Ralf Rangnick opens up on signing wonderkid in the forthcoming transfer window.

Hannibal has no doubt been pictured training with Manchester United’s first-team squad following his return from the Arab Cup with Tunisia.

The Young midfielder was heartbroken in the final when they lost out to Algeria but is now back at Carrington and has been working with the senior side.

United interim boss Ralf Rangnick told the club website he is well aware of Hannibal’s capabilities and looks forward to having him train with his squad more regularly.


Further international commitments at the Africa Cup of Nations mean that Rangnick will have to wait to work with Hannibal on a prolonged basis, but he is clearly a fan.

“We had 25 players in on Thursday and the only one missing was Paul Pogba. Hannibal was here training for the first time since I arrived having just come back from the Arab Cup. Unfortunately for us and him he will be missing out [with us] again in January because of the Africa Cup of Nations,” said Rangnick.

“I watched the final before his substitution and I’m fully aware that we have another good, highly-talented player coming from our youth ranks and hopefully after the Africa Cup of Nations he can regularly train and be part of our group.”

“I think since the Busby Babes this has always been part of the DNA of the club and the same was true under Sir Alex Ferguson in those 27 years.

“It’s not only about youth, but it’s also about being talented and having the right personality and mentality and if those things come together then of course I want to play as many of those young players as possible.

“We had three, four, or five of them in our squad already and for me, it’s important to develop those players.”
