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. Aug 31 - 1:57 PM

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.

Adnan Januzaj has ended speculation by committing his international playing future to Belgium. It remains to be seen if he will make the Belgian team for Brazil 2014.

A man without a country, or with many countries depending on how you look at it, Adnan Januzaj has decided to play his international football for Belgium. The young midfielder has had moments of brilliance for Manchester United this season and the general consensus is that he has a very bright future in front of him. What is less clear is whether that future includes a trip to Brazil with the Belgian team this summer. The team is loaded with talent and Januzaj has angered some in Belgium with his previous responses to offers to play for the team. There is also the fact that Januzaj has played a modest amount of first team football this season despite Manchester United's struggles. This will be an interesting one to watch in the build-up to the World Cup.

The arrival of Juan Mata has apparently relegated promising young midfielder Adnan Januzaj to the bench.

Adnan Januzaj has been one of Manchester United's better attacking players over the past two months but the arrival of Juan Mata has apparently pushed him down to a reserve role. With only a mop-up role against Cardiff in mid-week and nothing on Saturday, Januzaj will be wondering whether he will have a significant role over the balance of the season. It is shocking that Moyes has seen fit to start Ashley Young over Januzaj based on the evidence seen thus far in 2013-14. Young did score against Cardiff but overall, his performances have been mediocre-at-best.

Adnan Januzaj has been one of the few bright spots for Manchester United but for fantasy managers, he's still just off the pace.

Other than Week 7 when he scored a brace for the Red Devils, Adnan Januzaj has been more hype than results for fantasy managers. His Week 17 performance was the perfect example of how he is falling short while still showing great promise. Januzaj scored the match winner but did virtually nothing else that leads to positive fantasy points. His goal came on his only shot on target and on top of doing little else positive, he was shown a yellow card for a pointless dive nearer to midfield than anywhere the resulting free kick could have done exceptional damage. Januzaj is certainly a young talent who has the potential to be a star but for now, he is definitely in the second or third tier of fantasy midfielders rather than the top tier.

18-year old Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj hopes to play his entire career at Old Trafford.

In a recent interview with Manchester United TV online, youngster Adnan Januzaj had this to say - "If I could play all my life at Manchester United I would do it for the club." Adnan signed a 5-year contract with United back in October that will keep him with the Red Devils until 2018. He's appeared in nine of the teams' 12 games since Week 3 and has two goals and two assists to his credit already.

Adnan Januzaj started for Manchester United in the League Cup on Tuesday and played 90+ minutes putting into question his starting spot in the league on Saturday.

David Moyes' line-up selection and rotation policies have been mystifying since his arrival at Manchester United. Whether it has been the frequent starting of Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand or the lack of playing time for Wilfried Zaha while other United wingers struggle, the logic isn't clear. Januzaj was a difference-maker against Stoke after his introduction but after his start in the League Cup one wonders if he'll be tapped against Fulham. As you look at your fantasy options, there is certainly risk in this selection.
