Adnan Januzaj set for early Manchester United return as Borussia Dortmund agree to loan termination - reports

Belgian has endured a torrid spell in Germany since leaving on loan in the summer

Manchester United have reportedly asked Borussia Dortmund to release Adnan Januzaj from his season-long loan agreement as the Belgian continues to struggle in the Bundesliga.

According to The Times, the German club have agreed to the termination and the 20-year-old is destined to return to Manchester in the coming days.

The paperwork is not expected to take long and an official announcement is likely to be released tomorrow afternoon.

Januzaj has made just five appearances for Dortmund since agreeing to the loan in August. While his faltering form has been a disappointment to Old Trafford officials, his return is likely to be seen as a positive with United needing more numbers among their ranks.

Louis van Gaal, the Red Devils manager, has been criticised for allowing talents such as Javier Hernandez leave last summer while Januzaj’s return gives him another attacking player to choose from.

It is unclear, if the former Anderlecht winger does indeed return, whether or not he would be loaned out to another club.
