Man Utd ‘complete transfer of Stevanovic from Partizan’

first_img Loading… Manchester United have signed Filip Stevanovic from Partizan Belgrade for £10.9million, according to reports. The 17-year-old midfielder performed well against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the Europa League earlier this season. The Wideman came off the bench on both of United’s group L clashes with the Serbian side in October and November last year. And the Red Devils were impressed and have signed him permanently, according to the Serbian Telegraph. The report claims Stevanovic will stay with Partizan on loan next season but will be a Man Utd player. Partizan wanted nearer £18m for their young star earlier in the season but are said to have accepted the lower amount because of the financial impact of coronavirus.Advertisement Stevanović will follow in the footsteps of Zoran Tošić – who moved from Partizan to Old Trafford in 2009 but stayed for only one season. read also:Van Persie: ‘Conte gave Inter structure’ United face Sevilla in the Europa League semi-final tomorrow night.
