Man United confirm permanent sale of young forward, Mateo Mejia

Man United have confirmed that Mateo Mejia has left the club on a permanent deal, heading to Sevilla in Spain.

Manchester United are certainly heading in a different direction under Erik ten Hag, with the manager displaying a real ruthless streak during this January transfer window.

With fewer games to play, footballers are being moved on. Jadon Sancho is no longer here. Nor are Donny van de Beek and Alvaro Fernandez. Facundo Pellistri and Anthony Martial may well follow.

This morning, United have confirmed the exit of another player, in the form of 20-year-old attacker, Mateo Mejia. He ends a four-and-a-half-year stay with the Reds, heading to Spanish side, Sevilla.

The attacker, who joined the club in 2019, has been a prominent figure at academy level. Mejia also made one senior appearance for United during the most recent pre-season, coming off the subs bench against Wrexham.

Much like many of the younger players, there was a real opening for them to break into the squad due to the massive injuries being suffered. Those guys are now realising that once players return, it may be nigh-on impossible to force their way into Ten Hag’s plans in the long run. Hence, they’re all leaving.

This sale will likely fetch in a minimal transfer fee for the Reds, though for Mejia, a move back to Andalusia gives him a genuine opportunity to prove his worth and show that he deserves to start games with regularity. He’ll also be joining a friendly face upon his return to his hometown, as Hannibal also made the move to Sevilla not too long ago.

Who knows, Mejia is the sort of player we may well see back at the club in future, assuming there is some sort of buy-back clause included in this transfer.

Best of luck, Mateo!
