Adnan Januzaj is flying to German to finalise a loan move to Borussia Dortmund after the German club beat Valencia in the race to sign the Belgium global.
The winger, who can also operate as a “number 10”, had been linked with a loan switch to Sunderland, but Manchester United have chosen to send him to Germany to further his development.
There is nothing better than transfer deadline day drama, which is always just so amusing, shocking and surprising, that a football fan can always be rewarded with the unexpected.
Januzaj will most definitely improve as a player in Dortmund, as he can learn from the like of Marco Reus, Shinji Kagawa, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. He still has 3 years left in his deal with Manchester United.
Dortmund have been monitoring Januzaj for quite a while now and if reports from Sky Sports are to be believed, the Bundesliga side are currently in advanced talks to sign the young star. “I want to achieve great things with the team”, Januzaj told the club’s official website.
Louis van Gaal is keen to bolster his attacking options after yesterday’s departures of Javier Hernandez and Adnan Januzaj to Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund, respectively. “That’s not true in my opinion” said Van Gaal.
Actually, United has only scored two, as their first goal was credited a Tottenham Hotspur “own goal”.
The Danish goalkeeper signed in January 2011 and went on to make 29 first-team appearances but found opportunities limited in recent seasons. Once the season is complete for both squads, the true victor in this loan deal will emerge and the belief is that Dortmund will be the ones celebrating success.
