And Mejbri may just have played his last game for the club with reports claiming there is a permanent transfer option included in the loan contract.

That means his one minute cameo against Wigan in the FA Cup may have been his last ever appearance for Man Utd – despite Sir Jim Ratcliffe allegedly insisting on a buy-back clause.

Mejbri will now head to LaLiga – where he will be joined in the Sevilla squad by ex-Red Devils winger Adnan Januzaj.

A United statement read: “Manchester United midfielder Hannibal has joined Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the 2023-24 season.

“The Tunisia international will ply his trade in La Liga after securing a switch to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

“He will hope to help Quique Sanchez Flores’s men move up from 17th in the table, as they currently sit only one place above the relegation zone.

“Former Red Adnan Januzaj is also on the club’s books.”

On Sunday, Fabrizio Romano claimed a buy option worth around £17.2million was to be inserted into the deal.


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

He spent last season on loan in the Championship with Birmingham City – making 41 appearances in all competitions.

Hannibal could now make his Sevilla debut as soon as next weekend when they take on surprise LaLiga leaders Girona.
