Man Utd outcast Januzaj wants Premier League stay

Adnan Januzaj wants to remain in England next season after he is shown the door at Manchester United in the summer.

The attacking midfielder burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old, scoring twice on his first start for United against Sunderland.

His career has since stagnated, spending time away from the club on loan after he failed to recapture the form he showed in his debut season.

He first joined Borussia Dortmund, making just six appearances and eventually saw the deal cut short after United recalled the Belgian.

A move to Sunderland this season followed, but Januzaj has failed to impress for the Black Cats, who sit bottom of the Premier League, nine points from safety.

Januzaj is now set to leave Old Trafford permanently at the end of the season after failing to impress an on-looking Jose Mourinho.

And, according to the Sun, United hope to use the Belgian as a make-weight in transfer deals this summer.

But the paper claims that the midfielder hopes to continue plying his trade in England at the start of next season.

A Red Devils source said: “Adnan wants to stay in England. He’s expected to leave the club this summer and is not wanted by Jose anymore.

“He hasn’t had a very good season at Sunderland either. Talks are planned between his camp and United sometime next month.

“He has told close pals the Premier League is still his first choice and that he enjoys living in this country and that he likes it here.”
