Sofyan Amrabat exit could see Man United finally sign €30m ‘extraordinary’ World class midfielder this summer

Sofyan Amrabat could help Manchester United finally sign Adrien Rabiot this summer with Juventus eyeing up the Fiorentina loanee as a potential replacement for the Premier League-linked Frenchman.

If his hopes of earning a permanent contract at Old Trafford looked slim already, then the sight of Sofyan Amrabat being caught on the ball in stoppage time as Erling Haaland fired a third of the afternoon past Andre Onana at the Etihad Stadium probably served to book the Moroccan’s flight back to Florence.

“He is world class,” former Juventus and France striker David Trezeguet tells Sky Italia. “An extraordinary player.”

28-year-old Rabiot, a rangy and powerful box-to-box midfielder with an eye for goal, could add some much-needed athleticism to a rather one-paced United engine room
