The January transfer window has come to and end, and by god was it exciting and full of dross in equal measures! A lot of deadline day signings were made, as expected, with some being panic buys and others a fruition of weeks of pursuing, as is the case with every window. So, without further ado, let us take a look at that one big transfer rumour for the Premier League’s big six clubs for the last window day…
#6 Manchester United
Red Devils make last-minute move for youngster?
Manchester United have had quite a good January, both in terms of getting players to commit their long-term futures and get positive results on the field. On the buying front, the club, despite some big rumours, did not make a move for any player, but now, RMC Sport has claimed that the Red Devils were in talks for several days about a possible deal for 16-year-old starlet Hannibal Mejbri, who wants to apparently quit Monaco.
Many clubs were reportedly interested in the teenager, as per the report, but it is United who have been credited with leading the race, continuing discussions after apparently making a bid. The midfielder has not played for Monaco’s first-team yet, but has already appeared for France at U-16 level and is seen as one of the hottest young prospects at the club.
