OFFICIAL: Man United Confirms The Signing Of Sofyan Amrabat From Fiorentina On A Season-Long Loan.

Manchester United have completed the season-long loan signing of ACF Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat with an option to buy.

United will pay £8.5m (€10m) to take Amrabat on loan with an option to make the deal permanent for £21.4m (€25m).

The 27-year-old becomes United's fourth Deadline Day signing after the arrivals of goalkeeper Altay Bayindir from Fenerbahce, Tottenham left-back Sergio Reguilon and free agent Jonny Evans. 

He is also the seventh addition to Erik ten Hag squad this summer following the arrival of midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea, goalKeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan, and striker Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta.

Amrabat was not been part of Fiorentina's squad for Thursday's Europa Conference League play-off second leg against Rapid Vienna.

He had been linked with a move to Man Utd for the majority of the transfer window, but it would take the club until the final hours of the transfer window to finalise a deal.

The Morocco international starred for his country at last year's World Cup where they finished fourth and has spent three seasons at Fiorentina, making 92 appearances.

Following his move, Amrabat told United's official website: "It is a huge honour to become a Man United player. I've had to be patient for this moment but I'm someone who always listens to my heart and now I am representing the club of my dreams.

"I am a passionate player; I want to bring that energy to the squad, and I will put everything into every action I take for the team."

Amrabat worked with United boss Erik ten Hag at Utrecht in the Netherlands.

"I know exactly how Erik ten Hag likes to work and what he needs from his players," he added.

"His coaching and guidance developed me so much as a player earlier in my career; I know that he will help to bring out the best of my abilities so that I can help the group to be successful this season."
