Man Utd player involved in training ground fight creates transfer problem for Erik ten Hag
| Last updated
Manchester United’s Hannibal Mejbri has emerged as a target for Besiktas, according to a fresh report.
According to Fanatik, the Turkish Super Lig side are interested in signing the United youngster ahead of the country’s transfer window closing on Friday.
Besiktas have already reportedly made contact with United, offering a loan deal with an option to buy, that was duly turned down by the Old Trafford club.
And after the initial snub, the Turkish side has reportedly returned with another proposal for a dry loan.
United however are yet to make a decision on whether to retain the player at Old Trafford.
One of Hannibal’s more memorable moments with the United senior team was a training ground bust-up with Alex Telles during Ralf Rangnick's tumultuous reign - an incident which the Sun claimed left the rest of the United squad “stunned”.
However, the youngster impressed in pre-season, and Erik ten Hag is in turn, undecided over whether to allow the player to leave on loan in the coming days.
Besiktas are said to be waiting on Ten Hag’s final decision.
Last term Hannibal was on loan at Birmingham, where he claimed a goal and six assists in his 41 appearances. This campaign, however, the 20-year-old is yet to feature for United this season.
But Ten Hag will not want to lose any talent from his forward line, given the situation of Antony and Jadon Sancho.
Antony has agreed to take time away from the United until further notice while he fights three women’s assault accusations. The winger vehemently denies all the claims made against him.
Elsewhere, Ten Hag’s tension with Sancho went public earlier this month after the England forward publicly refuted his manager’s claim he was not in the United’s squad against Arsenal because of performances in training.
The 23-year-old winger stated Ten Hag’s comments were “completely untrue” in an outburst on social media, adding that he had become a “scapegoat”.
