Adnan Januzaj interests European rivals
Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj's agent has revealed interest from clubs around Europe as talks over a new deal at Old Trafford remain ongoing.
Januzaj, 18, had made a promising start to his senior career at United this season, scoring on his debut in the 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield and has since made three more appearances.
Negotiations over a new contract for the Belgian stalled over the summer following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement. However, despite these talks recommencing under new boss David Moyes, agent Dirk De Vriese has hinted that his client staying at the Premier League champions may not be a certainty.
"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," De Vriese told Voetbal Niews in quotes reported by the Daily Mail.
"The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson meant that there was a break in the negotiations. We are back working on the calls and will see how it goes.
"Adnan’s family have given me the permission to communicate. As it is only me involved, there can be no misunderstandings in the media."
While De Vriese would not specify which clubs were interested, the Daily Mail reports that European champions Bayern Munich and United's cross-town rivals Manchester City are both monitoring the player, as are Barcelona and Juventus.
United are reported to be confident on a deal running until 2018 to be signed as they look to avoid a repeat of the situation which saw Paul Pogba leave the club and join Juventus in 2012.
