Juventus plan swoop for Manchester United starlet

MarottaItalian Champions Juventus are planning a swoop to secure the services of Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj.

The 18-year-old Belgian has been turning in some impressive performances during Manchester United’s tour of the Far East this July.

The Daily Mail reported on  Thursday that United were keen to offer the young midfielder a new contract but according to Calciomercato.com, The Old Lady are planning a hostile move for Januzaj to lure him away from England.

Their task will not be made easy however, following Januzaj stating that he would be happy to remain with the English Champions.

“I don’t decide what happens with my contract. I’ve got people behind me who do this for me.” Said Januzaj when speaking to The Daily Mail.

“Manchester United are a big club, though.

“I love it here and I feel good so I hope to stay.”

  7. Paul says:

    Just like Pogba right….. we will see if we have room for him. Plus Man u hasnt had a midfield in a few years so they dont really need him.

  8. HFH says:

    Grandpa is not in charge anymore, so they will not make another stupid decision like the one with Pogba.

  19. terry says:

    sorry cantona you flipping idiot, its juve who are the old mans team…januzaj belongs to utd you sad git.
    I feel sorry for that old age team from italy, no class, no young, no future…italy will belong to napoli.

  20. terry says:

    lingard, cole, tunni, zaha, januzaj, pereira, keane, jones, de gea, chicha, cleverley, kagawa, rafa, fabs, welbz…the future is bright, the future is united.

    Where’s juve’s youth, lol, thats right you ain’t got any thats why your know as the OLD lady

  21. Owolabi Yusuf says:

  22. terry says:

    Conor Clancy

    you not sanction my comments but then again you won’t would you cause i stated the truth about utd and juve and some worm like you won’t lime that….

    those creeps of italy have nothing that will get adnan, he aint some money grabbing no name like the untalented pig shit, oh i mean pogba.

    adnan will stay with the 2014 champions, whilst napoli spells the end of the OLD lady for good, the fossels of juve are in for a rude awakening

  23. Steve says:

    never understand why anyone would want to play in italy – corruption is rife in their game and it won’t be long befor the old granny is serving time in the lower divions for cheating yet again

  24. barry says:

    sorry lee dillnut. that talk of not being a true red cause we not from manchester, silly statement. I have followed for 20 + years over 20+ times a season. without the money us not true reds generate utd would not be club they are today. as for

  25. barry says:

    januzaj moyes needs to keep let him grow with a few other young lads there and build a great team. as for now forget fab and get a solid midfielder to replace keane. we really need one

  26. Stu says:

    Lee get over it! I have supported United for 50 years, probably before you were in nappies! United are a world wide Club! Instead of slating people back your United comrades!

  27. Stu says:

    Lee I agree with you though we have know need for any signings! We have 3 great youngsters that set the cat amongst the pidgeons on tour! Bring on the new season ……….
