Manchester United take a look at Courtois-like 'keeper

Old Trafford 3

17-year-old Serbian goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic has been given a chance to impress at United's Aon Training Complex.

Reports in Serbia say Milinkovic-Savic will be in Manchester for five or six days from April 13th, in order to show the prestigious Manchester United goalkeeping coaches what he is made of.

Standing at a staggering 6ft 7in, he can easily be compared with Chelsea starlet Thibaut Courtois as one of the few goalkeepers in world football donning that type of height.

Although, he still wouldn't big enough to take 'tallest player in the Premier League' title from Manchester City star Costel Pantilimon, who stands just one inch bigger than the young Serbian.

According to the reports, he is a player Manchester United have kept an eye-on for a while, as they apparently watched the young star's excellent performances in the UEFA Under-17 European Championship Elite Stage. Which despite being unbeaten in all six games, they failed to progress to the final round.

It won't be easy for Manchester United to snatch his signature, due to the youngster recently signing a professional contract with Vojvodina, a top-tier Serbian domestic side.

However, he could be a name to look out for in the future, especially if Manchester United decide to sign him on in the summer.
