Football: Man Utd Complete Signings Of Serbian Starlets

Posted on: January 2, 2009

MANCHESTER, England : Manchester United confirmed the signings of Serbian starlets Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic from Partizan Belgrade on Friday.

United revealed late last year that they had reached agreement with Partizan to sign the duo and the Premier League champions have now concluded contract negotiations.

Tosic will move to Old Trafford next week, with Ljajic staying in Belgrade for the remainder of the season.

Despite being just 21, Tosic has already made 12 appearances for Serbia and is regarded as one of the best young wingers in Europe.

At just 17, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels Serbia Under-21 midfielder Ljajic will benefit from remaining with Partizan to gain more first team experience.

It has been suggested United could end up paying around 17 million pounds for the duo, although that figure is likely to be based heavily on future success and the club have refused to comment on the size of an initial payment.
