According to reports from Football Insider, sources have claimed that United made a breakthrough in pursuing the Moroccan midfielder.
While the news outlet reported that Amrabat could cost around £30 million, it was unclear if United have signed him on loan or a permanent deal.
This comes after Fabrizio Romano said United were preparing a formal bid, with Fiorentina possibly open to a loan with obligation to buy.
However, earlier reports disagreed with Romano’s claim that talks were only informal, saying United had submitted a loan bid rejected by Fiorentina, who prefer a bigger fee due to interest from Napoli.
The People’s Person revealed Napoli are preparing a loan bid with obligation to buy, making financial sense for Fiorentina over a United loan alone.
With the transfer deadline approaching, United must act fast to complete Amrabat’s move.
Attempting to force his exit, Amrabat has reportedly stopped training or playing for Fiorentina.
If he passes his medical, Amrabat will be Erik ten Hag’s latest signing as United look to strengthen the midfield before the window closes.
