The official website has today confirmed that Adnan Januzaj has signed a new five year deal at Manchester United.
“It’s a great thrill to be able to sign for Manchester United,” he said. “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.”
His father confirmed that a number of top European clubs had enquired about his availability but that Januzaj was keen to stay where he was.
David Moyes is obviously delighted that the youngster has signed a new deal at United.
“I’m delighted that Adnan has committed his future to United,” he said. “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.”
