Adnan Januzaj becomes highest paid youngster in Manchester United history?

Adnan Januzaj is reportedly the highest paid youngster in Manchester United history after signing a new deal on Saturday morning.

Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj has become the highest paid youngster in the club's history after signing a new deal on Saturday morning.

The Belgium-born 18-year-old has attracted interest from all over Europe after bursting onto the scene this season, but he has now ended speculation over his future.

According to The Mirror, Januzaj's deal will put his earnings way above those of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney when they first joined United.

He has signed a five-year contract worth a basic £60,000-a-week, but will also be paid a £5m signing bonus that will come in weekly installments of £20,000 for the duration of the deal.

Januzaj started as United drew 1-1 with Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
