Januzaj grabbed the headlines two weeks, scoring twice on his first start for the club as United came from behind to beat Sundeland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light, while the teenager was immediately linked with a move away from Old Trafford, as Europe’s top clubs began to showed their interest.
The Belgium-born teenager, who is still to choose who will represent at international level, has been locked in a transfer tussle with United since April, with David Moyes aware that the club can not afford to lose another fantastic talent, having already parted ways with Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison.
However, in an interview with Kosovo’s KTV, Januzaj revealed he sees Old Trafford as the perfect environment for his long term future.
“I am happy at Manchester United and I want to commit myself 100% in every game to do my best. I want to help Manchester United win the Premier League and become the best player in the world,” said Januzaj, who was reportedly offered a staggering – for an 18-year-old lad, that is – £50,000-a-week contract by Manchester United last week.
The 18-year-old could qualify to play for England in three-year time on residency grounds and the FA have shown an interest in the midfielder, despite Jack Wilshere’s claims that only English players should be allowed to play for England, but Januzaj is still to decide which country he’ll play for.
“It is my dad who decides which national team I will play for so I will listen to him,” said Januzaj.
It’s safe to say that as long as he commits his future to the club, United fans won’t care one jot about which country he decides to represent in international football.
