Done Deal: Man United 25-year-old target sign nine-year deal with £125m release clause

According to the Spanish media, Athletic Bilbao have handed winger Inaki Williams a new nine-year contract.

Williams has spent his entire professional career with the La Liga outfit, contributing a total of 49 goals from 200 appearances in all competitions.

However, Manchester United were linked with an approach for the 25-year-old during the summer transfer window as they considered adding new attack-minded players to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

A transfer will not materialise in the near future, however, after Athletic opted to give Williams a deal which will not expire until 2028. The Spanish outfit have also included a £125m release clause as part of the agreement in a bid to fend off any admirers of the forward.

Meanwhile, highly-rated Monaco teenager Hannibal Mejbri is heading to Manchester United in a 10 million euros deal, subject to FIFA clearance.

The 16-year-old’s future has been subject to widespread speculation this summer, with Leicester and Tottenham among those understood to be after the midfielder.

But United have announced that they have “reached an agreement with Monaco for Hannibal Mejbri to join the club subject to FIFA approval”.

PA understands the deal to be worth up to 10 million euros (£9.3million), with the Ligue 1 club receiving half up front and the rest in potential add-ons.
