Manchester United keen to tie down Adnan Januzaj

David Moyes has reiterated his desire to get teenage sensation Adnan Januzaj tied down to a new deal at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old has impressed in the opening games of the season, making several substitute appearances in the league as well as starring during United's pre-season tour of Asia.

However, Januzaj is currently running in to the final season of his deal at Manchester United - a fact that has seen arch-rivals Manchester City linked with a move.

Serie A giants Juventus have also been linked with a move when his contract expires at the end of the season, but Moyes says he thinks a lot of the Belgian starlet and is keen to get a contract signed sooner rather than later.

Moyes is also confident that there will be no problem in the contract negotiations.

He told the Daily Mirror: “He’s a Manchester United player and I’m sure he will be.

“We think this is the best place for producing and giving young players an opportunity. It’s part of my remit to promote young players and Adnan has been promoted already.

“The next part is to become a regular first team player. He’s keen to stay but he has some ­influences around him.”

The news will be of relief to United fans following interest from their local rivals Manchester City.

Carlos Tevez was the last player to make the switch from Old Trafford to the Etihad stadium in a move that saw his hero status at United dissipate immediately.

If Manuel Pellegrini manages to take United's hottest prospect away from the red side of Manchester, it would put more pressure on new manager David Moyes.
