Manchester United have officially announced the capture of under-17 goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic from Serbian side FK Vojvodina for an undisclosed fee.
However, the young Serbain shot stopper will remain with FK Vojvodina on loan for the whole of the 2014/15 season.
"Manchester United is pleased to announce it has reached an 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," read an announcement in the Red Devils official website.
The Red Devils are hoping that Milinkovic will prove to be a future fist-teamer and possibly provide competition to David De Gea when he joins Manchester United in the 2015/16 season.
Milinkovic, who will be hoping to please the soon-to-be boss Louis Van Gaal, will be United's third Serbian player after Nemanja Vidic and Zoran Tosic.
The youngster has made six appearances for his country during the qualifying stages of the UEFA Under-17 Championship
Meanwhile, former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler feels that Van Gaal is too old for Manchester United despite the Dutchman's vast experience as a football manager.
The 62-year-old Dutchman, who is set to be unveiled as the new Manchester United manager very soon, arrives at a very turbulent time at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils finishing seventh in the Premier League this season.
And Fowler, who feels the job should have gone to Ryan Giggs, is adamant Van Gaal will not be able to handle the pressure despite the Dutchman winning league titles with clubs including Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
"I don't know if Louis van Gaal is the right man for Man United," said Fowler. "He's had his time. It might sound silly but he's too old. You can't argue with his credentials and what he has achieved but they should have gone for a young, vibrant manager.
"They should have just given the job to Ryan. It's one of the biggest jobs in football but Giggs knows the club, he knows what's expected and everything about the club.
"I'm not saying that as a Liverpool fan who thinks, 'let's get the young manager in and hope that he fails'. I want young British managers to do very well because it's good for British football as a whole. You don't have the career he's had at Manchester United if you're a bit of a wimp. He knows what he's doing and they should have gone down that route."
