Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj has left the club on a permanent deal. The club announced that he has joined Real Sociedad, bringing an end to his time at Old Trafford, for whom he played 66 times, scoring five goals.
It all started out so well for the 22-year-old as a Red Devil, as he scored two stunning goals on his full debut against Sunderland. For the remainder of that season, he was nothing short of outstanding for us. At times, he carried us through games almost single-handedly.
In the following season, he became more of a bit-part player under Louis van Gaal, but he still made plenty of appearances. Then came his first loan move away – Borussia Dortmund. He struggled out in Germany, and that’s when you kind of knew that he may find it difficult to work his way back into the team.
One of Jose Mourinho’s first orders of business was shipping him out on loan to Sunderland where he again linked up with David Moyes, but he couldn’t stop his side from being relegated, and it’s fair to say his performance levels continued to drop.
With that said, he did give us some brilliant memories and it is a proper shame how it ended. He has all the talent in the world and that will not diminish. I hope he absolutely kills it in La Liga with Sociedad; and I’m sure he will.
All the best Adnan, and thanks for some brilliant memories.
