Belgian-born Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has signed a new five year contract until June 2018.
Januzaj, whose man-of-the-match performance at Sunderland was capped with a match-winning brace after United went a goal down, made his first appearance as a substitute in the Community Shield this year.
United manager David Moyes was delighted that the teenager had signed, adding: “He is an outstanding talent and has impressed me consistently since I came to United in July. His balance, poise and ability to beat players is truly exceptional for a boy of his age. It’s great that he recognises that this club, with its tradition for developing young players and giving them a chance on the biggest stage, is the best place for him to be.”
Januzaj said: “It’s a great thrill to be able to sign for Manchester United. Since arriving here I have always felt like this was the right club for me. This season has been great for me – going on the pre season tour, making my debut in the Community Shield win at Wembley and then breaking into the team at Sunderland – it’s like a dream. I want to work hard now and establish myself as a Manchester United player.”
