Sevilla have unveiled Hannibal Mejbri from Premier League side Manchester United on a short term deal.
A statement by Sevilla announced the arrival of the French-born Tunisian international midfield star by saying: “We have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the loan signing until the end of the season with an option to buy for 20-year-old French-born Tunisian international Hannibal Mejbri.
“Born in Ivry-sur-Seine, he joined Paris FC’s academy aged nine, where he was soon being scouted by some of the biggest clubs in Europe. After a brief spell at AC Boulogne-Billancour he joined AS Monaco’s academy.
“A year later, aged just 16, he signed for Manchester United ahead of the 2019-20 season in which he played for both the U18 and U23 sides.”
Internationally, he represented France U16, and U17 levels before accepting a call-up to the Tunisian national team, his parents’ native country, in 2021.
He appeared at the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup where Tunisia finished runners-up after losing the final in extra time 2-0 to Algeria. He was also included in Tunisia’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar where he appeared in the group stage against Denmark.
