Sofyan Amrabat, the Moroccan midfielder, wants to stay at Manchester United after doing well in his year on loan there, says reporter Andy Mitten.

The 27-year-old was on loan from Fiorentina for £8.5 million, with an option to make it a full deal for £20 million in the upcoming season. What happens next for him at the club depends on the choices of the owners and the team’s overall plan for who comes and goes.

Last summer, Amrabat was a sought-after player with several clubs showing interest, but he was determined to reunite with manager Erik ten Hag at United. Initially, Amrabat struggled to adapt to the Premier League’s intensity.

He started the season playing out of position at left-back due to an injury crisis and later moved into midfield. However, some subpar performances saw him benched in favor of Kobbie Mainoo and Casemiro, who formed the regular midfield pairing earlier this year.

Despite these challenges, Amrabat’s fortunes changed towards the end of the season. An injury crisis at the club forced Casemiro to play as a centre-back, creating an opportunity for Amrabat to return to the midfield.

He seized this chance, delivering standout performances against Arsenal and Newcastle United.

His efforts were rewarded with a starting position in the FA Cup final against Manchester City, where he impressed by being selected over Casemiro, who was sidelined due to an injury during the warm-up.

Amrabat wants to keep playing at Old Trafford. His good performances and love from fans make him want to stay. The club’s owners must now choose if they will buy him for future.

Since there is a big club in Saudi Arabia that wants Casemiro, United could use the money from selling him to get Amrabat as some think Casemiro’s best days are over.

The final decision may ultimately rest with Erik ten Hag. If the manager continues at the helm, there is a strong possibility that Amrabat will be signed on a permanent basis.

Described as a ‘world-class‘ player by Morocco manager Walid Regragui, Amrabat could serve as an excellent backup if United decide to bring in a marquee holding midfielder.

In the end, Sofyan Amrabat’s time at Manchester United ties closely with the club’s plan for new players and what the owners decide. His good performances in the last part of his loan has strongly argued for him to stay for good.

As the summer transfer season gets near, all are watching to see how United will fix up their middle part for the next season.
