Hannibal Mejbri is exciting everyone associated with Manchester United.

The 17-year-old was brought in from Monaco for a €10m fee in August, proving just how highly rated the young midfielder is.

The Frenchman can play in central midfield or further forward and possesses a wonderful dribbling ability and passing range.

Manchester Evening News have suggested that Mejbri could be the next owner of the fabled no.7 shirt at Old Trafford if it remains vacant for long enough and he progresses into the first-team.

He is a special talent and we can’t wait to see him develop over the next few seasons.
