The 19-year-old sensation broke on to the scene under David Moyes, scoring two goals on his first start for the club at Sunderland and was a shining light in what was otherwise a torrid season.
When he was given the no.11 shirt at the start of the current campaign it appeared Louis van Gaal had big plans for the teenager but just two league starts sees Januzaj on the verge of a loan spell away.
The manager’s decision to play 3-5-2 in the absence of top quality defenders has meant the winger has had to sit out which his position on the pitch becoming non-existent in the current system.
What do the fans think Januzaj should do?
@PeoplesPerson_ 100% out on loan, needs game time.

@PeoplesPerson_ clear he lacks confidence, despite LVG training. So game time most probs needed 2 develop further

@PeoplesPerson_ Game time is the first priority for him here. So, loan. But not to some team where he’ll just be another squad member.

Januzaj was entrusted to start matches against Chelsea and Manchester City when van Gaal played with two out and out wingers and it should give the 19-year-old confidence that he was chosen for those games.
If Van Gaal does indeed revert to his favoured 4-3-3 formation next season, a successful loan spell for Januzaj could see him become a first team regular again next season.
United will undoubtedly try and get him a Premier League loan but Juventus have already praised the ‘excellent’ winger and a move to Italy could be on the cards.
