Bayern Munich are confident of tempting Adnan Januzaj away from Manchester United in favour of Bavaria this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The reigning Bundesliga and European champions are looking to find long-term replacements for both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery this summer as both are approaching the latter stages of their career.

Pep Guardiola knows that the Allianz Arena is the most attractive place to be for a footballer at this moment in time. As a result, he believes the club have enough pulling power to lure Januzaj away from Old Trafford.

The Bavarians will look to send out a clear message to the 19-year-old when they travel to Old Trafford tomorrow to take on Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-final.

Bayern are heavy favourites to qualify for the semi-finals ahead of David Moyes' men and a dominant victory against Januzaj's current team will go a long way to convincing him that his future lies away from the Red Devils.

Januzaj recently signed a five-year contract with Manchester United in what was a massive boost for Moyes, who has struggled since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.

But the Belgian-born winger will most-likely have to spend a season out of the Champions League if he stays at Old Trafford next season whereas Bayern would offer him a strong chance to win it at the tender age of 20.

Guardiola has a reputation for nurturing young talent and the offer to work under him will be tough for Januzaj to reject, especially when the future is so unclear at Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain have already offered Januzaj the chance to leave Old Trafford and were linked with a £40m bid earlier this year. However, the established Bayern Munich represents a much more attractive proposition for Januzaj and the German's believe they have a good chance of stealing him away from Old Trafford this summer.

If they were to lose Januzaj, it would be the second bright prospect to exit Old Trafford in two years. United fans must watch on in agony as Paul Pogba develops into one of the world's finest midfielders at Juventus.

A similar situation would be too much for fans to deal with and would no doubt hamper the team in their pursuit of re-establishing themselves as a top club.
