Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj earns more than Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi did at the same age.

Januzaj signed a new five-year deal worth £30,00-per-week in November.

The player's representative Dirk De Vriese says the deal made Januzaj the best paid youngster in world football.

"I can say Adnan's the best paid youngster in the world. He earns more than Ronaldo and Messi when they were 18," said De Vriese.
