AC Milan youngster joins United for 2014/15 season…
United can confirm the signing of Zan Benedicic from AC Milan on a season-long loan with the option to buy, subject to international clearance.
The 18-year-old attacking midfielder is a current Slovenian Under-21 international and at the start of the summer he was part of AC Milan’s pre-season tour of America.
The youngster’s international career has also seen him play for Slovenia’s Under-17 and Under-18s.
The midfielder is yet to make a competitive senior outing for the Italian giants but he played a major part of AC Milan’s Under-19 campaign last season, making over 30 appearances.
Benedicic is United’s sixth signing of the summer and follows Marco Silvestri, Tommaso Bianchi, Gaetano Berardi and Souleymane Doukara joining the club from the continent.
United head coach David Hockaday: “Zan is a versatile, strong and technical midfield player. He has massive potential and comes highly recommended by AC Milan.”
