Bad news for Aleksandar Mitrovic as report reveals how his Fulham move could be about to collapse

Fulham will have to beat Aston Villa on Saturday and seal promotion to the Premier League if they are to sign Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer according to the London Evening Standard – who claim they’ll be unable to afford a £15m deal if they fail to go up.

The report reveals what we expected in the main, stating Fulham are desperate to sign him and that we’re willing to let him leave, however admit that any deal completely hinges on the Cottager’s promotion to the Premier League this weekend.

Here’s a snippet from the Evening Standard’s latest piece on Mitrovic’s future this afternoon:

“The 23-year-old Serbian will be allowed to leave Newcastle, but Fulham’s hopes of signing him rest on whether they beat Aston Villa in Saturday’s play-off final at Wembley.”

Talk about news that will make Fulham fans that bit more nervous ahead of Saturday’s showdown with Villa!

The game (and promotion to the top flight) is believed to be worth £170m to either side as it is, but for Fulham it will also define whether they’ll be able to sign the striker who became a fan-favourite within weeks.

With Benitez keen to offload the Serbian in a bid to bring in a proven striker of his choice, it will also be in our interests to see Fulham win on Saturday. There’ll be other clubs interested it Fulham dropped out, but I’d like to bet they’d pay more than most to sign him (provided they win at Wembley).

Let’s hope they do. His exit and a subsequent £15-20m for Rafa to spend would work for all parties as far as I’m concerned.

  1. Do not be silly. Do you think for one minute that Ashley would give Rafa the money. Mitro is a good player, better than anything we have. Sir Bobby would have put his arm round him and sort him out. He has never been booked since he went to Fulham. Man management.


  2. So how is the move about to collapse?

    It always depended on Fulham going up.

    However, what stops him going on loan again if they dont go up?
