This summer, Fiorentina would consider any bids made for their star player Sofyan Amrabat, according to his agent Mohamed Sinouh
After helping Morocco advance to the World Cup semifinals last year, the 26-year-old has gained much more notoriety. He also wanted to leave La Viola in the winter as he grew in stature and turned down a contract extension offer.
Numerous clubs made bids to Amrabat, but he had his heart set on Barcelona, who approached him about a loan on the final day of the January transfer window.
To his disappointment, Fiorentina rejected Blaugrana’s bid and insisted that the midfielder was not for sale, much to his dismay. However, given that his contract ends in the summer of 2024, La Viola might need to change their mind this summer. In order to avoid losing him for free at the end of his contract, they will be eager to sell him this summer.
Sinouh further disclosed that Amrabat was contacted by Manchester United earlier this year, but La Viola’s president blocked the Moroccan international from signing with Barcelona. Amrabat still aspires to play for Barca, according to the source, but the club is not in a strong financial position to sign him. While the Catalan giants are still unsure of their budget for the summer transfer window due to being constrained by La Liga’s FFP rules, Fiorentina may demand roughly €40 million.
Atletico Madrid, another Barcelona adversary, is keeping an eye on Amrabat’s position because Diego Simeone is rumoured to like the way he plays. La Viola has had a fantastic recent run, going unbeaten in their previous eight games across all competitions, thanks in large part to Amrabat.
