MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly planning to bring Celta Vigo’s teenage defender Stefan Bajcetic to Old Trafford.
Red Devils bigwigs are in negotiations with their Spanish counterparts for the 16-year-old, according to La Voz de Galicia via Sport Witness.
The transfer looks set to go through because both clubs are eager to tie up a deal for the hot prospect, who has been ear-marked as a star of the future.
A fee will need to be forked out, however.
Agent Javier Villaverde is demanding Celta Vigo are compensated for their role in Bajcetic’s development.
Bajcetic was promoted to the club’s youth B team at the start of the season and has made two appearances.
He appears to have picked up his talent from his his dad, former Serbian midfielder Srdan Bajcetic, who made 29 appearances for Celta Vigo between 1994 and 1997.
United have looked to Spain in recent times to strengthen their youth ranks.
Alejandro Garnacho Ferreyra, Alvaro Fernandez and Marc Jurado joined from Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively earlier this year.
