Mitrovic 'cost himself big money move to MAN UTD as club shelve plans to sign him' after Old Trafford red card shame | The Sun
ALEKSANDAR MITROVIC has reportedly cost himself a big-money move to Manchester United.
That’s after being charged by the FA for shoving a referee while playing the Red Devils.
Mitrovic, 28, lost his head in Fulham’s 3-1 FA Cup defeat to United at Old Trafford earlier this month.
The Serbian reacted furiously when teammate Willian was sent off for a penalty handball.
Mitrovic was shown a straight red card for shoving Chris Kavanagh before aggressively shouting in his face.
And the striker now faces a 10-match ban after being pulled up by FA chiefs.

However, Mitrovic’s implosion could cost him a whole lot more.
The Daily Star claims he was being lined up by Man United for a big-money move this summer.
Erik ten Hag had been left impressed by Mitrovic’s impressive haul of 11 strikes – not to mention last season’s record-breaking 43 goals in the Championship.
And Mitro was seen as an alternative to loanee Wout Weghorst, who could return to Burnley this summer.

But Ten Hag and fellow United transfer gurus have now struck Mitrovic off their list after his total lack of discipline on the field.
It’s reckoned Chelsea, Tottenham and Barcelona were also keeping tabs on the hitman.
And they too may now look elsewhere as Mitrovic prepares to serve a lengthy ban.
The 80-cap Serbia international has been at Fulham since 2018 following an initial loan move from Newcastle.
Mitrovic has 94 goals in 169 games for the Cottagers and has twice been crowned Club Player of the Year.
