Manchester United fans may have been a little bit disappointed with their showing in the transfer market this summer, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
All the talk may have been about former Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini joining the club, but it is another Belgian talent that has been stealing all the headlines at the moment.
Adnan Januzaj is of Kosavan/Albanian descent and is so good that the Belgian FA are even reportedly aiming to take him to the World Cup in 2014. If that does not give an indication of just how good he is, the fact that Manchester United are about to offer him a new bumper contract to keep him at the club should.
After being named the man of the match during Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial, fans really began to sit up and take notice of the young winger.
He also provided the assist for the one goal scored by United during that game. One of our punters notes over his pie and gravy that youth seems to be the name of the game at the club these days.
With Nick Powell also one for the future, young Januzaj is growing with a team that has bags of potential. David Moyes is so keen on the player that he will not allow him to go out on loan. Instead he plans on keeping him and allowing him to feature in the first team.
With the fact that he may well become a future regular for the Old Trafford side, here is a look at five things you may not have known about the Belgian starlet.
