Manchester United's 'next Ronaldo' will keep working

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have been given a boost by recent comments by Adnan Januzaj claiming he is determined to work as hard as possible to get a regular place in the first team, which come after reports suggesting the future of a player dubbed the 'next Cristiano Ronaldo' is in doubt.

Juventus had reportedly made it known to the 18-year-old's representatives that they were interested in recruiting him as talks over a new deal at Old Trafford continue to stall.

Manchester United officials will be wary about these reports as they have already seen one of their most promising youngsters poached by the Serie A champions in the form of Paul Pogba.

However, David Moyes' fear will have been allayed somewhat by Januzaj's latest interview, where he revealed he was happy with the progress he was making at Old Trafford and was ready to keep on working hard to establish himself.

"I'm really enjoying myself. I played quite a few games in the reserves last season and I thought I did well, and from there I had the chance to go on tour in the summer," he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"It was a good opportunity for me to show what I could do for the team.

"I’d like to stay in the squad. I want to play as many games as I can and become the best player I can possibly be.

"But I know that I need to keep working hard every day to achieve that."

The Belgium born attacker made his Premier League debut in the recent win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford and is expected to play a more substantial part in the Capital One Cup clash with rivals Liverpool on Wednesday evening.
