Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj hopes to sign a new contract after impressing on the club's pre-season tour.

The 18-year-old, who was voted United's Young Player of the Year last term, has been one of the Red Devils' standout performers on their tour of the Far East and Australia.

Subsequently, he has set his sights on cementing a first-team place and signing a new contract.

"I don't decide what happens with my contract," Januzaj told the Mirror. "I've got people behind me who do this for me.

"Manchester United are a big club, I love it here and I feel good, so I hope to stay.

"My dad does everything for me [off the pitch]. He just told me to work hard on the pitch, which is what I try to do."

The Belgian winger has also revealed that he hopes to break into the first team this season, rather than go out on loan to another club.

"My target for the season is to try and get some games for the first team," he told Sky Sports. "I have not spoken to the manager about it yet but I would prefer to do that rather than go out on loan.

"That is what I came here for. Everyone wants to play for Manchester United."

Januzaj signed for Manchester United in March 2011 from Belgian club Anderlecht for a reported fee of £297,000.

Although he has not yet featured in a competitive first-team match for the Red Devils, he was named on the bench in Sir Alex Ferguson's final match against West Bromwich Albion in May, which finished 5-5.
