Report: PSG want Januzaj for £40m and £100k per week - why he's not going anywhere

PSG

Paris Saint Germain refuse to take no for an answer from Manchester United and are prepared to go big for Adnan Januzaj.

One for the transfer bin.

Exciting Manchester United phenom Adnan Januzaj, 19, a dribbling, chance creating, assist-providing, Nando's frequenting attack-minded midfielder… a player whom David Moyes is likely building his own Stretford project around, is not going anywhere.

The versatile midfielder, who has been deployed on the left side of attack, in the hole behind the striker, on the right and even on the flanks of midfield, was the subject of a £15m bid from Paris Saint Germain during the January transfer market and, unperturbed by their rejection, will - speculate the Daily Star - return in the summer with an exorbitant £40m sum for United and a £100,000 per week offer for the player.

While the financial packages on offer are handsome for both United and Januzaj, they would likely be rejected in an instant.

United do not need the sale in order to fund any summer kitty for Moyes (who has spent just £37.1m of a reported £200m set aside for the squad rebuilding) and, learning under the wing of Juan Mata, gifted teenager Januzaj has a mentor who has won the highest of prizes - the Champions League with Chelsea and the World Cup with Spain.

For the first half of the season, Januzaj was carrying a midfield containing players with ages approaching their 30s, was one of the few players generating Old Trafford excitement and will, if he continues at his current rate of development, be largely responsible for any renaissance experienced at M16.

While detractors may point to the money on offer in Paris and the 'fall from grace' at United, to be able to return the club to it's glory days for a side no doubt reserving the legendary number seven shirt for him is surely enough motivation to remain where he is.
