MANCHESTER UNITED have received a boost in their bid to sign Monaco wonderkid Hannibal Mejbri.
The Red Devils have offered £3.5m for the 16-year-old and it could be enough as the youngster wants to leave the principality club.
Mejbri’s family have previously tried to annul his contract – which runs until 2021 – but France’s league association ruled against it.
They hope to appeal the decision so that the youngster can leave.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Lyon are also interested.
