Sunderland today confirmed that they’d secured a loan deal for Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj, with the young Belgian set to be reunited with the man who gave him his Old Trafford debut, David Moyes.
After scoring on his debut two seasons ago, big things were expected of Januzaj, but he’s failed to properly break into the first team since those heady days, and his loan move to Borussia Dortmund brought his stock even lower.
Mourinho wants him back
He now has the chance to reinvigorate himself at Sunderland, and will be given ample chance to prove himself by David Moyes, who rates him very highly.
Mourinho clearly does too, and made clear today that the idea is to bring Januzaj back to Old Trafford after the loan.
