Manchester United fans had high hopes when Adnan Januzaj was given the No.11 shirt following Ryan Giggs’ retirement from the club, but the youngster has now completed a move to Borussia Dortmund.
Despite a string of recent starts for Man United under Louis van Gaal, the Dutchman doesn’t feel Januzaj is ready for United and has decided a season in the Bundesliga is the right option for him.
Januzaj was given an opportunity to shine in the No.10 spot by van Gaal but clearly didn’t make enough of an impact to keep him at the club this season.
Will it be a good move for Januzaj? Here’s a few things United fans had to say:
Pleased to sign for Dortmund 😁 ! Looking forward to new season 👍⚽️ pic.twitter.com/dhEOhz45i5

What are united doing? Jeez. Januzaj is the most baffling thing he's actually looked pretty good so far…

With De Gea, Chicharito and Januzaj gone, feel we have 2-3 more signings on our way. Too late but hopefully not too little @ManUtd

Let Januzaj go but keep young? #really

A strong season away from the limelight of Old Trafford has the potential to do wonders for his confidence and progressions, especially considering the abundance of talent in the Dortmund squad.
Hopefully he comes back brimming with confidence and ready to prove his doubters wrong.
