SOFYAN AMRABAT will be offered an escape route following his nightmare loan to Manchester United.

Amrabat, 27, signed for United on an £8.5million loan with £17.2m option to buy last September after a transfer saga that lasted the whole summer.

But his signature is pretty much where the excitement ended for United fans, with Amrabat struggling to make an impact during his limited minutes this season.

The emergence of Kobbie Mainoo, 18, has seen him fall even further down the pecking order and he has featured in just 14 Premier League games.

He’s only started half of those and often been used as a makeshift full-back when called upon.

According to Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport, Juventus want the midfielder, who is on loan to United from Fiorentina, as they look to build a bigger squad.

Juventus have already qualified for the FIFA Club World Cup and look likely to also make next season’s expanded Champions League.

Central midfielder, Adrien Rabiot, 28, is likely to leave Juve after postponing contract talks until the summer.

The Bianconeri see Amrabat as a player that could replace the Frenchman but are prioritising Atalanta’s Teun Koopmeiners, 26.

Koopmeiners has attracted interest from Liverpool and has been one of the Serie A players of the season so far.

Amrabat, for his part, is said to be feeling “nostalgic” for Italy having played for Fiorentina and Hellas Verona in the past.

The Moroccan was Fiorentina captain but returning to La Viola will not be an option as he went on strike to earn his move to Manchester United.

Juve have a good relation with Fiorentina and actually loaned them Amrabat’s replacement, Arthur, making a deal likely if Juve do decide on pursuing Amrabat.
