Representatives for Adnan Januzaj are demanding a bumper signing-on fee from Manchester United before he commits to a new contract.
The Daily Star Sunday says his representatives want a £100,000 signing-on fee as part of a new £20k-a-week-plus deal.
But United want to increase the winger’s basic pay to £15k a week from £2.5k and are reluctant to also pay a six-figure signing fee for a player who is already at the club.
It means there are tough negotiations ahead for United’s new chief executive Ed Woodward in the coming weeks as the club fights to keep Januzaj.
