Sofyan Amrabat admits it as an honour to represent the club of his dreams after joining Manchester United on loan.

The 49-cap international has been waiting patiently for his move to Old Trafford and even trained away from the Fiorentina squad until his switch materialised.

Erik ten Hag had been keen to bolster his midfield options before the transfer window slammed shut and Amrabat was one of his top targets. 

The Moroccan, 27, has been brought in to provide extra quality in the middle of the park and is relishing representing United.

He said: "It is a huge honour to become a Manchester United player. I've had to be patient for this moment but I'm someone who always listens to my heart and now I am representing the club of my dreams. 

"I am a passionate player, I want to bring that energy to the squad and I will put everything into every action I take for the team. 

"I know exactly how Ten Hag likes to work and what he needs from his players. 

"His coaching and guidance developed me so much as a player earlier in my career. 

"I know he will help to bring out the best of my abilities so that I can help the group to be successful this season."

Amrabat announced himself at the 2022 World Cup, where his performances earned rave reviews and inspired Morocco to the semi-finals.

He will now play a key role as the Red Devils look to challenge for silverware on four fronts.

United's football director John Murtough was pleased to get a deal over the line before the deadline.

He said: "We have tracked Sofyan for a long time, so we are really pleased to bring him to Manchester United. 

"His committed, high-energy approach to the game fits perfectly with the group we are building.

"We know that Sofyan’s mentality, dynamism and technical qualities will help the squad as we look to achieve success in all competitions this season."
