It’s no longer news that the summer transfer window came to a close on Thursday in England, but Manchester United haven’t put an end to their involvement in the transfer markets.
According the club’s official site on Sunday, the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Ligue 1 powerhouse Monaco for the services of young and versatile midfielder midfielder Hannibal Mejbri.
The 16-year-old is presently one of the most talked-about teenagers in the world and he’s tipped to become the next great player to come out of Monaco’s famous academy.
Linked with different top European clubs last month, Mejbri reportedly chose United due to his love for the club and his desire to emulate Paul Pogba’s path to greatness.
It is revealed, according to Manchester Evening News, that the Old Trafford outfit paid a sum of £9m to Monaco before reaching an agreement with the French side.
However, the player’s switch to the Theater of Dreams remains incomplete until FIFA approves the transfer deal to avoid breaching the body’s rules and regulations.
This will come as good news to U18 manager Neil Ryan who is very much keen on adding quality youngsters to his team ahead of 2019-20 season.
