David Moyes not interested in signing Adnan Januzaj

David Moyes has insisted that he has no interest in bringing Adnan Januzaj to Real Sociedad on loan despite suggesting he is one of the biggest talents he has worked with.

The Belgian wizz-kid was handed his Manchester United debut by Moyes and he quickly became a key part of the first team. He was soon handed a five-year deal worth £60,000-a-week; a wage justified by his obvious talent.

But Moyes was sacked by Manchester United before the end of the season and replaced by Louis van Gaal. The 19-year-old has since been frozen out of the first team picture with the Dutchman struggling to fit him into the 3-5-2 system he has brought to Old Trafford.

"I've read about it but I don't know where it has come from. It hasn't come from me"

Leaving in January

That has led to suggestions that Januzaj would be allowed to leave the club on a temporary basis in the January transfer window. Now at Real Sociedad, a reunion with his biggest fan, Moyes, was widely tipped by reports.

Januzaj is currently disillusioned with his situation at Old Trafford and linking up with the manager who rates him highest seemed a good move for all parties.

However, somewhat surprisingly, Moyes has suggested that he is not interested in bringing Januzaj to San Sebastian, but went on to liken Januzaj to the great Dutch legend Johan Cruyff.

He told ESPN: "I've read about it but I don't know where it has come from. It hasn't come from me.

"He's a wonderful player gifted with great balance and the ability to go past people with little ease. When I see his poise on the ball he has characteristics of Johan Cruyff."

Staying at Old Trafford

It is just as well that Moyes is not interested in Januzaj as reports in today's Mirror said that Manchester United were not planning to loan him out in the current window. Despite not starting a Premier League game since November, Van Gaal wants the winger to continue his development at Carrington, even if that means a lack of first team football.
