Manchester United starlet's agent confirms European interest

Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj's future has been thrown into fresh doubt after his agent admitted a number of European teams were interested in signing the teenager.

The 18-year-old, who moved to Old Trafford in March 2011 as a 16-year-old, has just one year left on his current deal with the Premier League champions.

Manchester United boss David Moyes said last week that he was confident Januzaj would commit his future to the Red Devils - despite the starlet being linked with the likes of Juventus, Manchester City and Barcelona in recent weeks.

Januzaj's agent Dirk De Vriese has since confirmed speculation linking his client with several top European clubs. 

Speaking to Sport Witness, De Vriese said: "I'm not going to say which teams are interested in him, but I can tell you that there is interest from several European clubs. 

"The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson caused a break in the negotiations. But we are back working on the talks... I have already from Adnan's family an agreement to communicate."

De Vriese also revealed that Januzaj has not yet made up his mind on whether he will represent Belgium or Albania on the international stage.

"Januzaj's father has always been clear about his international future," added De Vriese.

"He must have a starting spot somewhere and then he can look further into that area.

"There have already been many emails and faxes sent from the (national) associations to inquire about his future.

"In Albania there are even entire television shows organised to convince him to choose the Albaian national team, but he remains very calm about it himself."
