It’s amazing to remember just how quickly the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern fell in love with a certain Belgian forward.
However reports fromr Hurriyet (via Turkish-Football.com) claiming giants Galatasaray are lining up a loan move for Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj have been met with merely shrugged shoulders.
Since emerging as a prodigious talent and as one of the few shining lights of the David Moyes era at Old Trafford, the 21-year old has seen his career stall.
Earlier this season, he saw a loan move to Borussia Dortmund fail to work out as hoped and he soon returned to the Theatre of Dreams.
Out of favour under Louis van Gaal, the future of the Belgian international forward is unclear now Jose Mourinho has arrived in the Dutchman’s stead.
With FFP regulations weighing down on the Turkish titans, they are reportedly aiming to draft the forward in on loan over the course of the summer in an effort to still improve their squad.
Having watched Besiktas win the domestic league, the club will be aiming to keep the pace with their Istanbul rivals while attempting to manage the financial uncertainty.
Can Mourinho get the best out of Januzaj? Or is he a lost cause?
