Manchester United’s opening proposal to finally sign Sofyan Amrabat on loan has been rejected by Fiorentina.
After a summer of speculation, the Red Devils finally made their move for the Morocco midfielder on Wednesday afternoon.
United have been trying to raise funds through player sales, in order to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.
That has proven very difficult, with Harry Maguire turning down a move to West Ham and the club failing to receive what they deem to be suitable offers for McTominay and Anthony Martial.
United have now attempted to sign Amrabat on loan, rather than meet Fiorentina’s £30million asking price for the midfielder.
But Gianluca Di Marzio claims that the Serie A team have turned down United’s offer and are ‘holding firm’ over getting a fee for Amrabat.
It’s said Man United’s offer arrived in the ‘last hours’ and that Galatasaray have also made a move for the Morroccan.
Should Fiorentina remain resolute in their stance, Erik ten Hag’s side will have to offload players to raise the cash needed to sign Amrabat.
The midfielder is desperate to join the Premier League club and has received assurances from Ten Hag that a deal will go through.
