United grab 'the Belgian Beckham'

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is snapping up Belgium’s ‘new David Beckham’ - teenage sensation Adnan Januzaj.
Ferguson has tied up a deal for the right winger, who stars for Anderlecht’s youth teams but is coming to England on a staggering four-year contract.
Januzaj, who comes from a Serbian background, will pick up a stunning £120,000-a-year for the next four-and-a-half seasons - a deal that will make him one of the highest-paid kids at Old Trafford.
United, who will have to pay Anderlecht a ‘training and development’ fee, have beaten off several other top European clubs for the player.
Januzaj, who has just turned 16, agreed to join United after looking at other clubs and visiting many of them.
He will go into Ferguson’s academy, but is tipped to make rapid strides.
