Manchester United have reportedly agreed a €12million (£10.8m) deal to sign Serbian winger Filip Stevanovic.

According to reports from Outlet Republika in his homeland, Stevanovic is set to join the Red Devils.

But the 17-year-old will remain with his current club, Partizan Belgrade, for another year on loan before linking up with the Premier League side.

Partizan boss Savo Milosevic recently claimed Stevanovic would be worth more than €20m in the future as his talent comes to the fore.

However, they have opted to cash-in now with the teenage prospect keen to take his big chance to head to one of the world’s top clubs.

Stevanovic twice featured as a late substitute against Manchester United in the Europa League group stages this season.

He has scored nine goals and three assists in 35 appearances this campaign and follows in the footsteps of Zoran Tosic, who made the same move from Partizan to Old Trafford in 2009.

Tosic flattered to deceive despite his potential at Old Trafford but the club will hope Stevanovic can make much more of a success out of his move.

Whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still chasing Jadon Sancho and looking to strengthen his first-team squad, several youngsters have already arrived at the club.

Goalkeeper Radek Vitek and Sunderland duo Logan Pye and Joe Hugill have already linked up with the Under-18s squad.

Isak Hansen-Aaroen is set to complete his move from Tromso next week when he turns 16, whilst Marc Jurado and Alvaro Fernandez are also expected to follow suit from Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
