Zoran Tosic and Adam Ljajic signed for Manchester United a few days ago. The two Serbians both arrive from Partizan Beograd and both are said to be huge talents. And they have similar aims as well: to become stars in the red shirt.

‘At the beginning it was a dream to play somewhere like United but now it is a reality, one I am very happy with,’ Tosic told uefa.com

‘I want to become a top player at United and not waste the opportunity of being a member of the greatest football family. It is great feeling, but now I must think about working hard.

‘The presence of Nemanja Vidic will be a great help as I know him from the national team. I am full of confidence, will learn quickly and hope United can count on me very soon.’


Vidic’s help will not be available to Ljajic until next January as he stays at Partizan for the remainder of the season and for the first half of the next one. However, he’s already excited.

‘It has all happened so fast for me,’ he said. ‘I am only 17 and have had some dreams in the past but can now have one more: the United shirt.

‘However, I will spend the next year learning more at Partizan and I will be ready for Old Trafford next January.’
