Manchester United travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon. 

The Red Devils defeated Wolves 1-0 in their first Premier League match of the season on Monday, with Raphael Varane’s second-half header enough to earn Erik ten Hag’s side all three points.

Spurs will undoubtedly provide a tough test for United, though, and Ten Hag will be hoping that his side show improvement after a relatively lacklustre showing last time out.

United have added Andre Onana, Mason Mount and Rasmus Hojlund to their ranks so far this summer, and both Onana and Mount made their debuts on Monday evening.

It appears that the Manchester outfit are keen to make at least one more signing, but their top target is now reportedly becoming frustrated.

According to 90min, Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat is growing frustrated at the lack of progress made surrounding his proposed move to Old Trafford.

Amrabat remains a target for Manchester United but is reportedly becoming frustrated

The Morocco international impressed for his country at the World Cup in Qatar last year, and United have since shown an interest.

It is claimed that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs, however it is dependent on the Red Devils selling one of their current crop of midfielders.

A fee of £29 has been agreed for the 26-year-old, the report claims, which may reflect the fact that his current contract is set to expire next summer.

Brazilian Fred completed a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce last week, and Scotland international Scott McTominay has also been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old Scot was the subject of a £30 million offer from West Ham United earlier this month, but the bid was rejected by United as they are holding out for more than £40 million and the Hammers have since signed James Ward-Prowse from Southampton.

Amrabat joined Fiorentina from fellow Italian side Hellas Verona back in 2020 and has since made 107 appearances for the club across all competitions.
