Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick is eager to integrate Hannibal Mejbri into the senior squad.
The Manchester Evening News says the Tunisia international had the opportunity to take a holiday between the Arab Cup and the AFCON, but he chose to return to Manchester in order to train with the senior squad and catch the eye of Rangnick.
Mejbri will still make regular appearances for the club at U23s level but could also be considered for senior call-ups if he manages to impress the interim manager.
Mejbri received fresh interest in moving to the Championship on loan this month, but it did not suit the club or player for him to pursue any of the enquiries, with the focus on his international involvement.
Club sources have spoken highly of the youngster’s growing maturity in recent months and the manner in which he deals with rough treatment from many opposition players at youth level.
