Adnan Januzaj: Faces six weeks on the sidelines

Manchester United are “actively looking to sell” Adnan Januzaj this summer, according to a report.

The 22-year-old forward will be shipped out by Jose Mourinho this window, according to ESPN.

Mourinho is happy to sell the Belgium international, who could command a fee of around £10million to £15million.

The report claims United split up the first-team into three groups of players with Januzaj among the list that have been told they can leave and this latest report echoes claims last month from The Times and The Telegraph that United were ready to axe the player.

Galatasaray and Real Sociedad are interested in signing Januzaj, while last month Ligue 1 club Marseille and Lyon were believed to be a showing an interest.

Turkish outlet Hurriyet recently reported that Gala were planning to make an approach for the former Sunderland loanee.

Januzaj would be classed a domestic player due in Super Lig due to his part-Turkish heritage through his grandparents.

Sociedad have admitted their interest in the forward, whose contract has only 12 months to run.  The club are apparently keen to offload the player before he can leave for free next season, while also getting his £50,000 a week salary off the books.

Januzaj has made a total of 63 appearances during his time at Manchester United, scoring five times.

He was loaned to Sunderland last summer for the season but he could only manage 18 Premier League starts as the club were relegated.
