- Club need finance from player sales to enable transfer
- Priority for Erik ten Hag in market is to secure a striker
Manchester United may move for Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat or another defensive midfielder towards the end of the transfer window should the club raise enough finance from player sales.
Amrabat, who impressed in Morocco’s run to the Qatar 2022 World Cup semi-finals, would cost about £30m. The 26-year-old represents an upgrade on Scott McTominay, last season’s deputy to Casemiro in the holding role.
