Manchester United insert clause into deal for outbound star

First option

Manchester United have ensured they make no mistakes over the future of Adnan Januzaj by inserting a clause into his deal with Real Sociedad.

The Belgian is set to move to the Spanish club in the coming days having had an unsuccessful loan spell with David Moyes’ Sunderland.

Though, the 22-year-old is seemingly still rated by some at Old Trafford, hence the inclusion of a clause that gives them first refusal on a sale.

It is said that a deal from Manchester United to Real Sociedad could be completed by tomorrow with the Spaniard’s hopeful of sealing the deal.

Following the Romelu Lukaku saga with Chelsea, Manchester United are ensuring they don’t make the same mistakes.

Lukaku, who has now joined United in what could be a world-record move, cost Everton £28m in 2014 after an initial loan spell.

Chelsea failed to include any clause in his contract, most notably a buy-back clause after Jose Mourinho advised otherwise.

Odds slash on Spurs star to United

Manchester United are now starting to get themselves out of second gear in the transfer market.

The Red Devils started slowly but the arrival of Romelu Lukaku has given them a second wind.

Now, they have their sights seemingly set on one Tottenham star.
