Louis van Gaal ready to offload fan favourite from Manchester United

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is considering selling winger Adnan Januzaj next season, according to reports from the Manchester Evening News

Januzaj burst into the scene for Manchester United two seasons ago and while the Red Devils endured a terrible campaign under then manager David Moyes, the young winger proved to be the rare silver lining for the Premier League side.

Januzaj likely to depart United

Following his fine debut season, it was expected that Januzaj would go on to become a mainstay in the United first team under new manager Louis van Gaal last season but to the surprise of many, the Belgian international was limited to a very few first team opportunities throughout the course of the campaign.

It is clear to see that van Gaal does not rate Januzaj too highly and as a testament to this fact, the 20-year old was unceremoniously offloaded on loan to German side Borussia Dortmund over the summer despite United not having too many attacking options at their disposal.

While van Gaal has insisted that Januzaj remains a key part of his plans at Old Trafford, it has now been claimed by the Manchester Evening News that the Dutch manager is seriously considering offloading the young winger next season.

Van Gaal is monitoring Januzaj very closely and while the United boss is open to keeping hold of the Belgian if he manages to impress at Dortmund during the current campaign, it is very likely that the 20-year old will be facing the axe from Old Trafford upon his return.
