The name of Sofyan Amrabat seems to have gone out completely of the orbit of the FC Barcelona after the signing of Oriol Romeu by the Barcelona group. However, in a recent interview, the mediocentro went back to 'wet' on his wish to play in the Barça when affirming that Xavi Hernández was his big referent while the egarense shined like culé and with the Spanish Selection.

"I do not have idols". It said when being consulted thus, but added: "If you refer you to which saw a lot, Xavi and Zidane". Taking advantage of this answer, the interviewer referred: "Then if you leave you to the Barça, Xavi is the one who will train", to which Amrabat answered between laughs: "1+1 it is equal to 2, eh?". However, the options to negotiate by the international Moroccan lucen very distant, considering that the Fiorentina will not leave him go out by less than 20 million euros.

Amrabat Insists in playing in LaLiga

Previously, the player of 26 years published a video mounting in aquatic motorbike with a song that did reference to the Athletic of Madrid, a direct wink to the group 'colchonero'. Sofyan Tried, without success, go out yielded in January to play in the Barça and in several interviews has left clear his wish to play in LaLiga, although neither descarta test luck in the Premier League.

In this sense, in England take for granted his traspaso to the Manchester United. According to the 'Daily Mail', the 'network devils' already would have reached an agreement with the Fiorentina by 25 'kilos'. The violet group has separated to the Moroccan, taking for granted that it will not renew and that, in front of the possibility to lose him free in 2024, the best is to ensure his traspaso this summer. For now, Amrabat follows without confirming at all and limits to leave winks that do more uncertain his future.

The Barça already has descartado to Amrabat

By his part, the Barça no longer sees in Sofyan Amrabat a possible reinforcement for the 2023/24. The managerial culé prioritised a more profitable option with Oriol Romeu and, for the moment, the priority keeps on being to speed up the exit of several 'descartes' (Lenglet, Dest, Kessié...) To do box and, probably, go to by another reinforcement. However, the club is by the work of fichar a mediapunta or a forward and no another offensive pivote.
