Sofyan Amrabat is attracting huge attention from football giants. It seems that Barcelona and Manchester United are the clubs that most want to see the Moroccan in their team. Amrabat surprised everyone with his performance at World Cup.
He was one of the key players of Morocco, and he helped his team reach the semi-finals. His brother, Nordin, revealed in an interview with the media that Amrabat does not want to play in 'average' teams. His goal is to play in top teams.
‘He wants to go to the top, you are not going to trade Italy for the middle bracket of the Premier League,’ Nordin said, as quoted by METRO. ‘At Barcelona, he is high on the list but you know Barca’s financial situation.'
Nordin emphasized that Amrabat is thinking about Manchester United and Barcelona. Erik ten Hag is particularly interested in the Moroccan, who could help Manchester achieve their goals next season. ‘Of course you never know, it will be a strong competition when you see which names are going.
But my brother now has the intention to play in the top, preferably in Spain or England, I think. Ten Hag is now looking for a striker, he wants that first. From there he will see what is possible. But I know that Ten Hag is charmed by my brother, he broke through under him and they have a good relationship, so who knows.’
Sofyan Amrabat and his statement
Sofyan Amrabat commented on his potential departure before the final of the Conference League.
The Moroccan would like to play at the highest level. It seems that his biggest wish is to play in England, but he has not ruled out the option of playing in Spain or Italy. However, judging by his brother's statements, Sofyan could end up in Manchester United.
‘Of course, the Premier League is a fantastic league, one of the strongest in the world. It would be nice to play there one day, but it’s not that I want only to go to England, because Spain is nice, Serie A is a nice league.
Football has changed a lot, it’s more physical, you have more to be an athlete, the tempo and intensity is higher. Of course, in England the intensity is very high, so I think it could suit me.’
