Adnan Januzaj is a name that everyone will be familiar with following a string of impressive performances for Manchester United which has led to claims he will be the next superstar at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old joined Manchester United three years ago from Anderlecht with a promising future ahead of him.

Januzaj had been making waves in the youth sides and was given his chance to show what he could do whilst on tour with the club in Asia.

The more he showed what he was capable of doing, the more David Moyes played the teenager and by the time the season came to a start, the coaching staff must have decided that the boy was a bit special.

Januzaj has been the bright light at Old Trafford this year after a turbulent beginning to Moyes' career in charge of Manchester United.

If fans were still unsure of what he was capable of achieving, his performance away at Sunderland at the beginning of October was mesmerising.

On his full debut, Adnan Januzaj equalised against the Black Cats early on before unleashing a delicious left volley into the far corner to seal the victory for his side.

Januzaj had exploded onto the scene and the focus on his young shoulders was extraordinary.

Since then, the teenager has caused a stir with his nationality as his parents are from Kosovo and Albania but he was born in Brussels, Belgium.

He is eligible for all these national sides and it remains possible that he could play a starring role for England in the future too if he so chooses.

However, this is secondary to his career for the moment with the primary focus being to secure a regular first team place in the Manchester United set up to help them achieve Champions League qualification.

Most recently, Januzaj turned in a man of the match display against Swansea with teammate Darren Fletcher describing his rise in the game as a 'revelation'.

The future looks bright for Januzaj and while Moyes looks to be keeping faith in his development, he will need to play very well to improve Manchester United's transitional year.
