Manchester United have completed a deal to bring FK Vojvodina goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic to Old Trafford.
The 17-year-old, who already stands at an impressive 6ft 7in already, will remain with FK Vojvodina for the upcoming season and club president Zoran Scepanovic has praised United’s attitude towards the deal.
“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,” said Scepanovic.
“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.”
United first announced a deal for Milinkovic back in May but it has taken this long for transfer to be completed. However, the youngster is now officially a United player and in the future he could well become a ready made replacement for David de Gea.
