Playmaker is also being targeted by both Juve and Barca.
Premier League champions Manchester United are preparing a new bumper deal for exciting young wide man Adnan Januzaj in order to keep the starlet at Old Trafford beyond the end of this season, according to reports in the Star on Sunday.
The Belgium-born winger’s current contract with the Red Devils only runs until June 30 2014 and as a result, the top-flight giants are now understood to be desperate for Januzaj to put pen to paper on a new deal so as to ward off interest in the player from a range of big-name clubs from across the Continent.
The likes of Serie A champions Juventus and La Liga title holders FC Barcelona have been linked with a move for Januzaj of late, with both European heavyweights said to be hoping to land the 18-year-old on a free contract next summer.
However, United are believed to be set to offer their player a new deal that will see Januzaj’s current weekly wage packet rise from just £2,500 to a whopping £15,000, while the contract will also include appearance bonuses worth £1,200 per match and win bonuses valued at £6,000 per game too.
But the north-west club are reportedly refusing to pay Januzaj the £100,000 signing-on fee that his representatives have also demanded.
