Man Utd to hold 'contract talks' with player involved in ugly training ground bust-up

Man Utd to hold 'contract talks' with player involved in ugly training ground bust-up

Fans will be delighted.

Manchester United are set to hold discussions with Hannibal Mejbri over a new long-term contract at Old Trafford, according to reports.

Mejbri's contract expires in June but it is thought United will trigger a one-year extension to keep him at the club until 2025.

While the 20-year-old's future is not considered an urgent issue, the Red Devils have plans to discuss a deal in the near future, claim the Manchester Evening News.

Mejbri signed for United in a deal worth a reported €10million (£8.7m) in 2019 from Monaco and was handed his first full 90 minutes during United's 1-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.

While the midfielder scored his first goal for the club during a 3-1 defeat to Brighton after coming off the bench.

However, it hasn't always been plain sailing for the Tunisia international, who was allegedly involved in a training ground bust-up with former United left-back Alex Telles back in May 2022.

It was reported that interim manager Ralf Rangnick had to intervene in order to stop the altercation between the two players who got into a ‘full on scrap’.

Fortunately, Mejbri hasn't let his temper spill over onto the pitch and has been one of United's few shining lights in recent games.

Manager Erik ten Hag hailed the youngster's impact at Turf Moor, stating after the game: "We brought some energy in the team.

"The pressing of Rasmus Hojlund and Hannibal, the togetherness, how they start the moments of the pressing, the timing was very good. The togetherness with Bruno and Rashy was very good.

"We controlled the game in that spell because they started the pressing so well and once they were beaten, there was a recovery and Hannibal did that very good."
