How much is Sofyan Amrabat worth? Here’s the possible Man Utd transfer fee

During the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, we saw plenty of outstanding players perform. We had Lionel Messi grab his very first World Cup trophy. We saw Kylian Mbappe win the Golden Boot. But without any hesitation, we can say that Morocco provided the world of football with some of the biggest surprises last year.

Goalkeeper-in-chief Yassine Bounou’s catlike reflexes were of crucial importance for Morocco’s historic World Cup performance. PSG’s superstar Achraf Hakimi did tremendously well in both attack and defense. But it was Sofyan Amrabat’s unyielding character that made football fans fall in love with Morocco.

At the center of the park, the 26-year-old midfielder has no match. He was running non-stop, winning first balls, making crucial tackles, supplying teammates with valuable passes and assists.

It’s no wonder why immediately after the World Cup, plenty of top European clubs began the battle for his signature. While he was close to singing with Catalan giants Barcelona, the wind seems to push him north.

With the deal ‘practically finished’, according to many sources, we expect to see Sofyan Amrabat with the Red Devils jersey sooner rather than later. Fiorentina will likely accept bids in the region of £25m for the Moroccan midfielder, but that’s certainly not a problem for Manchester United’s financial might.

The Red Devils are very aware of Fiorentina’s financial situation and that’s the reason Amrabat’s transfer took so long. The Reds were focused on signing key players in different positions, with top goalkeeper Onana being the latest player to join Manchester United’s ranks.

Sofyan Amrabat showed patience, as his long-anticipated transfer is getting closer and closer. He proved his desire to perform for Manchester United by rejecting a very lucrative deal from the Red Devils’ key rivals. Liverpool tried poaching the Moroccan underneath ten Haag, but the 26-year-old defensive midfielder seems to be a man of his word.

Is Sofyan Amrabat worth it?

As we stated earlier, Sofyan had a tremendous World Cup performance, which undoubtedly caused so much interest in his name. But it’s not like he didn’t perform his heart out for Fio as well.

During the 2022/23 Serie A season, Sofyan Amrabat was one of the key players in the league. He made 29 appearances for Fiorentina, in which he couldn’t score but did supply a teammate with an assist. To see him get booked on 11 occasions is definitely something good, as it seems he has the required physical attributes to compete in a demanding Premier League.

To have to pay only £25m to possess one of the best defensive midfielders in the world on your team is definitely a bargain and a half. We expect to see Sofyan Amrabat make an unbelievably solid midfield with Brazilian legend Casemiro.

Sofyan Amrabat is surely worth the trouble and we are sure that an experienced manager such as Erik ten Hag would know how to utilize the Moroccan’s skills in the best possible way.
