Manchester United have warned Real Madrid that starlet Adnan Januzaj is not for sale at any price with the Spanish giants said to be eyeing up the possibility of making a big money offer according to the Daily Mail.
The Belgian international enjoyed a breakthrough season last time round with the Red Devils, announcing himself to the club's fans with two stunning goals against Sunderland back in October.
He made 27 league appearances in total for Manchester United last term and ended up with four goals to his name - and for that he was rewarded with a huge pay-rise and a new five-year contract.
Along with earning him a spot at the World Cup with Belgium, it seems his form has also caught the attention of Real Madrid, who according to the Daily Mail are considering making an offer for the 19-year-old.
Despite that, Manchester United have told Los Blancos not to waste their time with an offer for perhaps the most promising teenager in the Premier League.
Under David Moyes, Manchester United suffered an awful 2013/14 Premier League campaign, and the performances of Januzaj were certainly one of the few bright spots for them. Of course Moyes has since been permanently replaced by Louis van Gaal and how much of a chance he'll get to shine at Old Trafford next season remains to be seen - but he can be confident of featuring regularly given the Dutchman's habit of blooding youngsters early.
Instead of letting their best players leave, the Red Devils have spent much of their time focusing on which big-names to bring in, but frustratingly for the club's fans nothing has been confirmed as yet.
They've been linked with a host of Bayern Munich players such as Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger, as well as Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani and Southampton's Luke Shaw.
Manchester United supporters will be keen to see some activity soon, but with Van Gaal away for the next few weeks while he tries to lead the Netherlands to World Cup glory, it is unlikely that any transfers will be completed.
