Report: Player absolutely wants to join Manchester United, has rejected Liverpool


Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla has reported on his website that Liverpool, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina in the summer transfer window.

Pedulla has claimed that Forest had agreed a deal with Fiorentina and had offered Amrabat “a major contract”.

Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, Galatasaray and clubs in Saudi Arabia all have tried to sign Amrabat.

The Morocco international defensive midfielder has rejected them all.

According to Pedulla, Amrabat “has had a total agreement on the engagement for weeks” with United and “sincerely” hopes to be playing for the Red Devils after the summer transfer window closes on Friday night.

The 27-year-old defensive midfielder wants to move to only United, according to the reporter.

United are reportedly struggling to agree to terms set out by Fiorentina.

90min has claimed that Fiorentina are willing to send the Moroccan star on a loan deal to United, as long as there is a mandatory purchase option for the player next summer.

While we can understand why Amrabat would turn down moves to Nottingham Forest and to clubs in Saudi Arabia, he could regret not signing for Liverpool if United fail to get a done before the window closes on Friday evening.

Liverpool are a massive club and are a global brand, and they have won the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League in recent years.

And Amrabat could have got into the Liverpool first team with ease now, especially as manager Jurgen Klopp needs a defensive midfielder like him.
