Bayern Munich and Manchester United show interest in Monaco starlet


Monaco face a battle to keep hold of starlet Hannibal Mejbri as Bayern Munich and Manchester United are showing a strong interest.

The 16-year-old has caught the eye of scouts from both clubs, and United are reported to have failed with an approach just before the winter transfer window closed.

They are expected to make a fresh approach at the end of the season, but could face strong competition from Bayern, who are also keeping a close eye on his situation.

Monaco are in a strong position as he is under contract until 2021, but the player’s father has been quoted as saying they are looking to move him on sooner rather than later.

Les Rouges et Blancs are determined to keep hold, but their resolve could be severely tested if either United or Bayern come in with a big-money offer in the summer.
