Rabotnichki today confirmed the future transfer stating that they have agreed to terms with Monza with the player staying at the Debar Maalo club for the reminder of the season.
“We are proud to announce that one of the most talented Macedonian footballers, Luka Stankovski, will continue his career, from June, with Italian side Monza. The two clubs agreed the details of the transfer which should be realized in the summer transfer window. I can say that there were many offers for Luka, and we came to a common solution after consulting with the player and his parents which was that Monza was going to be his next club where he will continue to develop and thrive” – said chairman Dragan Popovski for the club’s official web site.
Rabotnichki for years is the top seller of young players in Macedonia. The likes of Elif Elmas (Fenerbahçe), Stole Dimitrievski (Udinese), Gjoko Zajkov (Rennes), Daniel Avramovski (Crvena zvezda) and most recently David Toshevski (Rostov).
“We are happy that Rabotnichki successfully continues its strategy of realizing transfers of young and talented players abroad. We are also especially proud that during a very tough period with a global pandemic involving the coronavirus, Rabotnichki was able to finale two transfers, David Toshevski to Rostov and Luka Stankovski to Monza”, added Popovski.
The amount that Monza will pay Rabotnichki for Stankovski isn’t revealed. Monza, from the town with the same name situated in Lombardy, is currently competing in Serie B where they are fighting for promotion to the Seria A. Last season they were in the third tier but owned by former Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi they are very ambitious.
Luka is son of former trequartista Goran Stankovski who in 1.MFL mostly played for Sloga Jugomagnat, but also for Rabotnichki where he works today as sports director. He has an older brother Mario, also player of Rabotnichki.
