With his contract expiring soon, Moyes has acted fast to lock down his prodigious talent for the Red Devils.
18-year-old Adnan Januzaj has been handed a new five-year contract at Manchester United.
The Daily Mail report that the young midfielder’s contract was set to expire at the end of this season, and with some of Europe’s biggest teams circling – including Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona – fans should be delighted that one of the club’s best youth prospects has opted to stay at Old Trafford.
Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was a big believer in Januzaj, and even picked him as a substitute for his final ever match in charge against West Brom earlier in May.
Ferguson said: “Adnan is a beautifully balanced player. He’s only 18 and still to grow into his frame. But he has good balance, good acceleration and he’s a very good technical player.”
David Moyes has clearly also seen something special within the attacking midfielder, opting to play him in his first ever competitive game in charge – United’s 2-0 Community Shield win over Wigan Athletic.
As talented as he is, Moyes is believed to be looking for a suitable loan club for Januzaj to spend this season at in order to gain more valuable match experience.
