Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign Sofyan Amrabat on a season-long loan from Fiorentina.

Manchester United have been linked with the Morocco international all summer but have now struck a deal with the Serie A club that includes an option to buy.

The player was always keen on a move to the Premier League club with a permanent deal impossible because of United’s financial fair play situation.

Amrabat was United’s principal midfield target going into deadline day and the Reds are understood to have stumped up a €10million loan fee to secure the services of the Morocco international.

The move comes after United agreed deals for left-back Sergio Reguilon and goalkeeper Altay Bayindir earlier on deadline day.

Reguilon joins on a loan deal from Tottenham, with United agreeing to cover 100 per cent of his £120,000-a-week wages, while Bayindir joins on a permanent deal from Fenerbahce.
