Yeah, it's pretty strange to be taking the piss with this. Surely resentment from first team recruiting seeping into every crevice.
More than anything, this is where I want to see us ultra competitive. Of course I'd like to see those big players we're linked with for the first team arrive, badly. But if we're thinking long-term and having a vision to change back to a winning culture, signing the top youth prospects and building teams from our academy is exactly what we should be striving for.
My biggest hopes for Solskjaer is for him to guide youngsters, improve them and trust in them.
I heard that United are still working on bringing in Rayan Cherki from Lyon as well. He is the best in his age group. A lot of talents for next season to watch. If this guy really worth 10m, he probably will stick into U-23 directly?
Signed a new contract with Lyon recently didn't he?
Cherki has signed a new long term contract with Lyon so won't be moving anywhere soon.
I can see Mejbri playing in the u23 team next season at some point if he progresses like we all hope.
How is this in any way similar to Bebe?
Yup he did, so I'd imagine that one is dead in the water.
Can we use this guy as back up to McTominay this season? We need some cover
No. He's 16 ffs.
Messi had his debut at 16, hasn’t he? I don’t mean to play him a lot, just here and there
He'll murder the opposing defenses. Sign the kid up!
he's got a world class name and world class hair already
So is he one of the 2 signings we are working on all this summer?
What a name! Also he can sign a long term contract when he is only 16?
Good question. I'd like to know as well. Can't find anything on it here.
No he can't.
Quite possibly the worst YouTube compilations ever. 90% overhit passes and and wasted set pieces, 10% tap-ins and getting fouled. He must be doing his worst for the cameras if he's worth 10m.
Great to see us competing for the top prospects. As others have said, can't tell much from his highlights yet really, will have to wait and see (if this does go through).
I do hope the bad blood thing is waffle though. It'd be a shame to sour the waters with a team like Monaco over a 16-year old.
Do some special players his age not sometimes have an ‘automatic’ full contract agreed for when they turn 18?
He’s about 13-14 years old on the clips I’ve seen of him..
10 million for a 16 year old who will probably join our U18s, that's some deal. Shows how highly club rates him.
He looks a talented dribbler, passer and technical midfielder from his clips at youth level
He's 12 or 13 in alot of the YouTube vids..
You won't find out much about him through youtube, he is too young to play in an age class where games are broadcasted on a regular basis.
These comps are often made out of games from short tournaments which are broadcasted (because U17 league games sure as hell aren't)
I also don't know if he'll be thrown in with the reserve immediatly, he still hasn't played in U19 yet, going from U17 to Reserve can be a bit rough.
In any case I don't understand why some people complain about kids being signed, this has nothing to do with the 1st team and doesn't impact others transfers negatively whatsoever
We should have gone for Xavi Simons actually.
Instead of Mejbri? If so, why?
A nice run at 2:05 of the vid playing for the French youth team. The footage at the start where he gets fouled and is wearing the #10 is from when he was 12 or 13 playing for FC Paris before he moved to Monaco in 2016.
With that hair, I suspect it's Fellaini in disguise trying to get back into the club
Seriously, never heard of the guy until today
Nicky Butt's got to have something to do in his new role.
This club likes their talent with as wild hair as possible.
That being said, I am super happy about this signing! He's an extremely interesting talent who has a chance at really becoming something noteworthy. Again the club is showing intent when they want to bring youth in an develop them.
You can't compare a young player to the third best player of all time!
It’s actually funny, because it’s true.
when has a 16 year old ever gone straight into the first team squad for United? you are talking some proper nonsense.
if that is the case would be our first signing of this ilk since Ronaldo not counting martial yet needs to up his consistency level.
More like the original Pogba signing imo. We signed him as the captain of the French youth team.
In terms of style the clips make him look like a Modric style player
How do you know we didn’t?
Please don't tell me Pele and Maradona were better than Messi.
