ARD Always Rated Him! United win race to French prodigy Mejbri [ESPN]

Not exactly a Slab-Head but a welcome addition to our already highly rated Academy, Mejbri is a name we might be hearing much more about it the next two to three years. More below from ESPN:

Manchester United are set to sign French prodigy Hannibal Mejbri, one of the country’s biggest talents, sources have told ESPN FC.

The 16-year-old attacking midfielder is currently playing at Monaco but a disagreement between him and the club has seen Mejbri not play for their youth team for months.

The Principality club initially didn’t want their prized youth to leave, but have decided to accept United’s offer of €10 million, according to sources.

The Old Trafford outfit beat out Manchester City, Arsenal and Juventus to the France U16 international, who left his grassroots club Boulogne Billancourt in the west suburbs of Paris for Monaco a year ago.

Mejbri, a gifted technical player with great vision and intelligence, is expected to fly to Manchester on Thursday for his medical.
