Zoran Tosic leaves Manchester United for CSKA Moscow

Tosic netted five times at Cologne

Serbian international Zoran Tosic has left Manchester United for CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee.

The winger arrived at United for £7m from Partizan Belgrade in January 2009.

However, he made just five first-team appearances before being loaned to Bundesliga side FC Cologne for the second half of the 2009-10 season.

The German outfit said they could not afford to keep the 23-year-old, who was an unused substitute in Serbia's 1-0 World Cup defeat to Ghana on Sunday.

Despite never scoring for United, Tosic managed five goals for Cologne in their successful battle to avoid relegation.

Tosic's move to Old Trafford 18 months ago was initially intended to be part of a £16.5 double-swoop involving then-17-year-old Partizan midfielder Adem Ljajic.

United, though, eventually decided against signing Ljajic - now at Fiorentina - citing difficulties in acquiring a work permit for the youngster as the main reason for pulling the plug on the deal.
