Adnan Januzaj has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old left winger, who scored two key goals for the Red Devils against Sunderland recently, attracted interest from several clubs around Europe including Manchester City and Juventus. The gifted footballer has decided to shrug off the interest from other clubs, and commit his future to United.

David Moyes said:

“I’m delighted that Adnan has committed his future to United. He is an outstanding talent and has impressed me consistently since I came to United in July. His balance, poise and ability to beat players is truly exceptional for a boy of his age. It’s great that he recognises that this club, with its tradition for developing young players and giving them a chance on the biggest stage, is the best place for him to be.”

Adnan Januzaj said:

“It’s a great thrill to be able to sign for Manchester United. Since arriving here I have always felt like this was the right club for me. This season has been great for me – going on the pre season tour, making my debut in the Community Shield win at Wembley and then breaking into the team at Sunderland – it’s like a dream. I want to work hard now and establish myself as a Manchester United player.”

While the contract extension is excellent news for Manchester United, the question still remains regarding Januzaj’s international future and which country he’ll decide to play with. He and his father seem interested in having Januzaj play for Belgium. However, national team coach Marc Wilmots has fallen out with Januzaj’s father.

    Based United’s standards an assist should be worth another year on his contract
