Manchester United’s chase for Fiorentina’s central midfielder Sofyan Amrabat appears to have reached a new turning point as the Italian club have lowered the asking price to just £21million, according to CorSport.

According to information obtained from the Italian news source CarSport, the fee this evening has been lowered to £21million to secure the signing.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Amrabat has refrained from participating in training with the Italian squad, apparently as part of an effort to push through his departure. Amrabat has also not been included in the clubs squad as they travel for their next fixture.

Connections between Amrabat and United have been strong throughout the transfer window. United’s inability to sell players and thereby generate the necessary funds to acquire the former Utrecht player is the main stumbling block.

The Red Devils are desperate to bolster their midfield options, particularly in light of the recent injury to Mason Mount in the game against Tottenham Hotspur, which will keep him out for four to six weeks, a massive blow for United.

It has been reported that Amrabat is abstaining from training sessions with Fiorentina, seemingly intent on accelerating a move away from the club.

Further details from the report indicate that Amrabat’s behaviour is consistent with that of a player on the cusp of being transferred.

As per the Italian media’s claims, other clubs showing interest in the player, such as Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, alongside United, seem willing to bide their time until the closing stages of the transfer window to see if an opportunity arises for a more favourable deal.

Now is seemingly the time to move for United, go get him, Erik.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
