Man United aren’t best-pleased with the decision to sign Sofyan Amrabat on loan, though a final decision on his future is yet to be made.

As time has passed under the Glazer regime, a slow rot begun to set in at Manchester United. Decision-making became worse. The atmosphere around the place started to become unsatisfactory.

It’s why INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe came in. Their idea is to fix that mentality, in the hope that they can help United return to their former glory. It will take time.

One of the last business decisions made by the Glazer family was to sign Sofyan Amrabat on loan. The man from Morocco was brought in on deadline day, partly due to an injury crisis decimating the playing squad. It’s fair to say he’s hardly set the world alight.

Until last night, he’d only played 10 minutes since returning from AFCON. He’d start out of position at left-back against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup, putting in a steady performance after overcoming some early nerves.

However, it does not look like that’ll save his United future. According to Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, United are set to make a ‘final decision’ on the player within a next month.

The Red Devils hold the option to purchase Amrabat outright for around £25m, though based on his performances, that looks unlikely.

Calciomercato believe that United and Amrabat are set to part ways this summer, with both the Old Trafford club and his parent club Fiorentina having ‘big regrets’ over the transfer.

For United, it’s just a case of sending Amrabat back to Italy, though Fiorentina will now have to find a new buyer for the midfielder. Likely for a fee less than the pre-agreed £25m United would have paid…

When all is said and done, I just don’t think Amrabat has been anything close to good enough. He has shown glimpses of his quality, but the inconsistency has been there from minute one. The fee would greatly outweigh how many minutes he’d play next season, assuming the squad is close to fully fit.
