Manchester United are signing Serbian youngster Filip Stevanović, according to claims from the player’s country today.
Outlet Republika comes up with an exclusive story saying Partizan have agreed the winger’s transfer to the Red Devils in a €12m deal.
The 17-year-old is expected to stay at the Serbian side for one more year on a loan deal, and only then will he move to the Old Trafford side.
The reports says that even though manager Savo Milosevic recently said the player will be worth over €20m in the future, Partizan thought this was a good opportunity to make cash now. As for the player, he knows these opportunities don’t show up every day.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the chance to see Stevanović closely twice, as the winger had a few minutes in both matches between Manchester United and Partizan in the Europa League group stage this season.
Republika points out that Stevanović now follows the footsteps of Zoran Tosic, who left Partizan to join Manchester United in a €7m deal back in 2009.
The teenager has nine goals and three assists in 35 appearances for the Serbian side this season.
