Possible double deal: Glazers eye Man Utd moves for “monster” and “top talent” before deadline

It is within the realm of possibility for Manchester United and its current owners, the Glazers, to bring in two new midfielders for Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford before the transfer deadline.

Is there a chance that Ryan Gravenberch and Sofyan Amrabat will be joining Manchester United?

According to reports from 90min, Ryan Gravenberch, a midfielder from Bayern Munich, has expressed his desire to move to the Premier League, particularly to Manchester United and Liverpool. The source indicates that Manchester United is also showing interest in Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina. However, any potential transfer involving these players would be contingent on outgoing sales. The possibility exists that both Gravenberch and Amrabat could become part of the Old Trafford squad this transfer window. The outcome depends on the terms of Gravenberch’s potential agreement, whether it’s a permanent move or a loan deal, as well as the feasibility of arranging player departures.

Reports from The Mirror suggest that Manchester United and Liverpool are closely monitoring Bayern Munich’s valuation of Gravenberch, which is approximately £22 million.

There are upcoming ‘showdown negotiations’ regarding Gravenberch’s future at Bayern Munich, with two contract options on the table for the Dutch international.

Amrabat could potentially receive an offer from Manchester United ranging from €25 to €30 million in the coming days, as reported by La Nazione via Viola News. Fiorentina’s Chief Executive, Joe Barone, has issued a statement indicating the club’s readiness for both incoming and outgoing transfers.

Could Ryan Gravenberch and Sofyan Amrabat be valuable additions to Manchester United?

Sofyan Amrabat has been previously praised as a formidable presence in midfield, with journalist Carlo Garganese referring to him as a “monster” for his skills in that position. Given his abilities, Manchester United’s interest in having the Moroccan international bolster their defensive midfield makes sense.

According to Transfermarkt, Amrabat had 49 appearances for Fiorentina across all competitions last season, aiding the team in reaching the final of the Europa Conference League.

In midfield, Amrabat displayed excellent control and maintained an impressive average pass success rate of 89.8% in Serie A during the previous season, as per WhoScored.

On the other hand, Gravenberch made 33 appearances in the 2022-23 season, contributing one goal and one assist. His playing time as a starter was limited prior to his move to Bayern Munich.

Gravenberch excels in creating scoring opportunities compared to his counterparts in the top five European leagues. Over the past year, he has successfully executed around 4.03 of these actions per 90 minutes, placing him in the 93rd percentile for this metric, according to FBRef.

A potential move to Manchester United could provide Gravenberch with the opportunity to reignite his career and harness his significant potential. In 2021, he was acknowledged as a “top talent” by Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig.
