thumbnail Hello,

The Bianconeri's general manager has criticised the Premier League champions' handling of the 18-year-old's contract situation, with his current deal due to expire next summer

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has warned Manchester United that they risk losing Adnan Januzaj just as they failed to keep Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old attacker hit the headlines with a stunning double against Sunderland, but will be out of contract next summer – though United are ramping up their efforts to keep the teenager at the club.

France international Pogba left the club when his contract expired, signing for the Bianconeri on a free transfer, and the Juve chief has warned that history could repeat itself with Januzaj.

"If they fear another case like Pogba's then they are right," Marotta told Tuttosport.

"It's difficult to understand how we can reach a stage eight months prior to the contract expiring without seeing a renewal.

"Januzaj is a player showing big promise. He is a player of great quality."

Januzaj is currently at the centre of an international tug-of-war, while Pogba has helped Antonio Conte's men secure their second successive Scudetto following his move to Turin.
