Man Utd have ‘agreed a fee’ to sign Filip Stevanovic.

The Partizan Belgrade prospect is currently seen as one of Serbia’s top talents. Stevanovic made 35 appearances last season, 2 of them from substitute appearances against the Red Devils. During this period, the youngster managed to register 9 goals and 3 assists.

The 17-year-old is already making a name for himself in Serbia, and attracted interests from the likes of Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

However, now it seems like the Old Trafford outfit have materialised their interest. If Republika are to be believed, the Serbians have already agreed a fee of €12 million for their starlet.

The report goes on to say that the winger has already been ‘sold’ but will remain at Partizen for another season on loan.

Despite this, club president Vladimir Vuletic has refuted all claims of the young prospect being sold and insists ‘negotiations are ongoing.’ Though this does confirm the English side have been in contact.

The Belgrade based side were initially in hopes of a €20 million sale but have finally decided to cash in, with a bit of push from the player himself.

The left-winger also hinted at the move recently with a post a cheeky on Instagram, adding Old Trafford as his location with the caption consisting of mischievous emojis.

The Serbian is expected to be the Premier League giants’ first big signing of the season and will spend the next season developing at his current club. This signing may prove to be a solid backup and even replacement to Marcus Rashford in the future.
