Mitrović makes Anderlecht switch

RSC Anderlecht have signed Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrović from FK Partizan with the Belgian champions reportedly breaking their transfer record for the forward.

RSC Anderlecht have signed Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrović from FK Partizan.

The 18-year-old forward will arrive on 30 August for an undisclosed fee, though it has been reported that it is the most expensive transfer in the history of the Belgian champions, and has signed a five-year-contract at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

"Anderlecht are the biggest club from Belgium and give a lot of playing opportunities to young players," said Mitrović, who has two caps for Serbia and won the UEFA European Under-19 Championship earlier this month. "I am very happy with my move and I am certain I made the right choice for my career. Here I can become a better player."

Anderlecht begin their UEFA Champions League campaign in the group stage, the draw for which takes place in Monaco on 29 August. Partizan face FC Thun in the UEFA Europa League play-offs after they were eliminated in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League by PFC Ludogorets Razgrad.
