Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj has revealed that he doesn't know whether he will be at Old Trafford next season.

After failing to secure a regular role under the guidance of Louis van Gaal, the talented 20-year-old moved to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan deal at the end of the summer transfer window. 

Ultimately, though, things haven't worked out too well for the Belgium international; featuring in just six Bundesliga games, the youngster has only secured 165 minutes of league football in Germany.

Unsurprisingly, then, Januzaj has also admitted that he's in need of more game time as he continues his development. 

One thing is for sure, it's far from certain as to whether he will play for Manchester United again. As reported by the Mirror, when asked if he will return to Old Trafford, the versatile forward stated: “I don’t know.

“I wanted to join somewhere I could play and there were a few things behind that were a problem but I’m happy here. I just need more games to play and then I’ll be fine.”

Wrong move 

It's clear for all to see that Januzaj made the wrong decision by opting to join Dortmund. Limited to cup football, he is far too good to be sitting on the bench week in, week out.

Perhaps, he should have stayed in England; a move to a lesser club in the Premier League would have helped his progression. He will have yet another important decision to make in 2016 and he must get this one right. 

Still a talent 

Despite his recent struggle, Januzaj should still be considered an exciting talent. He has failed to live up to his early hype, of course, but there's no reason why he won't be able to prove his credentials over the coming years. United fans will still be hoping to see Januzaj shine at the Theatre of Dreams, but they won't be getting their hopes up at this stage. 

United fans: do you expect Januzaj to return? Have your say below!
