Adnan Januzaj is bulking up in an attempt to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Januzaj's emergence has been one of the few bright spots in a miserable season for Manchester United.

The 19-year-old winger has made 34 appearances, scoring four goals and impressing with his trickery and forward thinking.

And Januzaj hopes by studying Real Madrid forward Ronaldo he can make similar improvements to the former United star and current world player of the year.

The winger told Inside United: "I watch him a lot and try to do the same things that he does.

"He is a very good player. I always look at him and watch his games as well and try to do what he is doing and remember what he did at Manchester United.

"I have to work hard in the gym like he did because, when he came here, he wasn't strong. But after a year or so he became really strong and could push people away.

"I'm getting a bit stronger now due to the gym work."
