Hannibal had been linked with a move to Everton, but appears to have favoured a move to Sevilla instead.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Hannibal will be joining the La Liga outfit on loan until the end of the season.

But despite the move being a loan, his one minute cameo against Wigan in the FA Cup may have been his last ever appearance for Man Utd.

It has been reported that Sevilla have agreed a buy option with the Red Devils that would allow them to sign the 20-year-old permanently in the summer.

The option is said to be worth around £17.2million and has been signed off by the Manchester giants.

There was suggestion that United were planning on adding a buy-back clause in to the youngsters contract, but it is understood that has not been included.

Hannibal is expected to fly to Spain on Sunday before completing his medical next week.

The attacking midfielder leaves Old Trafford having made 13 first team appearances and scoring one goal.

He spent last season on loan in the Championship with Birmingham City where he gained valuable first team experience making 41 appearances in all competitions.

Should everything be sealed and signed in time, Hannibal could make his debut for Sevilla as soon as next weekend when they take on La Liga leaders Girona.

Hannibal was left out of the match day squad for United’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.
