Premier League giants Manchester United have agreed on a £9m deal for highly rated AS Monaco midfielder Hannis Mejbri according to the Daily Mail.
It was revealed that Manchester United officials met with the player’s agent, Jorge Menses, to finalize a deal for him.
Hannis Mejbri fell out with his French Ligue 1 club and that has prompted Manchester United to swoop in on the 16-year-old midfielder.
Manchester United have signed just two players this summer and Hannis Mejbri could be the third player though he’s expected to join the youth team when he signs for the Red Devils.
Welsh international Daniel James joined Manchester United earlier this summer as their first signing.
The 21-year-old signed for Manchester United from English Championship club Swansea City after a stellar season with the Welsh club.
The Red Devils were said to have paid £15m upfront in addition to £3m in bonuses.
Manchester United went on to make their second signing of the summer with Aaron Wan-Bissaka who joined in a deal worth £50m thus making him the fifth most expensive player in the history of the club.
Only Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Angel Di Maria and Fred have been involved in more expensive transfers than that of Wan-Bissaka who joined from Crystal Palace.
