The summer transfer window is now well under way and managers are working hard to strengthen their squads ahead of next season, so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Vanja Milinkovic completes his move to Manchester United.
Manchester United have completed the signing of Serbian youngster Vanja Milinkovic from FK Vojvodina for an undisclosed fee.
The Red Devils announced back in May that they had agreed a deal for the highly-rated goalkeeper but the finer details of the move were still to be resolved.
Those formalities have now been completed as the club have announced on ManUtd.com that Milinkovic has sealed his move to Old Trafford in a deal that will see him remain on loan at FK Vojvodina for the forthcoming season before linking up with his new club next summer.
A press conference has been held over in Serbia where Milinkovic posed in front of a Man Utd backdrop, and FK Vojvodina president Zoran Scepanovic confirmed to the reporters that negotiations were concluded on Monday and praised United for the way they conducted the transfer negotiations.
“After lengthy talks that have taken place over the past month, we have finally completed negotiations on Monday and we can officially inform the public that our young and promising goalkeeper has joined Manchester United,”
“He will remain in Vojvodina for the next year, where he will be under the supervision of our experts and coaches from the English football giants, while continuing to train and perform in the jersey of his home club.”
“This is an opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the realisation of this transfer. Can I point out Manchester United’s very correct attitude.” Scepanovic is quoted as saying by ManUtd.com
Milinkovic is still just 17 but has already represented the Serbian Under-19 side and is tipped for a bright future after impressing for his home town club. Standing at 6ft 7in, the keeper is certainly an imposing figure and I’m sure he’ll be one to keep a close eye on once he starts his career at United next year.
