their loan move for the Fiorentina midfielder. Amrabat, 27, has long-since been linked with a switch to United, but Erik ten Hag only firmed-up his late interest in the talented 49-cap Morocco international this week.
Getting a proposed deal over the line for Amrabat will be among the main priorities for United before the window closes at 11pm on Friday night. They are, also, hoping to bring in Sergio Reguilon.

United want to strengthen up their options at left-back and central midfield following injuries to Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Mason Mount, among others. However, after splashing out 180million already, they have been forced to scour the loan market due to constraints within the budget.
According to the TMW report, Amrabat will jet into Manchester on Friday morning to push through a transfer and, as such, other formalities such as his medical will take place. However, there is, also, some suggestion United could face competition for the player from Premier League side Fulham.
Elsewhere, reports from The Sun indicate United could revive their quest to snap up OGC Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo before the deadline passes. Todibo, 23, has earned rave reviews for his performances for Nice, and has been mooted as a replacement for Harry Maguire previously.
