According to the Mirror, Aleksandar Mitrovic is now ‘adamant’ that there’s already an agreement for him to join Fulham this summer – despite Newcastle being yet to receive an acceptable offer for the striker.
The story suggests that the Serbian could be on a ‘collision course’ with Newcastle as a result, with him feeling a move to Fulham should have been completed by now – even though the Cottagers are yet to actually match our £20m plus asking-price.
Here’s a snippet from the Mirror’s latest update on the striker’s situation:
“Aleksandar Mitrovic is on a collision course with Newcastle United.
“The Serbian striker is adamant that a deal is struck with Fulham – only the Cottagers have not yet met Rafa Benitez’s valuation.
“Newcastle wanted £20m for the striker but so far that figure has not been met.
“Mitrovic has made it clear he wants to leave St James’s Park – but at present the two parties are stuck in limbo until the World Cup is over and the picture becomes clearer.”
After scoring 12 goals in 17 games for Fulham, it’s clear that Slavisa Jokanovic would like to see him back at Craven Cottage this summer.
He’s not the only one according to Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones, who claims that Mitrovic has already made his mind up, telling Newcastle that he wants to leave – being intent on securing a permanent move to West London this summer.
I'm being told that Mitrovic has made it clear to Newcastle he wants to leave – and Fulham is the only club he wants to join

We shall see what happens, but, if no ones pays our asking price, this one could be set to get a little messy.
Let’s hope it doesn’t come t that – especially when his sale may be vital when it comes to Rafa’s plans to bring in a new striker of his choice.
