Manchester United sign 17-year-old Serb keeper Vanja Milinkovic

In their first transfer since the sacking of David Moyes, Manchester United announced on Saturday they had agreed to a deal with FK Vojvodina for the young goalkeeper.

Managerless Manchester United have agreed a deal with FK Vojvodina to sign Serbia youth goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic, the English Premier League club said on Saturday.

The 17-year-old will stay with the Serbian side next season before moving to Old Trafford to provide competition for first choice No 1 David de Gea.

Milinkovic’s transfer is the first by the 20-times English champions since they sacked manager David Moyes, who replaced legendary predecessor Alex Ferguson, in April after a disappointing first campaign.

Dutch coach Louis van Gaal is widely expected to be announced as the new head coach of United, who finished seventh in the league last term.
