Manchester United’s new goalkeeper and summer signing Vanja Milinkovic has had a busy week, as he visited Manchester, Carrington to meet players and staff and had taken a tour of the Theatre of Dreams, Old Trafford.
Some of you may not know much about United’s signing of Vanja Milinkovic, but we completed his contract during the summer just gone with Louis van Gaal coming in as manager. Milinkovic was then immediately loaned back to his club of FK Vojvodina.
Vanja Milinkovic is a 17-year-old Serbian goalkeeper who stands at 6ft 7, yes, that’s right, six foot 7. His dad was also a professional footballer and his brother Sergej also plays for FK Vojvodina.
Earlier last week, he visited the AoN Training Complex in which he met with all the first-team, under-21s and also Sir Alex Ferguson.
Over the weekend, Milinkovic visited Old Trafford and was quick to post his picture on social media website, Instagram, as shown below. We will be keeping a close eye on the progress of our new young goalkeeper, and look forward to him joining up with the under-21s at the end of this season.
