Much has been made recently in the media about Adnan Januzaj’s contract at Manchester United, with many other clubs around Europe interested in snapping up the young 18-year-old.
On Friday, he sat down with David Moyes and Ed Woodward to finalise his new five-year contract which is now all done, his wages and whether a signing on fee was paid has yet to be released.
Speaking with manutd.com, 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.”
Fantastic news on the new contract, now Januzaj and the club can concentrate on his football without media intrusion every-week regarding his contract.
