I would love to play at Old trafford – Man United drop major £21m transfer hint in surprise first Sir Jim Ratcliffe signing

Manchester United have dropped a major hint over Sofyan Amrabat as they ponder the Moroccan midfielder’s future.

It was generally anticipated that he will leave Old Trafford following the expiration of his £8 million season-long loan from Fiorentina on Sunday night.

Nevertheless, fans have observed a detail of United’s new home uniform reveal that might indicate Amrabat would remain in his current position.

As part of the discussions last summer, the Red Devils included an option to make the 27-year-old’s stay permanent for a cost in the vicinity of £21 million.

He was one of six players whose contracts ended at the beginning of July, although he is no longer bound by the same agreement.

Meanwhile, Tom Heaton and Jonny Evans’ deals are now up, but United have already announced that both are in talks over potential extensions.

The M16 giants wasted no time updating their website after unveiling the new home kit for the 2024/25 season on Monday morning.

Erik ten Hag’s players – including exiled winger Jadon Sancho – have already received updated images on the men’s squad page, donning the club’s latest strip.

Amrabat, interestingly, is also still among United’s stars and wearing the club’s new shirt, despite now being a Fiorentina player again.

The decision may indicate that United are seriously considering keeping Amrabat on a permanent basis after he displayed his best form at the end of the season.

Allowing his contract to run out could open the door to a transfer worth less than the £21m buy-out clause originally included in his contract.

Negotiations may have taken place with Fiorentina over a permanent deal worth £21m or even a lower fee after Amrabat’s mixed maiden campaign in English football.

The energetic midfielder made 30 appearances for United but was primarily used as a substitute while he struggled to adapt to the Premier League.
