Adnan Januzaj set to complete free transfer to Sevilla

by David O'Neill


Former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj is set to sign for Sevilla.

His five-year contract at Real Sociedad came to an end last month, allowing him to make the move on a free transfer.

The news comes from transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who earlier tweeted:

Adnan Januzaj, in Sevilla as revealed earlier today – he’s set to undergo medical tests and sign with Sevilla tomorrow.”

Januzaj was linked with a reunion with David Moyes, who gave him is debut as an 18-year-old.

West Ham did not manage to secure his signature however, with the Belgian opting to remain in Spain instead.

Januzaj made 27 appearances during Moyes’ season in charge at Manchester United and provided a bright spark in an otherwise dull campaign.

Tipped for a bright future at Old Trafford, he went on to start just ten more matches for the Red Devils before an unsuccessful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund.

A lukewarm loan at Sunderland reunited him with Moyes as the Black Cats relegated that season.

United subsequently sold the winger to Real Sociedad for a paltry £8m.

He was in and out of the Spanish side’s first eleven over the next five years, meeting Manchester United as part of the team that suffered a 4-0 home defeat against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the Europa League Round of 32 in 2021.

Still only 27 years of age, Januzaj has plenty of time to reignite his career. He remains on the fringes of the Belgian National Team’s squad and a good start in Southern Spain could put him in line for a role in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
