Mejbri looks an exciting prospect after catching the eye at youth level with Monaco and France, and should be one for the future at Old Trafford.
The 16-year-old was recently linked with Man Utd by Le Parisien, and it now seems he’s only one step away from moving to the club in what fans will hope is a good deal for them for the long run.
United have a proud record of developing and trusting youth, so MUFC looks an ideal place for Mejbri to continue his development.

Although it was a relatively quiet summer for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, this looks another smart piece of business to invest in youth, having also signed two top young British talents in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
