The Daily Star Sunday says United hope a new deal worth in excess of £20,000 a week - potentially rising to £29.4k on some occasions - will see them win their fight to keep the emerging talent.
It is an incredible situation for a player aged just 18 and currently earning, in Premier League terms, 'only' £2,500 a week - plus appearance money of £1,200 a game and win bonuses of £6,000 a match.
But that is something United are urgently trying to address, with a new deal of around £15,000-a-week - plus those bonuses - being discussed.
It means in a good week, when United play and win twice, Januzaj could pocket £29.4k.
