According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester City are close to sealing a deal for Manchester United target Filip Stevanovic from Partizan Belgrade.

The Red Devils were believed to be close to signing the Serbian winger back in August, but the deal is said to have collapsed.

M.E.N claim Manchester City will pay around £6million for the teenager, but the 18-year-old won’t move straight into City’s first-team squad.

This season he has featured ten times in the Serbian top flight and is a regular in the starting XI.
