Januzaj Set To Join Sunderland On Loan

Adnan Januzaj is close to joining Sunderland on a season-long loan after being left “humiliated” by Jose Mourinho’s decision to axe him from Manchester United’s first-team squad.

Januzaj has been told he is not a vital part of Mourinho's plans this season.

Moyes is also on the verge of signing two more players from his former club as Mourinho starts to clear the decks at United in the wake of his £145 million outlay on four new signings, which includes a world-record £89 million deal for France midfielder Paul Pogba.

Paddy McNair, the Northern Ireland defender-cum-midfielder, and defender Donald Love, another player given his United first-team debut by Mourinho’s predecessor, Louis van Gaal, underwent medicals at Sunderland on Wednesday and are expected to sign four-year deals.

Januzaj has been training with United’s reserve team since being told by Mourinho a fortnight ago that he would not be part of his plans for this season. He did not take kindly to the news and feels he should have been shown more respect after 63 first-team appearances.

There is still a belief among the hierarchy that Januzaj could deliver on the potential he showed under Moyes. But United believe he will benefit from a full season playing in the Premier League after a calamitous loan spell at Borussia Dortmund last term.
