Red Devils agree deal for 17-year-old Serbian stopper.

Check in to Brazil vs Mexico

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of teenage goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic.

The 17-year-old is now officially a United player, but he will remain with current club FK Vojvodina in Serbia until the summer of 2015.

Milinkovic has represented Serbia at youth level and was part of the side that narrowly missed out on a place in the UEFA Under-17 Championship in Malta.

Serbia’s youngsters finished second in an elite-round group that included Germany, the Republic of Ireland and Georgia.

Milinkovic featured in six games of Serbia’s qualifying campaign, keeping three clean sheets in the process.

When he does arrive at Old Trafford, he will face a very tough task if he harbours aspirations of breaking in the Red Devils’ first team.

United’s current number one, David de Gea, was recently named as the club’s player of the season.

If Milinkovic does go on to feature for United’s senior side, he will follow in the footsteps of countrymen Nemanja Vidic and Zoran Tosic.

Defender Vidic, who is leaving to join Inter Milan this summer, has made 300 United appearances since 2006.

Meanwhile, winger Tosic made five appearances between 2009 and 2010, when he left United for CSKA Moscow.
