Manchester United have sealed the £9.3million transfer of highly-rated Monaco teenager Hannibal Mejbri, subject to FIFA clearance.

The 16-year-old’s future has been subject to widespread speculation this summer, with Leicester and Tottenham among those understood to be after the midfielder.

Mejbri’s father, Lofti, cited a breakdown in trust with Monaco led to his son’s departure.

“Something bad happened,” he told Le Parisien. “For our family, it was very hard to live. It’s a real shock, a trauma. Mistakes were made.

“From there, I consider that the relationship of trust between the club and our family is destroyed. Something broke. It’s hard to keep working with people when there’s such a lack of trust.”
