The agent of Manchester United forward Adnan Januzaj has confirmed to Foot Mercato that Paris St Germain have expressed an interest in his client during the January transfer window.
The Daily Mail are among those to have suggested that the reigning French champions made a move for the Belgium international last summer, only to see their advances rebuffed.
Januzaj’s representative has now confirmed that interest has been rekindled.
He claims contact has been made with those at Old Trafford, with the Ligue 1 giants eager to bolster their creative options in the playmaking department.
PSG have, however, been informed by United that they have no intention of parting with the 19-year-old, on a loan deal or permanent basis.
Dirk De Vriese told Foot Mercato: “Yes, PSG have shown themselves to be interested this winter. They directly contacted Manchester United for information.
“Louis van Gaal announced that he [Januzaj] cannot leave this winter - not as a permanent transfer nor as a loan. The coach considered him to be an important player for the squad. He is counting on everyone. It seems like a definitive decision, I don’t think that it can change.”

Januzaj has been restricted to just 435 minutes of Premier League action this season.
Van Gaal has favoured others in his attacking unit, with a 3-5-2 system offering few opportunities for wingers.
It is the lack of competitive outings that has sparked talk of a move elsewhere, possibly on loan until the end of the campaign.
United are understandably reluctant, though, to see their options depleted in an important area of the field, with Januzaj still capable of making an impact off the bench or from the start as games, injuries and suspensions stack up.
