Man Utd hand Januzaj family £5M signing-on fee

Adnan Januzaj's family is swimming in money after the Manchester United winger's new deal.

The People says Januzaj has landed the biggest pay-day for a ­teenager in Manchester United's history - including a whopping signing-on fee of £5million.

Belgian wonderkid Januzaj, just 18, will be paid a basic salary of £60,000 a week, and his signing-on fee will be paid in weekly instalments of £20,000 spread over the five years of his new deal.

The contract outstrips past deals for stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney and, more recently, agreements for young England stars like Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley.
