Mahmoud El Boustati, Amrabat’s agent, claimed the midfielder had rejected other offers during the summer to eventually seal a move to Man United.

‘You had a dream that saw you playing under the lights in The Theatre of Dreams,’ El Boustati wrote on Instagram.

‘You put your trust in me to make that dream a reality, and for 15 years we have been on this journey together that has seen you grow from a young boy with raw talent and a passion for football, to the man you are today, a world class player.

‘After your performances at the World Cup, the biggest stage of all, the whole world was speaking your name. 

‘They all saw what I always knew, your talent was undeniable.

‘My belief in you has never changed and even though these last three months were difficult with so many obstacles, you turned down every club that came calling because you had faith that your dream would come true. One club.

‘We made it brother, a promise kept, a dream realised. The Theatre of Dreams awaits.’

Man United had been in tough negotiations with the Fiorentina all summer to sign Amrabat, who had starred in Morocco’s run to the World Cup semi-finals in Qatar.

Fiorentina had been pushing for United to sign the 27-year-old on a permanent deal before eventually settling for a loan.

The Moroccan had missed Fiorentina’s opening fixtures of the season and was training alone ahead of the loan switch. 

Amrabat could make his first appearance for his new club when Man United host Brighton at Old Trafford on September 16.
