thumbnail Hello,

Teammate says Serbian is keen to leave Old Trafford…

FC Koeln striker Milivoje Novakovic has claimed Manchester United winger Zoran Tosic is keen on a permanent move to Germany.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at the German outfit to gain first-team experience but now looks likely to join them on a permanent basis.

Tosic, who is set to feature for Serbia at the World Cup, has failed to break into the first team at Old Trafford since joining the Red Devils 18 months ago and Novakovic says he wants to rejoin FC Koeln in the summer.

Novakovic told the Express: “Zoran has called me. He told Manchester that he wants only to Cologne. He feels well, therefore, there may be another chance.

"During the World Cup he will probably not play from the start but I do keep my fingers crossed and hope he comes back to FC!”

Tosic has made just five appearances since moving to Old Trafford from Partizan Belgrade in 2009 and is yet to start a game for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
