Breaking News: Man United accelerate plan to sign the best defender Sofyan Amrabat replacement.



Man United is moving on with its aim to sign a successor for Sofyan Amrabat.During the month of January, Manchester United is planning to investigate the possibility of making a transfer for a defensive midfielder, which will further cast doubt on the future of Sofyan Amrabat, who is now on loan from Manchester United.

According to a report that was published by Football Insider on Friday (1 December), the Red Devils have not yet made a definitive decision on the permanent signing of the midfielder, who is currently on loan from the Serie A club Fiorentina.Since his arrival at Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, it is thought that Manchester United do not believe the 27-year-old has performed to the best of his abilities at the club.They are looking to upgrade their team for the balance of the 2023-24 season, and this has encouraged them to pursue additional recruiting in order to accomplish this goal.


The recruitment team has been tasked with the responsibility of identifying individuals who are capable of fitting into the playing style of the club. Internal discussions have taken place over potential targets.


Unless Amrabat is able to improve his performances and establish himself as Erik ten Hag’s first-choice starting lineup, it is quite doubtful that United will make Amrabat’s move permanent.Four of the eight games that the Morocco international has started for Manchester United have resulted in a victory for the club.


Due to the fact that Casemiro suffered a hamstring injury during their League Cup match against Newcastle United a month ago, the team has very few choices available to them in the defensive midfield position on the pitch.


Nevertheless, Kobbie Mainoo, who is 18 years old and has just recently returned from an injury, may now potentially limit Amrabat’s role even further.According to reports, the Old Trafford club has already paid a loan price of £8.5 million to acquire the midfielder for the 2023-24 season. Additionally, the club has the option to purchase him permanently for an extra fee of £21.4 million.There is a contract in place with Fiorentina that extends until June 2025 for Amrabat, who made a strong showing for Morocco at the World Cup in Qatar.


As a result of their 3-3 tie against Galatasaray earlier this week (29 November), which Amrabat started, Ten Hag’s team is currently in the lowest spot in Group A, and they are on the verge of being eliminated from the Champions League.


In other developments, Manchester United want to reach a contract agreement with the top player, and then they intend to release him.
