Manchester United have held further talks over a proposed move for highly-rated Monaco teenager Hannibal Mejbri.
The 16-year-old midfielder has declared he wants to leave Monaco after his father, Lotfi, a former Tunisian footballer, said the relationship with the club had broken down citing a matter of trust.
The family are trying to annul his contract with Monaco which runs until 2021 and there is a chance United could sign him on a free transfer.
However, Monaco will push for compensation as they believe the contract is binding. United were rebuffed in a bid to sign Mejbri back in January.
The spring-haired midfielder has been followed by Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea for the past three seasons.
United however hope that their persistence can help convince him he has a greater chance of making the first team at Old Trafford.
