Real Sociedad manager David Moyes has admitted he wants to bring in loan reinforcements during the January transfer window after the former Manchester United boss was linked with a move for Adnan Januzaj.
The young Belgian starred under Moyes and was given his chance to shine at United during the manager’s ten months at the helm at Old Trafford but the teenager has found game time hard to come by under Louis van Gaal, only regularly starting games when United set out to play with two wingers as against Chelsea and Manchester City.
Against lesser opposition, Januzaj has had to make do with a spot on the bench at best and it appears his former boss will do everything to link up with the Belgian international once again next month.
“January is never the best time but if there are boys who could come here and help the team and we can have a look at them for six months then we’ll do that,” said Moyes after his first Basque derby on Sunday.
Januzaj was handed his first team debut in Moyes’ first game in the Community Shield against Wigan last season before scoring two goals against Sunderland on his first league start for the club.
However, with Van Gaal preferring either a diamond formation of a 3-5-2 system, Januzaj can’t work his way into the team as United rarely play with proper wingers.
Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Angel Di Maria are keeping him out of the number ten spot with the more disciplined Antonio Valencia preferred in the wing-back position and with a lack of cup games for Januzaj to shine, a January loan move may be the best thing for his progress.
