Adnan Januzaj

After an abortive early bid for the player was quickly rebuffed by Manchester United, PSG seem keen to renew their interest in the Old Trafford starlet Adnan Januzaj in the summer, and may seek to tempt David Moyes to part with his prodigious young talent with a mega-bucks offer.

It’s understood that the January offer was pitched at, what must have viewed by United as, only a semi-serious £15million. It was clearly likely to be rejected out of hand. And it was, with chief executive Ed Woodward declaring that the player was simply not for sale. Such a statement however is unlikely to deter PSG, and the next bid will be much more of the order required to elicit serious consideration from United.

Januzaj signed a new deal with United in October that saw his earning rise to a reported £30,000 per week, but the French club are likely to be prepared to more than treble that and make him one of the highest paid teenagers in world football. Despite the rebuff from United, Laurent Blanc, PSG’s manager, believes that a combination of big money and United’s poor performance this season may be sufficient to turn Januzaj’s head and convince him that his career would prosper better in Paris than Manchester.

So, what sort of bid are we talking? Reports in various newspapers indicate somewhere between £30miliion and £40million. Despite the great promise that Januzaj offers, that sort of money still remains an awfully large amount for someone with only half a season of first team football under his belt. Will united be tempted by the offer. I really can’t see that they will. In a season that has been disappointing to say the least, if it concludes with their bright young thing decamping to Paris, the roof may just tumble in on David Moyes’s regime at the club.

Football is a game of passions and opinions. If you’re a fan, it’s both your boon and your bane; the drug that you simply cannot live without. Your team will break your heart, make you despair and swear that you’ll give them up. Like some lovestruck fool ensnared by a femme fatale however, you’ll be back again next week. You know it. They know it. Just accept it and embrace it. The lows are bad, but oh, those highs….. Now in my sixth decade, I’ve been a football fan for over fifty years and a Chelsea fan for every one of them. I hold FA Coaching badges and have been a member of the FA Coaches Association for over 15 years, working with numerous teams of varying age and ability levels; it’s the next best thing to playing. That said, I still regularly don the guise of the ‘Panther’, and keep goal for our company team. I’ve written a number of articles focusing on Spanish Football for a different website, and welcome this opportunity to “call it as I see it, without fear or favour” about our game. As I said, football is a game of passions and opinions, so agree or disagree with what I write as you see fit, I’ll passionately tell you my opinion, you tell me yours.
