Louis Saha, the former Manchester United striker, believes that the club should sign Sofyan Amrabat to bring a unique quality to the squad. According to talkSPORT, Amrabat is hopeful of joining the Red Devils from Fiorentina this summer. However, the transfer could depend on whether United can sell Fred, with Fulham and Galatasaray reportedly interested in the Brazilian midfielder.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, is keen on bringing the Morocco World Cup star to Old Trafford, which would make him the fourth summer signing for the club. Mason Mount and Andre Onana have already been signed, and Rasmus Hojlund’s confirmation is expected shortly.
Saha believes that United will need Amrabat’s energy in midfield for the upcoming season. He stated, “Manchester United could benefit from the addition of another midfielder because you hear rumors that Fred or Scott McTominay could leave the club this summer. You definitely need to have two defensive midfielders in your squad, so if Fred or Scott do leave this summer, then you’re going to have to bring another player in.”
Saha also praised Amrabat, saying, “Amrabat is a player that I really like and he’s got a great intensity level that I don’t believe is matched. It would be exciting to see him at Manchester United, and he would improve the overall balance of the squad. We need legs, we need energy, and we need strength that can help us upset teams.”
Amrabat has one year left on his contract with Fiorentina. Manchester United still has pre-season friendlies with Lyon and Atletico Madrid before their season opener against Wolves on August 14.

Manchester United have been told that they must sign Dutch midfield maestro Sofyan Amrabat to provide an “unmatched” quality at Old Trafford.
The former Feyenoord star has emerged as a key transfer target for the Red Devils as they look to strengthen their midfield for the next season. The news of United’s interest in Amrabat has been welcomed by many observers, who feel he could be the perfect signing for the 20-time league champions.
Amrabat has established himself as one of the most talented and astute midfielders in the Dutch Eredivisie, having played a key role for Feyenoord since joining from Utrecht two years ago.
The Netherlands Under-21 international has been praised for his impressive performances, having provided a notable defensive contribution, while showing his ability to contribute offensively with several well-crafted assists and goals coming last season.
Amrabat’s ability to win the ball back with his defensive contributions combined with an offensive output that is often unmatched in the Eredivisie.
Therefore it is not surprising that the former FC Utrecht has garnered the attention of the Red Devils, his technical ability and defensive resolve would be a great addition to a midfield that contains the likes of Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek.
The Dutch ace is highly rated in his homeland, but his qualities across the pitch could be even better in the Premier League. That is why Manchester United must make it their mission to sign the 21-year-old in the upcoming summer transfer window.
