However, Mitrovic is now finalising a £20million move to Craven Cottage.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season at the club, which was promoted through the play-offs.

Mitrovic had reported back to United for pre-season training this week.

The Serbia international had been given an extended break following his involvement at the World Cup.
