Adnan Januzaj is set tocomplete a loan move away from Old Trafford on loan after a lack of minutes with Manchester United so far this season.
The 19-year-old has started just two games this season, albeit against Chelsea and Manchester City, when Louis van Gaal decided to line-up with two wingers.
But both the diamond formation and the current 3-5-2 system means there is no room for an out and out winger and it appears Van Gaal doesn’t wish to play the Belgian in the wing back position.
Januzaj didn’t even get off the bench against Yeovil in the FA Cup last weekend and appears set for a loan spell in order to get some minutes under his belt.
Supporters who watched Januzaj rise through the youth teams know last season wasn’t a fluke and the manager entrusted him to play in big games against City and Chelsea, so Van Gaal clearly has faith in him but just can’t find space for him in the side..
He also gave the teenager the honour of wearing the no.11 shirt, the first time since the late 1980s someone has worn the shirt who isn’t called Ryan Giggs.
Januzaj did get half an hour on New Years Day as United drew with Stoke but it still appears as though the Belgian will leave on loan this month.
He is said to have plenty of Premier League suitors whilst Juventus and Inter Milan are also said to be following his progress from afar.
