Manchester City are hoping to tempt Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj into making the controversial move to the Etihad Stadium with the promise that they will triple his wages, according to the Metro.

The 18-year-old is rated as one of the most exciting youngsters coming through at Old Trafford at the moment, and is in talks with the club over a new contract as he looks to establish himself as a regular part of the first-team.

However, it is also thought that City are keen to land him, and may make a move for him in January with the promise of a five-year contract worth around £45,000 a week, a great deal more than he is being offered at United.

United manager David Moyes has hinted that negotiations have been progressing well, and hopes to keep hold of the talented young Belgian, though he has admitted there are external influences at work as well.

Januzaj could become the third player in recent years to make the move across Manchester, with Carlos Tevez leaving United for City in 2009, and Owen Hargreaves making the same move in 2011.

Januzaj has made just four first-team appearances for the Premier League champions, though he has been gradually involved in the team more in recent weeks.
