Mejbri looks a big prospect and looks set to become the Red Devils’ third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of two other exciting youngsters in the form of right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and winger Daniel James.
United are known for their commitment to bringing through top young talent, as academy stars like Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong and James Garner have all caught the eye during pre-season as they look set for first-team roles under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
If Mejbri can continue his development it might not be that long before MUFC fans see him in the first-team as well.
