Manchester United have confirmed that Adnan Januzaj has left the club on a permanent deal. The winger, 22 has joined Spanish side Real Sociedad, and he’ll be hoping to make an impact out in La Liga after an extremely tough couple of years in England.
For me, it always felt like the writing for him was on the wall when Jose Mourinho came over. One of his first bits of transfer business was letting Januzaj head to Sunderland on loan – and it’s fair to say he didn’t really impress with the Black Cats either.
Shortly after the deal was agreed, the attacker took to social media to plan an incredibly heartfelt letter to the club and the Manchester United fans in general.

Although it’s sad to see him go, I find it refreshing that he’ll openly talk about how his time here didn’t go as planned. The best part about his statement is the fact that he’s thanked the United fans for sticking by him through the good times and the bad, and that we’ll always hold a place in his heart.
I’m just gutted, because that debut season was stunning. He literally carried Moyes’ Manchester United at times during that six months or so, and to see him fizzle out so dramatically is a real shame.
I hope he can rediscover that magic that he is more than capable of whilst with Real Sociedad.
