Three clubs interested in Manchester United starlet as January transfer decision made

Three clubs are interested in signing Hannibal Mejbri on loan in the January transfer window and the Manchester United midfielder has made his decision on the interest.

Hannibal, 20, has made nine appearances for United so far this term, with five of those coming from the bench.

The Tunisian midfielder made a positive impact when he came into the side for his only Premier League start against Burnley in late September, where Erik ten Hag’s side won 1-0.

But since then, he has only made three short substitution appearances in the league, and a January loan would present the opportunity for him to get important game-time in the second half of the season.

United are open to letting the midfielder leave on a temporary basis next month, and Hannibal has decided not to join Tunisia at the Africa Cup of Nations so that he can immediately be available for a team should he join in January.

According to Fabrizio Romano, three clubs are interested in Hannibal on loan, and they all want him to be available for fixtures in January and February.

Those clubs are Sevilla, Lyon and Freiburg – all of which would present Hannibal with the highest level of football. He spent last term on loan at Championship club Birmingham City.

Romano has also added that talks are underway to extend Hannibal’s deal at Old Trafford. His contract runs out in June 2024.

Hanniabl most recently appeared in the closing stages of United’s 3-2 comeback win against Aston Villa. He came off the bench alongside fellow academy starlet Dan Gore.
