Adnan Januzaj linked with Serie A switch to AC Milan

Published 2 Comments

Adnan Januzaj's future at Manchester United was plunged even further in doubt this week after he was omitted from Jose Mourinho's 23-man squad to face Galatasaray in Sweden later today.

The Belgian was a rare shining light in David Moyes' sole season in charge at Old Trafford but has failed to kick on and with Mourinho keen to trim his new squad, Januzaj is expected to be among those shown the exit.

Speculation earlier this week suggested the 21-year-old could link up with Moyes at Sunderland but another club are now also thought to be in the running.

Italian giants AC Milan have been linked with a move for the midfielder, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, with Vincenzo Montella ready to end Januzaj's slump at Man United.

At the moment, the report suggests this is merely interest and no formal move has been made yet but Montella will be hoping the prospect of playing at the San Siro every week can be a useful bargaining tool.

The former European champions are far from the unstoppable force that dominated the Champions League during the mid-2000's and finished last season languishing in seventh place in Serie A, 31 points behind Juventus.

The Rossoneri's proud history still makes them an attractive proposition for the majority of players not regularly featuring in the Champions League and Januzaj would certainly fit into that criteria.

United's squad isn't exactly brimming full of world class wingers but Henrikh Mkhitaryan's summer arrival has pushed Januzaj even further down the pecking order.

Following a disappointing loan spell at Borussia Dortmund last season, the youngster has a lot to prove to convince his new manager he is worth keeping.

The Red Devils will be wary that the winger's contract expires in 2018 so his value will only decrease if he isn't sold this summer, particularly if he will be stuck on the fringes for another campaign.
