Man Utd to sign Serbia keeper Milinkovic

Retiring Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has backed his former boss Louis Van Gaal to be the next Manchester United manager.

Manchester United will sign Serbian Under-17 international goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic, after reaching an agreement with his club FK Vojvodina.

Milinkovic, 17, will return to Vojvodina on loan next season but will hope to fight for a first-team place with David de Gea in the coming years.

The club revealed the details of the deal on their official website in a statement which read: "Manchester United is pleased to announce it has reached agreement with FK Vojvodina for the transfer of Serbian Under-17 international goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic. Both clubs have agreed that the player will remain with FK Vojvodina next season.

"If Milinkovic goes on to play for United's first team, he will follow in the footsteps of two fellow Serbians - departing captain Nemanja Vidic (300 appearances from 2006 to 2014) and winger Zoran Tosic (5 appearances from 2009 to 2010).

"Milinkovic, who turned 17 on 20 February, made six appearances for Serbia in the qualifying phase for the UEFA Under-17 Championship, keeping three clean sheets. His country marginally missed out on a place in the finals tournament currently being held in Malta, after finishing above Republic of Ireland and Georgia but behind Germany on goal difference in an elite-round group."
