Manchester United Football Club have long been known for their rich traditions and history when it comes to developing youth players. We’ve always become accustomed to stars making their way through the ranks and performing at the highest level.
A few years ago, it looked like Adnan Januzaj was going to be the next in a long line of superstars, and the Belgian started supremely brightly, with a couple of goals on debut.
However, since then, things have gone rapidly downhill and the now 22-year-old spent last season out on loan at Sunderland – where he struggled massively.
Now, it looks as though his Manchester United days are over, that’s according to BBC journalist Simon Stone, who expects the attacker to leave the club this summer.
Real Sociedad one of a few options for Adnan Januzaj. Will leave @ManUtd this summer. One of David Moyes' few successes but struggled since.

To be honest, I’m pretty disappointed. He looked like he was going to turn into an absolute world beater, but for some reason, he’s just remained stagnant, in fact, he’s probably gone backwards.
Jose Mourinho wouldn’t have been best pleased with his performances whilst at Sunderland in the 2016/17 campaign, and if the club can get any sort of decent transfer fee to let him go then a move would probably make sense. With that said, I wouldn’t mind some sort of buyback clause inserted into his contract.
