Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat will soon fly to Manchester from Florence, ahead of a much anticipated move to Manchester United.
FirenzeViola have provided some updates on a situation which has developed quickly in recent hours. They state that United are now close to agreeing an initial loan deal with an option to buy from Fiorentina. The midfielder did indeed arrive at Viola Park earlier today but he is there to bid some goodbyes at the club before he jets off to Manchester to complete a move to Old Trafford.
He will now spend too much time in Florence, with contacts between the two clubs taking place constantly in recent hours even though a bid was rejected last night.
Fiorentina have already blocked their move for Maxime Lopez, who will be a replacement for the Moroccan. Once Amrabat departs, a move for Lopez will go through and the situation is now constantly evolving.
