The 19 years old rising star of Manchester United, Adnan Januzaj is making a splash in Europe as there are top clubs that are interested in signing the Belgium attacking midfielder and it is believed that the Premier League club is willing to sell him for the right price.

The Dutch titans Ajax is one of the latest European clubs that has been linked with Adnan Januzaj. Ajax is rumored to be interested in signing the young player on an 18 month long loan deal.

Edwin van der Sar is the marketing director of Ajax and the former goalkeeper of Manchester United stated that Ajax is not able to splash out a big money deal in signing him on a permanent contract and this is why the Dutch club is more interested in just signing Januzaj on a loan contract more than anything else.

Van der Sar said: “Well, if you have the number of his agent: give it me with confidence. But I fear that we can’t pay his salary.”

Adnan Januzaj started to emerge in the previous season when David Moyes was in charge of Manchester United, one of the few players that managed to perform well was Januzaj along with David de Gea.

A move to Ajax would guarantee Januzaj more playing time in the first team where he would gain more experience at a faster pace.  The 19 year old Belgium midfielder started this season of the Premier League being a consistent benchwarmer on the sidelines of Manchester United but Louis van Gaal has started to feature the youngster in his starting lineup on a more consistent basis which means that the Dutch coach could have Januzaj in his plans for the near future. If this is true and Louis van Gaal does have a plan for Januzaj then he will not be interested in selling the young rising star.
