Fee agreed: Jose Mourinho decides to sell Man Utd attacker
Manchester United have reportedly agreed a fee with Real Sociedad to sell them out-of-favour winger Adnan Januzaj in a £9.7million transfer this summer.
The Belgium international’s career has spiralled downwards in the last couple of seasons, and he is no longer in United’s first-team plans as he looks set to depart on the cheap.
Januzaj has just a year to run on his current contract at Old Trafford, and Jose Mourinho seems to have decided to cash in on him now, with a number of clubs linked with him recently.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Sunderland under former United boss David Moyes but failed to make an impact, and also previously struggled during a temporary move to Borussia Dortmund.
Roma were also linked with him this summer, but France Football claim a fee has been agreed for him to link up with La Liga side Sociedad.
Januzaj will hope he can gain the regular first-team football he needs to get his career back on track after a difficult few years following such a promising start at United in the 2013/14 season.
The Red Devils youngster played 35 times that season, but has only gone on to make a further 28 appearances in a red shirt after failing to live up to his potential.
Januzaj is now expected to discuss personal terms and wages with Real Sociedad, while United have also pressed for a buy-back clause to be included in the deal.
