Adnan Januzaj claims he will play anywhere for Manchester United and that it is ‘just a case of taking any opportunities.’

The Belgian has come back into the limelight since he was linked with a loan move in January, having started just two games all season before the turn of the year.

When he didn’t even make it off the bench against Yeovil Town, rumours of a loan move away increased but Louis van Gaal threw him into the starting line-up for games against Cambridge in the FA Cup and Leicester in the Premier League.

Despite playing at times in the no.10 position and recently back on the wing where he emerged under David Moyes, Januzaj says he is happy to play anywhere.

“My game is all about trying to make things happen,” Adnan told

Although he can operate centrally, attacking from out wide has largely been Januzaj’s preferred position, he played there against both Sunderland and Newcastle recently and changed the game in United’s favour on both occasions.

“We had the diamond at Cambridge and I played as a left-midfielder,” he said.

“I feel comfortable there as well. I think I can play well there without a problem.

“My favourite position is as a winger or a no.10. There are a lot of players here and I can play in different roles – it is just a case of taking any opportunities.”

With van Gaal seemingly set to stay with the 4-3-3 for a while longer, it certainly increases Januzaj’s chances of regular involvement given his skill, technique and burning pace, especially if needed as a substitute later in the game.
