Manchester United have reportedly offered winger Adnan Januzaj on loan to Portuguese club Porto for the remainder of the season.

According to A Bola, the young Belgian winger could move to Portugal for the rest of the season, as he has struggled to get regular game time under new manager Louis van Gaal.

The Dutch manager is believed to have made it clear to United chief executive Ed Woodward that Januzaj does not feature in his plans for this season and that he is willing to let him go on loan.

The Belgian international had a breakthrough season under former manager David Moyes last season, when he started 19 games for the club and came on as a substitute in a further 17 matches. In contrast, this season he has just started four games in all competitions and is yet to score a goal for the club.

This has raised speculation regarding a move away from the club with Januzaj strongly linked with a reunion with Moyes at La Liga club Real Sociedad. But the former United boss has denied rumours of a temporary switch while praising the midfielder's abilities.

"I've read about it but I don't know where it has come from. It hasn't come from me," Moyes said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"He's a wonderful player gifted with great balance and the ability to go past people with little ease. When I see his poise on the ball he has characteristics of Johan Cruyff," the former Everton boss added.

There are no shortage of clubs willing to take the youngster on loan for the rest of the season, with the latest report linking him to a move to Portuguese giants Porto.

Porto manager Julen Lopetegui has refused to deny reports suggesting Januzaj's imminent arrival on loan, but said his main focus was on the game against Penafiel at the weekend.

"I'm not saying it's true or not. I'm just concentrating on the game with Penafiel. That's what I'm thinking," Lopetegui said, as quoted by A Bola.
