As we’ve reported today, Adnan Januzaj is set to join La Liga side Real Sociedad and pictures have now been released of the Belgian winger undergoing his medical.

Januzaj, who is now 22, will join Real Sociedad for a fee in the region of £9.8m but crucially Man United have included a buy-back clause which means there is a chance for Januzaj to return in the future if he absolutely smashes it out in Spain.
There’s a real bittersweet feeling about seeing Januzaj complete his Real Sociedad medical. There aren’t many players who have lit up the academy teams quite like he did nor have there been many who enjoyed such a brilliant debut season.
Unfortunately, David Moyes’ departure signalled the start of Januzaj’s decline and under Louis van Gaal he never really got the same level of opportunities because the new United boss didn’t ever truly trust him.
Now, Januzaj will be following Moyes’ footsteps across to Real Sociedad. Hopefully he can have a better time of it out there than Moyes did but from both United’s and Januzaj’s perspective, him leaving the club this summer is absolutely the right thing to do.
