David Gill, United chief executive, confirmed that the club is still in talks with Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic about a move to the European champions.

The two young Serbians – a winger and a playmaker, 21 and 17 year olds respectively – are widely expected to join United, the former in January, the latter in June. But it is far from certain.

‘We’re still in negotiations with both,’ Gill told MUTV.

‘We’ve agreed club terms, now we’re working on the player terms. They may or may not happen.

‘Apart from those, I don’t think there will be a lot of activity from us in January.

‘Perhaps the odd loan signing going out if Alex decides he wants to give some of the younger players senior experience elsewhere. But I don’t expect there’ll be much else.’


Not that we expected anything else… hopefully agreeing personal terms with a 21-year-old Serbian won’t be that difficult. I mean, he can’t expect to be paid at Ronaldo’s level, can he?
