The man who was looking to be the next star of United some years before is now making a move away from the club. Yes we are talking about the Belgian International Adnan Januzaj.
Januzaj joined United in 2014 and looked to be the next star but after Moyes was sacked and Van Gaal took charge, he was considered no more important for the club and was sent away on loan. He is not in the interests of Jose Mourinho as he was one of the United men who was not called in their Pre-Season Training in Los Angeles. Just some seasons before this young lad was nominated for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year and he took the world by storm.
The then 18 year old got his start in October 2013 under David Moyes and he was pretty impressive in his early days which got him the nomination for the award. Moyes always gave youth a chance and of course he was punished for this very reason as he took Manchester United to a new low and almost made them play like Everton, his former team.
When Louis Van Gaal stepped in, things changed considerably as he was looking to bring in new faces and make a big change in the squad. He brought in Herrera, Rojo, Angel Di Maria and so on. This had an adverse effect on the young lad as he lost game time and match practice. In 2017, the Red Devils have received numerous offers for the Belgian and it is understood to be his performance in the Moyes era. For them, it is just signing a young lad into the team who can be a big prospect for the team as they have already seen his talent in the past and it is just getting him back on form. If he gets back to his form he can do wonders for a club and come back to the bigger stage. He should look down and train hard in the training ground now as he has got a signal that to stay in a big club he has to play well.
He was handed an opportunity to chose a club which he would like and he snapped up the offer of the Spanish club, Real Sociedad. The clubs have reportedly signed a £9.8 million deal and Januzaj is now just a step away from joining La Liga. He will be seen leaving the club soon after the medical and other transfer proceedings are done. There is a funny thing to note out here,by coincident Januzaj has been mostly in the clubs were David Moyes has managed.
Leaving Januzaj, this is a signal for all the Manchester United academy prospects as they might have to leave Old Trafford if they can not perform according to the club’s standards and there is no wrong in that because United is a high profile club and every high profile club should do this as emphasizing on a talented youth squad can make their tomorrow better and now it is the time to make their coming days better.
