Manchester United fans are getting excited over young prospect Hannibal Mejbri after a report from the Times.
According to the Times, there is ‘considerable excitement’ within the club over the summer signing from the French league.
16-year-old Mejbri joined the Old Trafford giants from Monaco for a fee believed to be £9m in the summer (via Goal).
The youngster didn’t make an appearance for the Monaco first team, however, has played eight times for France Under-16s, scoring one goal against the Ivory Coast.
Mejbri has already made three appearances for the north-west club, assisting one goal for the Under-18s (via Transfermarkt). However, the 16-year-old has lost all three games he has played for the United youth teams.
It seems the excitement levels are high with regards to Mejbri after the reports about the club’s thoughts on him, as fans took to Twitter to react.
