United have been linked with the youngster in recent weeks and were ready to launch an initial €4m bid for the Monaco wantaway.

The relationship between the midfielder's family and the Ligue 1 side turned sour as they demanded for the player's release.

But Monaco held firm on their position towards Hannibal, whose contract does not expire until 2021.

The French side wanted to turn a profit on Hannibal, who has been linked with Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Lyon, instead of terminating his current deal and allowing him to walk on a free.

Hannibal will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's third summing signing following the acquisitions of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

The Red Devils have also been linked with Juventus star Paulo Dybala, 25, as part of a swap deal for Inter Milan target Romelu Lukaku.
