iorentina have told Sofyan Amrabat to focus on starting the season with them after rumours of a £25million bid by Manchester United were denied.
The Italian club’s general manager, Joe Barone, has spoken out on the Moroccan midfielder’s future to assure Viola fans that Amrabat is not on the verge of leaving.
United and, in recent months, both Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with the player.
“[Amrabat] is very attached to the team and to me too, we speak in English and we talk almost every day,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“At the moment nothing official has arrived, I told him to come here concentrated because he is a Fiorentina player.
“He must have his head here and be ready for the start of the league, then if something comes we’ll evaluate it. We already have a very strong midfield department.”
United are tipped to push for a new striker as Erik ten Hag’s next signing with Rasmus Hojlund wanted for £60m.
