A Proud Moment: Joining Manchester United as a Player
Sofyan Amrabat, who recently joined Manchester United on loan during the summer transfer window, expressed his excitement as the club’s newest signing.
Manchester United secured the loan signing of Sofyan Amrabat in the final hours before Friday’s transfer deadline, making him one of three new additions at Old Trafford. The Red Devils finalized the deal for the midfielder from Fiorentina, who played a crucial role in Morocco’s journey to the World Cup semi-finals. The loan agreement involves a fee of 10 million euros, with an option to purchase for an additional 25 million euros next year.
Amrabat was not the only arrival on deadline day, as Turkish goalkeeper Altay Bayindir from Fenerbahce and Spanish left-back Sergio Reguilon, formerly with Spurs, also joined Manchester United.
Expressing his delight, Amrabat said, “I’ve been patiently waiting for this moment, and now I am proud to represent the club of my dreams.” He continued, “Becoming a Manchester United player is an immense privilege. I am a passionate individual and I aim to bring that energy to the squad. I will give my all in every action for the team. I’m familiar with Erik ten Hag’s coaching style and his expectations from his players. His guidance greatly contributed to my development earlier in my career, and I know he will help me showcase my abilities to the fullest, ultimately leading to success for the team this season.”
