Lyon prioritise a move in January for Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj – report

by Leo Nieboer

Lyon have placed Adnan Januzaj at the top of their priority list for this month’s transfer window, according to reports from France.

The Belgian rose to prominence in emphatic fashion under David Moyes back in 2013, enjoying a superb debut campaign at Old Trafford following his memorable debut against Sunderland.

Life under Louis van Gaal, on the other hand, was less fruitful, and the youngster was sent out to Sunderland on loan last summer after failing to break into Jose Mourinho‘s first team squad.

And according to French media outlet L’Equipe, Lyon have expressed a firm interest in the 21-year-old.

Januzaj’s natural ability will always attract continental clubs looking for the next wonder-kid, and Lyon’s interest serves as a case in point.

The Belgian’s stint at Sunderland has reminded everyone of his aptitude for simultaneously thrilling and frustrating supporters: capable of producing some truly sublime, game-changing moments on the ball; also capable of frequently losing the ball during a high-tempo midfield battle.

Jose Mourinho will have to make a serious decision over Januzaj: is it worth taking the clearly talented but notably mercurial youngster on board at next season, or is it best to stick with his current crop of talent and offload him to another club?
