Fiorentina are reportedly prepared to sell Sofyan Amrabat to Manchester United for €30m including add-ons, but have still not received a formal offer.
The Old Trafford side’s interest in Amrabat has been no secret for months, but he was put on the backburner while they focused on priorities like Andre Onana from Inter and Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund.
Now they need to sell midfielders such as Fred and Donny van de Beek in order to raise funds for Amrabat’s purchase.
According to La Repubblica newspaper, Fiorentina have informed Manchester United that they are ready to part with the Morocco international for €25m plus another €5m in easy to activate performance-related bonuses.
However, the formal bid has still not been received and nothing can move until that step has been taken.
It is not entirely unusual, as Manchester United’s approach to the Italian clubs throughout the summer has involved keeping them waiting before making their official proposals.
Amrabat was left out of the Viola squad for today’s friendly match against Newcastle United.
Sportitalia already reported several weeks ago that Amrabat had agreed personal terms with Manchester United.
