Fans agree Hannibal Mejbri to Borussia Dortmund makes sense under one condition

Fans agree Hannibal Mejbri to Borussia Dortmund makes sense under one condition

Man Utd midfielder Hannibal Mejbri has been linked with a move to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Borussia Dortmund are interested in bringing Hannibal Mejbri to the Westfalenstadion this summer, according to reports, and fans agree it would make sense under one condition.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder, who joined Manchester United from Monaco in 2019 for a reported €10million [£8.6m], has made just three senior appearances for the Premier League side.

He did, however, impress during a productive loan spell at Championship side Birmingham City last season.

Mejbri made a total of 41 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, notching a goal and six assists in that time.

Now, it appears his future is up in the air after returning to United.

Erik ten Hag has already made a statement with the sale of academy product Zidane Iqbal, who will join Dutch side FC Utrecht for a reported €1million [£855,000].

And Mejbri is said to be attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

In fact, Dortmund are willing to pay a fee in the region of €15million [£12.9 million] for the Tunisia international, according to the Manchester Evening News – a fee that would include performance-related add-ons.

The report suggests United will give Mejbri an opportunity to impress during their pre-season tour. That being said, they could 'entertain' offers if they decide he isn't ready for first-team action.

Whether United would allow the playmaker to leave on a permanent basis is unknown, but many fans agree that the club should include a buy-back clause if they do decide to sell up.

Here's how supporters reacted on social media after the Dortmund news emerged.

One said: "Buy-back clause should be included," while another wrote: "Would be wise to sell him with a buy back option."

A third commented: "This one I can understand, IF and ONLY IF, United had a competent negotiating team and applied a buy back clause after a three season stint for a decent amount. He’s another young talent with a lot of quality there that can be untapped at Dortmund."

A fourth added: "BVB gotta up that by another 10M & Utd gotta put a buy-back option on it. Then it's calm."
