Talks are ongoing ahead of Mitrovic's return from holiday later this week.

The 23-year-old was given an extended break following his involvement at the World Cup with Serbia.

United manager Rafa Benitez wants to sell Mitrovic and reinvest the proceeds on a new striker, with West Bromwich Albion's Salomon Rondon one target.
