Sunderland are keen to sign Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan and are set to enquire about his availability, according to the Daily Mail.
The report suggests Januzaj is available for loan this summer and Sunderland’s newly-appointed manager, David Moyes, wants to take the young Belgian to the Stadium of Light.
Moyes, who managed Manchester United during the 2013/14 season, has a history of going after his former players, so his reported interest in Januzaj is not a great surprise.
The former United manager gave Januzaj his first-team Manchester United debut in the Community Shield game against Wigan Athletic on August 11, 2013.
Januzaj took the opportunity with both hands and went on to start 15 Premier League games for United during the 2013/14 season.
It was a great breakthrough season for Januzaj, but his development has stalled in recent times and he’s been in and out of the first team ever since Moyes was sacked.
The 21-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, but only made 7 appearances for Thomas Tuchel’s side before his loan was cut short on January 7th.
Januzajcan still become a top player, but he needs regular first-team football in order to fulfil his potential and further his development.
Moving to Sunderland on loan would be a great move for Januzaj as he’d be able to play regular first-team football in the Premier League.
