Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that he has made a decision about the future of winger Adnan Januzaj.
The comments came ahead of Manchester United's visit to Sunderland at the weekend, where the Belgian has been on-loan for the season. Since his breakthrough season at Old Trafford under his current manager David Moyes, the 22 year old has had a turbulent time. Last season, he spent the first half of the season in Germany on loan at Dortmund, but he failed to make an impact. Regardless of Mourinho's occulted statement, it is likely that Januzaj will leave United at the end of the season. United will want to cash-in before he can leave the club for free in January given that his contract expires in June 2018. Apr 7 - 3:38 PM

Sunderland manager David Moyes reveals on-loan winger Adnan Januzaj could return from injury sooner than initially anticipated.

The 21-year-old damaged ankle ligaments back in September and was originally told he would miss around six weeks. But speaking to the Shields Gazette, Moyes says he is hopeful that Januzaj could return before next months international break after confirming he is "feeling much better." Januzaj is one of 9 first team squad members currently side-lined through injury, and with the Black Cats currently rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, they are desperate for bodies to help bolster their squad. Sunderland travel to West Ham this weekend as the only side in England, from the top five divisions, who are yet to win a league game.

Sunderland have been dealt another blow after a scan revealed Manchester United loanee Adnan Januzaj damaged ankle ligaments during the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace.

The 21-year-old was replaced with just five minutes remaining on Saturday but when the injury actually occurred isn’t evidently clear. Januzaj was on the receiving end of a heavy challenge in the first half, however, he managed to continue until Victor Anichebe was introduced as the game was drawing to a close. Januzaj will join long-term absentees Seb Larsson, Fabio Borini and Vito Mannone in the treatment room while his injury serves as another major setback for David Moyes who is still searching for his first competitive win. Wahbi Khazri is poised for recall having spent much of his season warming the bench.

David Moyes has been reunited with his third Manchester United player as Adnan Januzaj joins Paddy McNair and Donald Love at the Stadium of Light.

Januzaj broke into the United starting eleven briefly during Moyes' troubled tenure at Old Trafford and he will now look to re-start his career under Moyes at the Stadium of Light. After falling behind a number of younger players at United and failing to make the grade at Borussia Dortmund last season, Januzaj is in need of a place where he can get minutes and Sunderland should be that place. There is potential there but with Whabi Khazri in place Januzaj will be no better than a secondary creator upon his arrival.

Manchester United have announced that Adnan Januzaj's loan spell with Borussia Dortmund has been terminated.

With the Belgium international having failed to start a singe Bundesliga match on loan both clubs agreed that they weren't getting what they hoped for out of the deal. United were hoping that time out on loan would provide playing time. Januzaj will rejoin United and either fight for playing time there or look for another loan to a club where he would be more likely to play.

German club Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan.

Despite a few rumors around this move in the past couple of days, this is quite surprising to see. Januzaj started for Manchester United in week two and played well, scoring a game-winning goal against Aston Villa. Louis van Gaal apparently wasn't that impressed, and the belief must be that Januzaj will get more playing time and experience at Dortmund. Now in the Bundlesliga, Januzaj is obviously not an option in Fantasy Premier League games, but he could be an interesting choice next season if he remains with Manchester United. He will wear shirt No 9 at Dortmund.

Adnan Januzaj has been ruled out of Manchester United's Week 4 trip to the Liberty Stadium with a hip injury.

Januzaj was only marginally effective in the playing time that he has received so far this season. With Marouane Fellaini eligible after serving his three match ban and Ander Herrera looming on the bench, it could be that Januzaj was going to be rotated anyway. His hip injury removes all doubt as the Belgium international will have to wait until at least after the international break before finding out where he stands in Louis Van Gaal's midfield pecking order.

Adnan Januzaj scored the lone goal in Manchester United 1-0 win away at Aston Villa.

Januzaj opened up the scoring in the first half after a great pass from Juan Mata and the score never changed again. Manchester played a decent game but failed to be overly impressive, with the biggest issue being how bad Wayne Rooney played. Manchester now finish their two first matches with a total of two goals scored but they've got to be happy with the results as they have six points. Aston Villa looked poor in attack and may look to start Rudy Gestede in week three.

Sunderland have opened talks with Manchester United over a possible loan deal for Belgian forward Adnan Januzaj…

It is a further demonstration of intent from Dick Advocaat, which also suggests we can infer certain other key developments. First, Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has appeared in court this week defending child sex charges. Left-sided attacker Jeremain Lens has already been added to the squad, but Januzaj made his first – and so far biggest – impression patrolling the same left-flank. So the signs for Johnson’s future at the club are not good. It also indicates that Man United could finally be close to securing the services of Barcelona’s Pedro, which would limit Januzaj’s opportunities this season. On the plus side for the young Belgian, Sunderland has been a profitable place for the likes of Danny Welbeck, Jonny Evans and Tottenham’s Danny Rose to get their PL ‘wings’ and go onto better things.

Manchester United have agreed with PSV Eindhoven on a deal for forward/attacking midfielder Memphis Depay both clubs have reported.

With Manchester United struggling to score goals, Louis Van Gaal has started the summer transfer process early with the news that he has reached an agreement to bring Memphis Depay to Old Trafford for next season. Depay was one of the revelations of the 2014 World Cup under Van Gaal and a link to Manchester United has been rumored all season. The deal is contingent on the player passing a medical but there is no reason to expect that will stand in the way.

Injury problems are beginning to mount for Manchester United as Rafael [ribs] and Adnan Januzaj [ankle] picked up problems playing for the under-21s on Monday. However Louis van Gaal is hopeful that Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind will be available for this weekends’ trip to Goodison Park although Michael Carrick remains a doubt due a persistent calf problem.

The United development side took on Leicester but not all the news was bad as Robin van Persie continued his recovery from ankle ligament damage to play over an hour while defender Jonny Evans started for the first time since completing his 6-game ban. United sit just 1-point above their city rivals in third place following defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and Louis van Gaal will be keen to welcome back any of the quartet despite producing "Our best match of the season." A return for either Blind or Carrick is likely to release Wayne Rooney with the captain moving back into a more attacking role.

Adnan Januzaj became the second United - and Belgium - player to be struck down with a virus which has affected a number of Manchester United squad members to varying degrees.

Januzaj joins Marouane Fellaini on the sidelines and the pair will miss Sundays' trip to White Hart Lane as they struggle to shake off the effects of the 'Belgium Virus'. Januzaj has fell down the pecking order this season following a number of new arrivals - Angel di Maria / Radamel Falcao / Daley Blind - and despite a host of injuries to key personnel the youngster has been restricted to just four starts this campaign only completing 90 minutes twice. Januzaj may look for a loan move in 2015 to help continue his development and gain some valuable game time / experimence with Newcastle reportedly interested.

Juan Mata's fall from grace was called out by the thus-far ineffective Adnan Januzaj starting ahead of him in Manchester derby.

Adnan Januzaj has started three consecutive matches and been compelling in exactly none of them. With Ander Herrera apparently still not ready to return to the starting line-up and Juan Mata in equally poor form the Belgium international has featured regularly for Louis Van Gaal. Whether he can continue to hold his spot remains to be seen as he has failed to produce much of value as United have reverted to the poor form from earlier in the season with two points from their past three matches.

Adnan Januzaj got his second consecutive start for Manchester United but his status as a starter is likely due to more to injuries and suspensions than any broader trend.

Wayne Rooney was suspended and is now possibly injured. Falcao is injured again. Ander Herrera is still nursing a rib injury that only allowed him to play half of the match against West Brom in Week 8. All of these circumstances have conspired to give Adnan Januzaj another run in the line-up. Given his tepid performances over the past two weeks, it's hard to see him retaining his spot when his teammates are healthy but he's a worthy emergency starter in unique ownership formats as long as the injuries continue.

Adnan Januzaj got a start in the match against West Brom but didn't contribute a great deal.

It was a bit of a shock to see Januzaj's name on the team sheet given that Ander Herrera was also back and there is generally a glut of attacking players available to Louis Van Gaal. The Belgium international didn't do a great deal to endear himself to his new manager during the 2-2 draw. With Rooney back from suspension after the Chelsea match and Falcao presumably recovered from his international duties, it seems unlikely that Januzaj will get another start in the league soon.
