Adnan Januzaj’s agent has revealed today that moments before he signed a new contract with United, PSG came in with an “astonishing offer”, but the player didn’t use this to get more money out of his club, and signed the contract regardless.
“We could have waited a little longer and seen how much United wanted him to stay and how much other teams were interested in him,” said Dirk De Vriese. “All big clubs were knocking on the door, especially PSG. Five minutes before we signed a new deal, an advisor of their Qatari chairman called me with an astonishing offer. Because Adnan was going to be a free agent at the end of the season, they were ready to offer him anything he wanted, wages and signing on fee. But money has never been a deciding factor in his choices. It wasn’t important when he chose to join Manchester United. He could have signed a better deal at Anderlecht.”
