Manchester United Signs Injured Sofiane Amrabat

The British newspaper The Mirror reported that Manchester United had signed Sofiane Amrabat despite discovering the Moroccan player was injured while undergoing a medical before completing his joining process.

Transfer Details

At the end of the 2023 summer transfer market, Amrabat moved to United on a one-season loan from Fiorentina for around £8.5m, with a clause allowing the Red Devils to buy the Moroccan player next summer for £21.5 million.

Injury Discovery

According to The Mirror, United officials discovered that Amrabat was suffering from a minor back injury during a medical examination he underwent before completing procedures for his move to the English team.

Despite the injury, the deal was still completed in the final hours of the 2023 summer transfer period as United officials did not believe Amrabat’s injury was serious.

Amrabat, 27, admitted that he suffered a severe back injury while participating in the Qatar 2022 World Cup for Morocco.

The injury caused him to miss Morocco’s historic penalty shootout victory over Spain in the World Cup final in Qatar. However, he persevered and even played the full 120 minutes after receiving painkillers before the match.

Absence from Manchester United

Due to his back injury, Amrabat missed Manchester United’s last 3-1 win against Arsenal in the English Premier League. No date has been set for the Moroccan star’s first appearance in a Red Devils shirt.
