Sofyan Amrabat has finally completed his transfer to Manchester United from Fiorentina.

Amrabat has been waiting on the move since June, with his patience ultimately paying off less than 90 minutes before the close of the summer transfer window.

Deadline Day: Every confirmed transfer around Europe

He has signed on a one-year loan deal for Man Utd and it is expected that at the end of this term the 27-year-old will complete a permanent move to the Old Trafford club.

The Athletic reports that the player has successfully completed his medical and, more interestingly, gives the secrets of the loan deal away.

How much have Man Utd paid for Amrabat?

Man Utd will pay €10 million simply to secure the services of the player for the duration of the season, and should they wish to sign him at the end of the 2023/24 campaign, they will have to pay another €20m to Fiorentina. On top of this, there are €5m more to potentially follow in bonuses.

In total, it means that Man Utd could pay €35m for Amrabat, which was the fee that Fiorentina were seeking for a permanent transfer before it became apparent that the Red Devils would be unable to fund this because of Financial Fair Play restrictions upon the club.

On top of this, Man Utd will cover the full salary of the Morocco World Cup star. This is expected to come to a relatively low figure for a club like Erik ten Hag’s, with reports suggesting that Amrabat only picks up an annual wage of €1.9m.

In all likelihood, had he moved to Manchester United on a permanent deal, they would be paying a higher wage for the player.

Of course, this is unlikely to concern Amrabat, who showed tremendous desire to join Man Utd, rejecting offers from the likes of Fulham and the Saudi Pro League to push this deal through.
