Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is set for showdown discussions with young prospect Adnan Januzaj after the Belgian international expressed his concerns over his future at the Old Trafford club, as reported by the Daily Star.
A huge shift in playing style this summer, necessitated by Van Gaal’s change to his desired 3-5-2 formation, means that Januzaj has featured infrequently since the start of the season.
Januzaj, 19, is now thought to be concerned about his new position in the squad under Van Gaal, having made a huge impact last season. The young winger was one of few players to emerge from David Moyes’ time at the club with any credit at all.
Significant additions in the transfer market this summer have left Januzaj questioning his position in the side, especially after the addition of Angel Di Maria, who would almost certainly trump Januzaj to a starting place should Van Gaal pick a formation with wingers again.
Elsewhere, another five players have joined.
It is reported, however, that the player is set to be told of his position under the new boss in the coming days.
