Manchester United prepare unprecedented contract for Januzaj

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United are reportedly preparing to offer Adnan Januzaj an unprecedented contract for someone of his age and experience in order to keep the young midfielder from the clutches of some of Europe's most prominent clubs.

Januzaj scored a match-winning double against Sunderland on Saturday - his first Premier League start - and the 18-year-old is regarded as one of the most accomplished youngsters to graduate from the Manchester United academy for a number of years.

According to, Manchester United remain fearful Januzaj could be offered to offer clubs as his current deal edges towards expiration, and the Premier League champions are ready to present the player with a lucrative salary package.

Manchester United remain relatively scarred by the episode that saw Paul Pogba leave for Juventus last year, and are prepared to break their previously strict parameters with regards to wages in order to avoid a repeat with Januzaj.

The parents of Januzaj have already been approached by Manchester United for informal talks and the club remain hopeful they can convince those involved that Old Trafford is the right place for the teenager to continue his career.

There are, however, other clubs monitoring the situation of Januzaj, with the player's agent confirming that there is interest from elsewhere.
