Manchester United officially confirm first summer signing

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have signed Serbian Under-17 international goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic, the club announced this morning.

The 17-year-old will move from FK Vojvodina but an agreement has been reached for Milinkovic to remain at his current club next season on a loan deal.

United are spoilt for goalkeeper options at the lower levels with the likes of Pierluigi Gollini, Sam Johnstone and Joel Pereira but having another in the ranks is always good for competition.

In recent years, United have brought in some fantastic talent from abroad into our academy in the likes of Paul Pogba, Adnan Januzaj, Mats Moller Daehli and many more, so hopefully Milinkovic can turn out to be just as good a signing as those other youngsters.

Luke Shaw was expected to be the first deal this summer but Milinkovic got in there first, although it is widely expected that Shaw will soon follow.
