Manchester United are set to lose out on one of their transfer targets, as striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is expected to sign with Newcastle United.
According to the Daily Star, Newcastle will sign the Anderlecht striker to a deal very soon.
The details have yet to be disclosed though.
The Serbian international has been rated at £13m, and Man United boss Louis van Gaal was keen on bringing him to Old Trafford.
The 20-year-old shined for Anderlecht. He scored 20 goals for them in 37 Belgian Pro League appearances in the 2014-15 season.
Mitrovic is expected to officially sign with Newcastle on Friday, according to his agent, Pini Zahavi.
“The formalisation of the transfer will be made in the coming hours,” Zahavi said.
Newcastle finished the 2014-15 season in 15th place in the Premier League standings.
They may see a big boost if they are able to receive star production from the Serbian striker.
However, Mitrovic will more than likely take time to adjust to Premier League play.
