Adnan Januzaj fears being sidelined by Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder is unsure where he fits in at the club following the £60m acquisition of former-Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria.

The Belgium international even refused to swap shirts with one of the MK Dons players on Tuesday night, reportedly telling them: “Sorry, I want to keep it, it might be my last game.”

Five year deal

Januzaj signed a five-year contract with the 2013 Premier League champions just 10 months ago after emerging as one of the rare bright spots from the David Moyes reign.

That deal made him the best paid teenager in the world at the time, although new Manchester United recruit Luke Shaw may have broken that mark after his £27m switch from Southampton this summer.

PSG interest

But Januzaj has attracted plenty of interest himself, with his agent confirming earlier this year that PSG offered his player an astonishing offer to quit United and move to Paris. They were believed to be willing to bid £40m.

It would be a massive shock should Van Gaal decide to dispense with one of the club’s shining lights before the deadline, but the report claims Januzaj fears a late move having been ostracised since the Dutchman’s arrival.

Substitute option

He was sent on for just three minutes against Burnley, and was also a substitute against MK Dons and Sunderland.

Following the arrival of Di Maria, the Belgium’s path to the first team got even more difficult although injury to Juan Mata suffered against the Clarets could offer a route back into the starting lineup.
