Transfer Rumours

LVG blocks youngster move

Adnan Januzaj 2014Adnan Januzaj will not leave Manchester United on loan or on a permanent basis this month, after Louis Van Gaal blocked PSG’s attempt to lure the Belgian away from Old Trafford.

Arguably the only positive of David Moyes’ disastrous tenure, Januzaj has started just five games in all competitions this season but Van Gaal has made clear he has no intentions to part way with the 19-year-old.

Januzaj, who played the full 90 minutes against Cambridge on Friday night, has reportedly grown frustrated at the lack of opportunities and has attracted interest from PSG, who had tried to sign the Belgian last season before he put pen to paper on a five-year deal with United.

“Yes, PSG have shown themselves to be interested this winter,”Dirk De Vriese, Januzaj’s agent, told French website Foot Mercato. “They directly contacted Manchester United for information.

“But Louis van Gaal announced that he [Januzaj] cannot leave this winter. Not as a permanent transfer nor as a loan.

“The coach considered him as an important player for squad. He is counting on everyone.

“It seems like a definitive decision, I don’t think that it can change.”
