Manchester United look close to confirming an exit for Adnan Januzaj. Journalist Kristof Terreur uploaded a photo to Twitter of the Belgian undergoing his Real Sociedad medical earlier today, with the 22-year-old set to leave permanently.
This comes just hours after the BBC reported that United had agreed a £9.8million move to sell the talented attacker, after things went rapidly downhill following a couple of failed loan moves.

Terreur also adds that United have the first option to buy him back if Januzaj starts performing to that high level that we know he can play at – which certainly makes sense.
It’s a real shame to see him performing so badly because we know he has bags of ability and talent – but since his breakthrough season, he just hasn’t shown it.
Jose Mourinho never really looked keen on Januzaj hence why he did move to Sunderland on a twelve-month deal, but he hardly set the world alight last campaign – and that’s probably why the club are allowing him to leave permanently.
I guess we’re quite stacked in the final third of the field, with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata all ahead of him in the pecking order. It also seems like we’ll be adding Ivan Perisic if all goes well too…
