Manchester United midfielder set to leave after INEOS make decision

Manchester United are in for a hectic summer in the transfer market, with INEOS expected to overhaul the squad completely and there are already a number of players that are almost certain to leave the club.

Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood are likely to be sold to generate funds for incoming transfers, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Christian Eriksen and Harry Maguire all potentially up for grabs as well.

Sofyan Amrabat was brought in on deadline day last year to bolster Erik ten Hag’s midfield but now, it is being reported that INEOS have made a decision on the Morocco international’s future.

According to Football Insider, it has been decided that United will note exercise the clause that would see Amrabat’s loan deal be made permanent at the end of this year. Instead, he will return to Fiorentina, where he has one more year remaining on his contract.

As per the report, despite paying £8.5m for the season-long loan, United are not keen on extending his stay after being disappointed with his performances this season.

Amrabat has started just nine games in the Premier League this season, making an additional 11 appearances as a substitute.

Scott McTominay is another midfielder with an uncertain future at Old Trafford. The Scotland international has interest from other Premier League clubs.

There are also question marks over Casemiro’s future following a questionable second year at the club, with the former Real Madrid star also dropped from the latest Brazil squad.

  1. I believed that the major upset as experienced by the team performance this season should solely rest on the manager. I remember vividly that I made mention of the ETH error (in this same column) of selling some of the already existing players who were replaced by his crust of players from Ajax were his undoings. Releasing players like Fred, Elanga Pereira, D James, Mejbri, Tahiti Chong,, rejected loan players like Sabitzer, feud with Sancho, and others.
    These set of players were the ones that gave you your first Trophy, played to secure your spot in UCL and gave you good riddance to justify your second spell with the club the following season. But he allowed his ego to drive him on till he lost his deserved respect in the dressing room. Like that adage that says ” Absence makes the heart to go founder, his managerial ego made him to lose his respect for Ronaldo and the treatment was thus greeted with myopic admirations by some pundits, not knowing that that will be the genesis of all mother of problems for him, as if that was not enough, Sancho was his next victim and that too was averagely supported. He needed not to be advised when things started getting worse, records then was ill broken players lack luster performance began to set in, some mendacious pundits denied that Dressing room decorum was still intact. Then came the repeat of what transpired between him and Sancho, this time with Garnacho but nobody needed to tell him what to do as the scenario died a premature death. But this season come what may has been termed “hell” out of Old Trafford as the latter known as a nightmare a place to come for all her opponents has been turned a place for even league 1 opponents to cruise their nights and take something away from there. So Erik should be responsible for all that would be effect of whatever fate determines for him at the end of the season by his new employer.

    1. Yes he’s made mistakes but look back on Sir Alex’s early seasons. Average 1st year, good 2nd, poor 3rd but they didn’t crucify him they gave him time and he rewarded their faith big time.
      Of course that huge success has hung like a millstone round the neck of every manager since. Be patient.

      1. That’s very true mate and the same will happen to Man City when Pep leaves time is needed top coaches don’t grow on trees Man It’d is the biggest club in the world and they are struggling to find the right coach

    2. You are absolutely right.
      Selling of De Gea for Onana was a massive fault.
      Problems starts from here. Disrespecting Ronalfo. Selling if Fred to bring in Amrabat…
      Malacia did not play gor all season.

      See performance of Elanga at Forest. Anthony has been a big disappointment.

      I think he is respinsible for where the team is today.

      Same thing Van Gaal did when he came. Selling of almost all important players to bring in the likes schwiensteiger (who already passed his best, daley blind, darmian etc….)

  2. what team can cope with 60-70 injuries therfore having to play players put of position. if you look at bench we have had kids has subs. even so I’m disappointed that we finished 8th I personally think that isn’t to bad considering. imagine if we had a full squad throughout the season what position would we finish?????

    1. You are very correct concerning the injury, but it is the fault of the coach, it shows how incompetent he is.

      You can’t be filling in same set of players in all competitions and expect a great result from them, the only players that was lucky was Bruno, he need to learn more and listen to extension, I sincerely did not which we send him through the exit, but he can’t run this team in a new season as he did this season.

      He reject sabitzer, now he is in the final of champions League, same as Sancho… Your choice of prayers are bunch of errors.

  3. Player injuries have played a huge part in a horrible season. However, I also player management has been an issue which gives fans the impression of arrogance on the part of the manager.
    We don’t seem to have a particular style of playing or even a plan B. We’re not strong in tackles and lose the ball, our passing is poor at the best of times. We certainly need to rebuild the midfield because most teams seem to have a party running through the midfield. A proper, high quality DM is critical

  4. Definitely no team can cope with 60-70 injuries. So then what was e reason for that many injuries? We don’t play pressing game like liv did & got their injuries & fatigue.
    The big problem is this fella doesn’t have a bloody game plan. The team is devoid of leaders & guys with a winning mentality. He disrespected & chased out ronaldo,the only guy with that mentality, instead of capitalising on him and spreading his warrior mindset. Dumb coach. But that being said, we still need to keep him for e sole reason being there isn’t much quality options and just hope he does something next season.

  5. Sir Alex Ferguson set the standard so high that any coach coming in, since he retired,
    are finding it difficult to meet these expectations.
    Fans are used to winning trophies evwry season, man u was always in the top 2,only 2 or 3 times third.

    As long as these standard are not met there will always be critics.
