Manchester United have submitted a bid for Hannibal Mejbri of AS Monaco, according to the Mirror.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already made his first signing of the summer with the acquisition of 21-year-old Daniel James from Swansea, and he is looking to add another youngster to the squad in the form of Mejbri.
The 16-year-old appealed to Ligue de Football Professionnel to have his contract with Monaco terminated to allow him to join the English club on a free transfer in January, but that was rejected.

Now the Red Devils have submitted a bid of £3.5million to Les Monégasques instead to try and land their second signing of the window.
Despite having not played a single senior game for eight-time Ligue 1 champions, the midfielder is attracting more and more attention from other top European clubs, meaning United will face stiff competition to secure his signature.
France Under-16 boss Jose Alcocer gave the Monaco academy product his debut in September 2018 in a friendly against Denmark and he has since gone on to make 11 more appearances for the team.
