Well, Adnan Januzaj has got his wish. The young Belgian has sealed a move away from Manchester United, albeit on a loan basis. The 21-year-old is set to link up with former boss David Moyes at the Stadium of Light for the duration of the 2016/17 campaign.
Manchester United confirmed the news on their official Twitter feed earlier today, and it presents our young starlet with an opportunity to rediscover that stunning form he displayed in his debut season at the club.
Sadly, since Moyes gave Januzaj his big chance, it has all gone downhill rather quickly for him. He has looked lacking in confidence completely, and at times his attitude has come into question.
This offers one final glimmer of hope for the young man, and he has to grasp it with both hands. United have a good relationship with the Black Cats off the field, and Januzaj is the third player to switch between the two clubs since Moyes’ arrival.
