Man Utd will have option to re-sign Hannibal Mejbri for €35m if Sevilla buy him

Man United plan contract talks for rising star Hannibal Mejbri

Manchester United have agreed a buy-back clause as part of Hannibal Mejbri’s move to Sevilla this month, according to RMC Sport.

The Tunisia international has joined Sevilla on a short-term loan deal. The La Liga outfit will have the option to buy him for €20 million.

RMC Sport now reveal that United have also agreed a fixed fee to re-sign the 20-year-old in future.

A buy-back clause worth €35m will become valid if Mejbri leaves permanently this summer.

Man Utd could have kept hold of Mejbri

United currently have plenty of central midfielders in the squad, but they are lacking depth behind Bruno Fernandes in the attacking midfield department.

Christian Eriksen has played there in the past for Tottenham Hotspur, but the Dane is no longer in his prime and has been out of touch since his ankle injury.

Mejbri would have been a good understudy for captain Fernandes, but United have decided to cash in on him to improve their finances during the summer.

The club have made a good choice to include a buy-back clause as part of the agreement.

Similar to Mejbri, Alvaro Fernandez is on the verge of joining Benfica on loan with a buy option.

There is no mention over a buy-back clause as part of the deal for the Spaniard. We should know more about the player’s transfer in the next 48 hours or so.

Fernandez could part ways this summer without making a competitive appearance for the club. He spent the first half of the current season on loan with Granada.
