After the Italians established a deadline for his departure, Manchester United have until Friday to finalize a deal for Fiorentina striker Sofyan Amrabat.
Although the Moroccan star and United have reached personal terms on a transfer to Old Trafford, the club has not yet made a proposal for the midfielder.
This is as a result of United’s inability to sell players like Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay. The club is treading a fine line when it comes to Financial Fair Play, therefore they can’t approve any more arrivals until they do.
Fiorentina are willing to sell Amrabat for £30 million with less than a week left in the transfer window.
However, the club won’t allow him leave before finding a replacement, and according to Corriere dello Sport, they won’t consider any proposals made after Friday.
That gives United 72 hours to close the deal, and Erik ten Hag is running out of time to apprehend his target. Another target for the Red Devils is Ryan Gravenberch, although Liverpool will be a challenge.
Folarin Balogun is apparently valued very differently by Chelsea and Arsenal, despite the fact that Chelsea wants to sign the player.
Balogun wants to leave the north London club this summer and is rumored to be interested in joining Chelsea.
The 22-year-old American striker, who had a productive loan season with Reims last year, is keen to play for the first squad this year. Balogun scored 21 goals in 37 games while playing for France, which caught the attention of several clubs this summer.
