DEAL DONE :Manchester United Youngster Agree Long-Term Deal With The Club
Manchester United have reported that they have agreed a long-term deal with young midfielder Hannibal Mejbri.
Hannibal Mejbri arrived in England from Monaco in the summer of 2019, and he has immediately ascended through the ranks to join the Under-23s squad for the 2020-21 season.
The 18-year-old has taken no time at all to subside into Neil Wood’s team, scoring three goals and five assists in 14 Premier League 2 appearances, just as one goal and two assists from four EFL Trophy matches.
Presently, Manchester United have affirmed that the ex-France Under-17s international has signed a long-term contract at the club, only one month after fellow protege Shola Shoretire signed his first professional contract.
Shola Shoretire and Amad Diallo have both been called for first-team action by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, but a shoulder injury kept Hannibal Mejbri from turning out in the second leg of Manchester United’s Europa League last-32 tie against Real Sociedad.
Hannibal Mejbri, 18, began his career with Paris FC at six years old in 2009, and he likewise rose through the academies of A.C.B.B and Monaco prior to tying down a move to Old Trafford in a deal accepted to be worth up to £8.5m.
