Sofyan Ambrabat’s loan spell at the Mancunian side has not exactly gone to plan, with reports coming in that his parent club Fiorentina are very concerned his market value may be going down. This is according to reports from daily mail.

In addition to his market value going down, Fiorentina are also concerned they may be unable to find another home for the midfielder if they need to offload him in the summer. This is in the very likely event that United decide not to make the move permanent.

Most of this backlash is on account of his error over the weekend that led to Erling Haaland scoring a third and putting the derby to bed. Amrabat failed to control the ball, got dispossessed by Rodri and Haaland did the damage as he always does.

The 27-year-old Moroccan completed a much awaited move to Old Trafford last summer on deadline day. Manchester United paid 9 million euros loan fees to Fiorentina while also covering the midfielder’s salary. The deal also included a 20 million euro buy clause and 5 million in add-ons.

Erik ten Hag was looking to bolster is midfield option and running on a bleak budget, the inly choice was to dip into the loan market and Amrabat was the best option.

Amrabat arrived with a lot of hype, especially after his world cup 2022 displays. He unfortunately arrived carrying injury niggles that delayed his debut. When he finally got better and available for selection, he was deployed at left back to cover for our injured full backs, which did not help his case at all.

Whenever a midfield slot was available, ten Hag preferred playing Scott McTominay, who in return saved his skin multiple times with a couple of clutch goals.

The emergence of Kobbie Mainoo, who is a generational talent in all honesty, has also hindered his chances to gain a run of games and form.

Amrabat has ergo had a very minimal rotational role, often being a last resort or plan E if you will. He has only made 13 Premier League appearances, with only 7 of those as a starter. In all competitions, he has made 21 appearances, and it is very unlikely United will make the move permanent.
