Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj has played down speculation he will leave the Red Devils in the summer by admitting he is happy at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old, whose current deal runs out in the summer, is reportedly close to agreeing a new contract to stay at the Premier League champions.

Januzaj has been linked with moves to the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City, however it now seems like the teenager will commit his long-term future to United.

The Belgian starlet, who scored a brace in United's Premier League game against Sunderland just before the international, told Kosovo television station KTV: "From the beginning I wanted to play at United and now I’ve got the chance.

"I work hard in training, the manager gave me an opportunity and I managed to score the two goals against Sunderland – I was really happy with both strikes.

"I am a United player and will give everything for United.

"I want to give the maximum for the team and become the best player in the world."

The Metro suggests Januzaj is close to agreeing a new four-year deal despite his father recently refuting claims his son was about to sign a new contract.

United boss David Moyes is likely to include Januzaj in his starting line-up for his side's weekend match against fourth-placed Southampton.
