Manchester United are looking to sign Monaco teenager Hannibal Mejbri on a free transfer and have submitted a substantial offer to the player, according to reports.

The Frenchman, 16, reportedly rejected Arsenal in favour of a move to Monaco in 2017 despite having a previous trial spell with the Gunners in 2016.

Mejbri could be available for nothing in the summer if, as rumoured, his current five-year deal that keeps him at the Ligue 1 side until 2021 has not been ‘ratified properly’.

The French outfit are in a dispute with the player but they deny the claims and hope to hang onto one of their hottest prospects.

The Daily Express claimed that Mejbri ‘could be headed to Old Trafford’ in a late deadline day deal back at the end of January.

And now RMC says that United have made a ‘big offer’ to Mejbri with a huge signing-on fee and more wages than Monaco would offer.

The reports adds that talks between United and Mejbri have been ongoing for ‘several months’ with the France under-16 international’s family keen to ‘break’ his contract with Monaco.
