Januzaj set for new contract

Manchester United reserve player Adnan Januzaj is expected to sign a new contract with the club, according to his agent.

Juventus and Barcelona are said to be interested in the highly-rated youngster but Januzaj's agent Dirk Devriese says he is likely to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

Devriese said: "We know Adnan is on the list of many clubs. But, my player was voted reserve team player of the year and was one of the star players on a few big youth tournaments.

"It's no surprise other teams are interested in him. Sir Alex Ferguson has told Adnan a few weeks ago that he can play in three positions in the midfield. They have worked hard on his weak points.

"We'll talk about a new contract in a month - his one is expiring in 2014. The retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson has delayed the negotiations, but if everything goes well, Adnan will stay a few years longer at Old Trafford.

"The club rewarded him with a squad number and he'll be part of the first squad next season."
