Could things get any worse at Manchester United as deal for wonderkid stalls?

Manchester United Adnan Januzaj

The agent of Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj has revealed contract negotiations have stalled since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, reports the Daily Mail.

Talks have stalled between both parties since September, with Januzaj reportedly wanting assurances of first team football and a wage which matches this.

The Belgian youngster is out of contract at the end of the season, and a number of top sides have already begun circling, including Juventus and arch rivals Manchester City. European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also monitoring the situation.

However it is understood that talks over a new deal have reopened, with United desperate to keep hold of one of their most exciting prospects.

Dirk De Vriese – the representative of the 18-year-old Belgian – has confirmed his client is on the verge of making a career defining decision.

“I’m not going to say which teams are interested in him, but I can tell you that there is interest from several European clubs,” De Vriese told Voetbal Niews. 

“The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson meant that there was a break in the negotiations. We are back working on the calls and will see how it goes. 

“Adnan’s family have given me the permission to communicate. As it is only me involved, there can be no misunderstandings in the media.”

Last week, manager David Moyes said: “We really think an awful lot of Adnan. He is a Manchester United player. I am sure he will stay. He is keen to stay.”
