Januzaj tipped to become United's main striker

Manchester United sensation Adnan Januzaj has been tipped to evolve into the club's next No.9 by assistant manager Steve Round.

The youngster, who has enjoyed a brilliant start to his debut season in the United first-team, starred in the No.10 role alongside Javier Hernandez during the 4-0 humbling of Norwich in last night's Capital One Cup fixture, despite generally being regarded as a winger.

And Red Devils' assistant manager Steven Round believes that Januzaj is more than comfortable playing as a main striker, and has tipped him to make the transition in the future.

"Adnan has gone from strength to strength," Round said after last night's victory.

"We see him as a no.7, 10 or 11. He can play any of those three.

"And if you ask our Reserves coach [Warren Joyce], who had him last season, he’d say he felt his best position was no.9. He played there for the Reserves."

Januzaj has been lauded so far as a player of great potential, and if Round's comments are true then he could be aiming to dislodge either Robin van Persie or Wayne Rooney, who currently dominate the striking positions.

The 18-year-old recently signed a new five-year deal at Old Trafford and has been one of the better players under David Moyes so far.
