MANCHESTER UNITED’S Hannibal Mejbri is wanted by Besiktas on loan after they recently had a permanent deal for the midfielder rejected.
The 20-year-old who was once involved in a training ground bust-up with former teammate Alex Telles is wanted in a last-gasp transfer swoop.

Besikitas and United have recently been in negotiations after the Instanbul-base side signed centre-back Eric Bailly.
They are now looking to strengthen their ranks further by eyeing a move for midfielder Mejbri with the Turkish transfer window still open.
Mejbri spent last season in the Championship at Birmingham City, where he made 41 appearances.
The Tunisia International is in high demand but has remained at United, who have resisted offers to sign the player permanently.
And Besiktas offered a loan deal with an option to buy the player but got knocked back by the Red Devils.
Erik ten Hag has not played the youngster yet in any of United’s four Premier League games.
While Besiktas boss Senol Gunes is desperate for an attack-minded midfielder and believes Mejbri is the perfect fit.
Mejbri has been capped 26 times for the Tunisian senior side at international level.
The youngster made headlines last May as he was involved in a training ground clash with former Red Devils star Alex Telles – in the aftermath of their humiliating 4-0 defeat against Brighton.
