Adnan Januzaj has been handed over the jersey 9 for this season. Borussia Dortmund will definitely benefit from this deal as Januzaj is an extremely talented and promising young talent.
Adnan Januzaj had been tipped to move throughout the summer for getting first team football, but Sunderland’s attempts to get the wonder kid on loan was rejected by Louis van Gaal.
After having a breakthrough to the first team during David Moyes’ reign at Old Trafford, the promising midfielder saw his game time largely reduced after the arrival of Louis van Gaal.
He played as a number 10 this season before getting injured and scored one goal. He had scored the only goal against Aston Villa in the second match of the Premier League. His goal proved decisive for United as the team sealed all three points.
Even Though Januzaj started in this season, Louis van Gaal definitely felt that a season long loan would benefit the player.
Only problem Manchester United will face is the lack squad depth as Januzaj leaves on loan and they do not have enough time to recover it. Over the frustration this summer for missing out on Pedro and getting ridiculously linked with superstars like Muller, Bale and Neymar, they failed to land anyone of the attackers. With Rooney struggling for goals, they lack a striker and if JAnuzaj moves they will also lack quality and quantity wise at attacking midfield.
Manchester United also sold Angel Di Maria to PSG earlier this summer. It will be interesting to see Louis van Gaal will now field his side in absence of the Belgian.
