Talks between Manchester United and Partizan for the transfer of Filip Stevanović have now been confirmed by the Serbian club.
The black and whites’ vice president Vladimir Vuletić was interviewed by Buta Sport today, and said: “The negotiations are ongoing.”
The website doesn’t say that the transfer is done, but does say Manchester United are ‘ready’ to leave him on loan at Partizan for one season, then take the teenager to Old Trafford.
Buta Sport report Stevanović will be more expensive than Strahinja Pavlović, who was sold by Serbian side in a €10m December deal with AS Monaco.
The news about Stevanović’s move to Manchester United was broken by Republika earlier today. The outlet claimed the Premier League side are paying €12m for the winger.
Whilst the first report presented the transfer as fully agreed, the second one says the player is close to Manchester United.
Stevanović scored nine goals and made three assists this season, and faced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side twice in the Europa League group stage.
