- Amrabat wants United
- Red Devils to send official bid
- Must first offload either Fred or Van de Beek
WHAT HAPPENED? According to Fabrizio Romano, the Morocco international is keen to complete his proposed transfer to Old Trafford. He is believed to have turned down offers from clubs in Saudi Arabia, including one from Al-Ahli, as he has set his heart on a new challenge with the Premier League giants.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: United are yet to submit an official bid for Amrabat to Fiorentina. However, they will send it soon after either Fred or Donny van de Beek leaves the club. While Fred has been targeted by Fulham and Jose Mourinho's AS Roma, Spanish outfit Real Sociedad are said to be eyeing a loan deal for Dutch midfielder Van de Beek.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Fiorentina might demand around £30 million ($39m) for Amrabat. This was the figure mooted earlier in July when the 26-year-old initially told the Italian club of his desire to leave.
