Mourinho sanctions £9.7m sale of Man Utd man – report

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a £9.7million deal to sell Adnan Januzaj to La Liga club Real Sociedad.

The 22-year-old forward spent the season on loan last term and played 25 times for Sunderland in the Premier League without scoring as David Moyes’ men were relegated.

Marseille and Lyon have been linked with his services, but France Football claim a deal with Sociedad has been agreed with Januzaj discussing personal terms.

The Times last week claimed Januzaj was not in the plans of Jose Mourinho and he would be allowed to leave Old Trafford and it now appears Spain will be his destination.

The Belgium star emerged during Moyes’ ill-fated nine months in charge at Old Trafford in 2013/14 – but since then, the Brussels-born player has seen his career massively stall.

Astonishingly, the player was handed a £50,000 a week deal by United soon after his breakthrough under Moyes.

He then spent a chunk of the 2015/16 season on loan with Borussia Dortmund, but only made six appearances after struggling to make an impression before returning to United under a cloud with a question mark over his attitude.

Januzaj, who has one year left on his contract, has made a total of 63 appearances during his time at Manchester United, scoring five times after joining United from Anderlecht as a youth player in 2011.
