Attacking midfielder Mejbri19 years old on January 21, starred in Tunisia’s fugitive to Africa Cup of Nations Quarterfinals.

And he will be in United party together with fit back Paul Pogba for Championship Boro’s fourth round visit.

Rangnick told MUTV: “From now on, he will train regularly with us and be a regular member of the team.

“Honestly, I haven’t seen him as much as he does in the national team.

“I’ve seen him play in the tournament, not the Africa Cup of Nations but before that [the Arab Cup].

“I’ve seen him play in the final and, from what I’ve seen so far, I think he’s a promising talent.

“He deserves to be part of the group for the rest of the season and also part of the group for tomorrow’s (Friday) game.”

Mejbri’s cutting-edge skills in practice – including taking down more established aces – have been revealed by United insiders.

A club source told The Athletic: “He actually plays ‘p***’ against players a few years older than him.

“He will try to attack then pull it and shoot in the other direction.”

Fred fell victim to Mejbri’s dribbling in viral clips last September.

Now, the Brazilian midfielder and Co will have to get used to it more often as whizkid has been permanently integrated into the squad.
