Israeli champions Maccabi Tel Aviv have signed Serbia goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic from Red Star Belgrade on a five-year contract.
“The significant investment we have made in such a young and highly-rated talent reflects our ambitions,” chief executive Martin Bain
told the club’s website on Saturday.
“There were a number of top European clubs expressing interest in Rajkovic and we are delighted to have secured his signature.” The fee was undisclosed but Serbian media reports put it at three million euros ($3.35 million). The 19-year-old won the 2014 league title with Red Star and captained Serbia to a shock Under-20 World Cup triumph in New Zealand in June.
