Sofyan Amrabat dreams of Manchester United return

Sofyan Amrabat continues to harbour hopes of a return to Manchester United, where he spent the previous campaign on loan from Fiorentina. 

According to Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness, Sofyan Amrabat dreams of returning to Manchester United after leaving the club following his loan spell. The Red Devils had leaned towards not taking up the buy option in his contract, though Erik ten Hag’s stay at the club could prove key to determining the 27-year-old midfielder’s future. 

Sofyan Amrabat wants Manchester United return

After some impressive displays for Morocco at the FIFA World Cup, Sofyan Amrabat attracted massive interest from top clubs in the January window of 2023. He never moved anywhere, but he got his dream move to Manchester United late in the summer window, as the Red Devils brokered a loan move with Fiorentina. 

The initial agreement required Manchester United to pay a hefty loan fee, with the buy option pencilled in for around €20 million. The Red Devils weren’t impressed with his performances, although Erik ten Hag failed to use him in his natural position at the base of the midfield. Instead, the 27-year-old midfielder saw more game time in different areas, including many games at left back as the club manoeuvred through an injury crisis. 

As things stand, Manchester United have yet to exercise their buy option for the midfielder, meaning Amrabat has returned to Fiorentina, where he does not have a future. Hence, a departure seems imminent, with the midfielder dreaming of a return to Old Trafford, where Ten Hag could be key in determining the 27-year-old’s future.

Ten Hag used him well in the latter stages of last season, where Amrabat excelled in the defensive midfield role. Will those few games determine whether Amrabat is good enough to continue at the club, although this time around, Manchester United will have to pay a decent fee, as the report suggests Fiorentina could agree on a €15 million deal? 

Further interest in Amrabat

The report claims Amrabat has sufficient interest from clubs elsewhere, especially Turkey, although the 27-year-old midfielder could wait for Manchester United to make their decision. Other clubs in the Premier League are keen on signing him, and that could also prove to be a great option for the Moroccan. 

He also garnered the attention of clubs like Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, with either team with the possibility of returning with an interest should the deal suit them. Overall, the chances of Amrabat returning to Manchester United depend on Ten Hag and how the club are able to strengthen their midfield in the current market. However, the 27-year-old midfielder could be a great depth option.
