PICTURE: Januzaj already considered one of European football’s finest prospects

by Sam Peoples

Adnan Januzaj has been named on a list of the top ten young stars of tomorrow in a feature run by France’s L’Equipe today.

The 18-year-old is named on the list alongside the likes of Real Madrid’s Isco, Athletico’s Thibaut Courtois, Schalke’s Julian Draxler and Juventus’ Paul Pogba.

Up until six weeks ago, it was only really those who followed United’s reserves that knew just how talented he was. He had showcased it on the pre-season tour but last year, he was phenomenal with the Under-18s and then the Under-21s where he was named Academy Player of the Year.

Yet now, he is coveted as one of the finest burgeoning talents in European football. What a meteoric rise.

It isn’t just L’Equipe who have hailed Januzaj as one of the brightest young talents of the future as he has been nominated for the prestigious Golden Boy award by Tuttosport.
