Manchester United have reportedly approached an AS Monaco youngster, making him potentially the club’s first signing of the summer.
Though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men have been linked with near enough every player in Europe, no confirmed deals have been announced yet.
The Norwegian clearly has a lot of work to do this transfer window but he has discussed bringing United back to it’s high standards gradually rather than an overhaul.
Solskjaer has also stated his desire to bring in younger players and develop them rather than spend huge fees on ready made stars.
The Red Devils’ approach may be smarter in the long run as they probably won’t have to spend as much and it is easier to lure in potential than it is pure talent.

It seems this potential signing is more for the future than the first team and it’s not one Manchester United have are shy of doing.
The club have long adopted the method of nurturing their academy products as well as signing youngsters from abroad and developing them.
Not much is known of Hannibal Mejbri but United are clearly keen on getting their hands on him and should they sign him for free, there’s hardly any risk of failure.
