Januzaj apparently chose to stay at Old Trafford despite receiving a bigger offer from the Ligue 1 champions.
The agent of Adnan Januzaj has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain made “an astonishing offer” for the Manchester United winger earlier this year.
Januzaj only made his first-team debut for the Red Devils in August 2013, but he quickly made a big impact, scoring twice on his first start to secure a 2-1 win at Sunderland.
A number of impressive displays convinced United to hand him a new five-year contract, reportedly worth £50,000 per week, in October, making him the highest paid teenager in the world.
Januzaj’s previous deal had been due to expire this summer, and agent Dirk De Vriese has claimed that the 19-year-old could have secured an even bigger weekly wage had he agreed to join PSG on a free transfer at the end of the season.
De Vriese told Sport/Voetbal Magazine: “I can only say that he’s the best paid youngster in the world. He earns more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi did when they were 19. That means a lot and I’m proud of it.
“We could have waited a little longer and seen how much United wanted him to stay and how much other teams were interested in him.
“All big clubs were knocking on the door, especially PSG. Five minutes before we signed a new deal, an advisor of their Qatari chairman called me with an astonishing offer.
“Because Adnan was going to be a free agent at the end of the season, they were ready to offer him anything he wanted, wages and signing on fee.
“But money has never been a deciding factor in his choices. It wasn’t important when he chose to join Manchester United. He could have signed a better deal at Anderlecht.”
Januzaj, who recently committed his international future to Belgium, has scored four goals and provided three assists in 26 Premier League appearances.
