Manchester United want Adnan Januzaj to join Premier League club

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is ready to disappoint David Moyes and Roberto Mancini by sending talented playmaker Adnan Januzaj out on loan to a Premier League club in January.

Moyes, the Real Sociedad head coach, and Inter Milan’s Mancini are both keen to sign the 19-year-old Belgium international on a loan deal when the transfer window re-opens in less than two weeks’ time.

However, the Daily Mail report that Van Gaal would prefer Januzaj to continue his development in England’s top domestic league, rather than abroad.

Hull City & Everton interested

The report adds that at least two Premier League clubs have shown an interest in signing Manchester United’s latest number 11. Hull City boss Steve Bruce - a former Red Devils’ star - is keen to sign the forward on a temporary basis, while Everton manager Roberto Martinez is also considering a move.

Januzaj was expected to establish his status as a key player for Manchester United this season after bursting onto the scene last term, but has struggled to earn a place in the Red Devils’ starting line-up following Van Gaal’s arrival in the summer.

Januzaj's frustration

The Belgian winger, who sees himself playing as a No. 10 in the future, has played one minute of football since United’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on November 8.

In total he has completed just two Premier League matches this term, and has failed to register a single goal or assist.

But despite his lack of game-time, there’s little doubt that Januzaj - a popular figure amongst the Manchester United supporters - has the potential to become a household name over the forthcoming years.

Van Gaal sees Januzaj's talent

Van Gaal will be acutely aware that Januzaj needs to be playing week-in, week-out at this crucial stage of his career. However, the veteran Dutchman recognises the player’s immense talent and potential and will not entertain any offers to take the teenager away on a permanent deal.

By signing a five-year contract last season, Januzaj is tied down to Manchester United until 2018.

But a temporary spell away from Old Trafford may allow him to kick-start his United career - for the second time - at the beginning of next season.
