Man Utd new signing Sofyan Amrabat “had Fiorentina insert a special clause into his contract” before completing the loan deal

MANCHESTER UNITED new signing Sofyan Amrabat will have his Fiorentina contract automatically extended by a year if United do not exercise their option to buy next summer.

This is according to The mirrorwho say that Fiorentina insisted on the “secret transfer clause”.

Amrabat’s transfer to United was one of the saga of the summer. The deal came in the form of a loan deal with an option to buy for United after months of haggling.

United delayed the deal because Ten Hag insisted on addressing other areas of the squad before signing 27-year-old Amrabat.

In the end, Manchester United agreed on a loan fee of £8.5 million and a purchase option of £21.5 million.

Fiorentina were extremely reluctant to sign Amrabat on loan, but his desire for a move ultimately forced them to do so.

However, the Florence club have taken measures to protect their assets in case United do not exercise their option to buy.

Amrabat’s contract expires in 2025. An automatic one-year extension if United don’t sign him will allow them to command a higher transfer fee if he moves elsewhere.

Amrabat captained Fiorentina last season when La Viola reached the Europa Conference League final.

But his insistence on a transfer to United led to him refusing to train for the Florence club and he played little role in pre-season.


However, Amrabat may have to wait for his first appearance in a Manchester United shirt.

The midfielder “felt something” while training with the Moroccan national team ahead of games against Liberia and Burkina Faso.

He has since been sent back to Carrington to undergo an evaluation of the injury.
