Manchester United are close to signing 17-year-old winger dubbed as the next Cristiano Ronaldo

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

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

The 17-year-old winger is expected to 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.

He has scored nine goals and three assists in 35 appearances this campaign and has become the youngest player to score in a UEFA competition for Partizan last August. He’s quick, skillful, can get past defenders with ease and has good crossing skills. He’s often compared to Cristiano Ronaldo in his native country.

The winger also featured against Manchester United in both the fixtures of a Europa League group stage match this season.

Whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still chasing Jadon Sancho and looking to strengthen his first-team squad, several young stars have joined the Manchester Outfit in the past weeks with Stevanovic following Hannibal Mejbri into the team.
