Moyes: Must resolve Januzaj’s contract dispute quickly

Manchester United risk losing highly-rated youngster Adnan Januzaj to fierce rivals Manchester City due to an ongoing contract dispute, according to the Daily Mail.

Januzaj is regarded as one of the hottest prospects to come through the United youth ranks in recent years and he’s widely tipped to have a bright career ahead of him.

However, his future at Old Trafford is in serious doubt with the 18-year-old at odds with the champions over a new contract. The teenagers current deal expires at the end of this season and despite extensive negotiations over the last six months, the youngster has so far refused any offers of a new deal with an agreement over an extension is yet to found.

The Daily Mail claim this impasse has alerted several clubs with Man City thought to be heading the queue should the talented midfielder decide his future lies elsewhere.

Januzaj showcased his ability with a fine second half performance against Crystal Palace on Saturday and David Moyes is under increasing pressure to hand the youngster more first team action in order to try and secure his long-term future.

The Mail suggest the players representatives are not only looking for personal terms that reflect the players ability and potential but they also want assurances that Januzaj will be given more first team opportunities in the near future.

Moyes said on Saturday that he was confident the Belgian starlet would sign a new five-year deal soon, but speculation will continue the longer this contract dispute goes on and Januzaj’s future will remain in doubt until he puts pen to paper.

    im worried by such news, my confidence is slipping slighty. we failed to keep players like pogba in da team. these young players need to play first team football to improve and click with the team but with a strike force like van Persie, Rooney, Javier(who is a master goal poacher in da making and also requires game time.) and Welbeck. is der really space for him unless there is a toss up between welbeck nd Januzaj. but it is only fair Januzaj gets a fair chance like welbeck and many others got. i say let him play we may see a change in the order of our strikers.
