Manchester United have entered the race for Moroccan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat following his brilliant run at the World Cup.

As per Sportske Novosti, Manchester United might disrupt Liverpool’s approach for Sofyan Amrabat as the Fiorentina midfielder has caught the attention of the Premier League giants.

Following the conclusion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, several players have found themselves amid headlines. And many clubs have been busy scouting players for their future endeavours.

Manchester United have also done their homework, and the recruitment team is now focused to provide the best possible players to Erik ten Hag. Despite bringing in Casemiro and Christian Eriksen, the Manchester United manager is not convinced by his midfield options and feels the need for further assessment.

Given the exorbitant amount of pressure in place, ten Hag needs time to churn out results consistently, and early signs have been pretty encouraging. The rebuilding has shaped quite nicely so far, but Manchester United will need additional forces in the middle of the pitch.

Manchester United recently have triggered the one-year extension clause in Fred’s contract. But the midfielder is merely a squad player nowadays and his efficiency has not been to the required level. Moreover, recent reports have suggested that Fred might depart from Old Trafford soon.

The best possible way would be to ease out all the fringe players to make the transition smooth. And Amrabat could be a shrewd move by Manchester United. The Fiorentina ace outclassed other midfielders at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. And perhaps this could be the right time for Manchester United to invest heavily in a player who could be included in their long-term planning.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp already had an extensive meeting with the entourage of the 26-year-old. And the Reds could initiate contacts in the coming days. They are set to lose more than one midfielder at the end of this season, and proper replacement work needs to be carried out.

Should Manchester United wish to take the next step in their squad rebuild, they should be indulged in the race to land Amrabat. A move in January might be too soon, but they could wait till the summer as it would always be unfair to write the Red Devils off when it comes to transfers. For now, the 26-year-old might remain at Serie A club Fiorentina.
