Adnan Januzaj looks set to head to Germany, with the latest reports suggesting that Borussia Dortmund are in advanced talks to sign the Manchester United midfielder on a season-long loan deal. The Belgian international became something of a peripheral figure during Louis van Gaal's first year at Old Trafford. After initially playing a key role during the disastrous reign of David Moyes, he was reduced to just 13 starts in all competitions last term amid constant speculation over a temporary move elsewhere.
Januzaj has returned to the first-team picture in the early stages of this season, however, starting in three of United's first four Premier League fixtures so far before missing the defeat to Swansea with a calf injury sustained during the Champions League play-off round second-leg victory over Club Brugge.
Van Gaal has previously stated that he would be willing to deploy the 20-year-old in an advanced role if necessary given a dearth of forward options behind Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez, although his apparent interest in securing a late deal for Anthony Martial of AS Monaco could once again reduce the player to a frustrating back-up role.
According to Sky Sports, Everton, Tottenham, Valencia and Marseille have all displayed an interest in signing Januzaj but it is Dortmund who appear to be heading the queue despite new manager Thomas Tuchel already boasting an enviable array of attacking talent including the likes of Marco Reus, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Dortmund have opened the new Bundesliga campaign with three consecutive victories and currently sit top of the table ahead of reigning champions Bayern Munich on goal difference following a 3-1 triumph over Hertha Berlin at Westfalenstadion. Any deal for Januzaj would have to be concluded before the German transfer window closes for business at 6pm on 31 August.
