Manchester United have finalised a deal for an extremely tall, but extremely talented young goalkeeper…
The Red Devils have confirmed via the club’s official website that they’ve completed the transfer of Vanja Milinkovic from Serbian side FK Vojvodina.
Milinkovic stands at 6 ft. 7″ and is a goalkeeper, having already represented the national Serbian Under-19 side on numerous occasions.
“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 Zoran Scepanovic, the president of the little known Serbian minnows.
The teenage prodigy will remain in his homeland for the 2014/15 campaign, before heading to England to begin his development at Old Trafford next summer.
“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,” Scepanovic continued.
“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.”
Few outside of Serbia have seen much of the giant goalkeeper in action, but he’s rated highly due to his enormous stature, commanding presence, and quick reflexes.
Whether he’ll ever be able to eventually usurp David De Gea, himself only 23, from the United no.1 jersey is uncertain, but fans will be keeping an ear out for Milinkovic’s progress next with the knowledge that he’ll become a Red Devil next summer.
