Highly-rated Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj is yet to agree a new contract with the Premier League champions, according to the player's agent.

18-year-old Januzaj has hugely impressed fans and pundits alike with his performances this season after being brought into the first-team fold by new manager David Moyes and further endeared himself to the United faithful by netting a stunning second-half brace to hand the Red Devils a morale-boosting 2-1 victory against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Such exciting form has led to concerns and speculation over the Belgian-born starlet's future, with Barcelona said to be interested in acquiring Januzaj when his current contract expires following the climax of the 2013/14 campaign.

Evidently to keep hold of their potential star, United were said to be keen to sign the former Anderlecht midfielder to a long-term deal and even registered him in their Champions League squad in an apparent attempt to stave off growing interest from elsewhere.

Despite some in the media suggesting that Januzaj may already have agreed to a new deal, Belgian journalist Jens Cuypers has since confirmed that this is not the case after talking to Dirk Devriese, the player's agent.

"Had a chat with #Januzaj's manager, Devriese. The negotiations between the player and #MUFC still going on," Cuypers tweeted on Monday afternoon.

Additionally, Cuypers claims that Devriese also confirmed that his client - who is eligible to represent a plethora of international nations - is unconcerned with his international future at present and is only focusing on securing regular football at club level.

"He also told me #Januzaj doesn't care about a national team at this time. His focus is all on #MUFC and being in the starting eleven again," Cuypers added.
