Adnan Januzaj has been one of United’s more impressive players on the pre-season tour so far. The 18-year-old knows United tend to send youngsters out on loan but he is hoping he can stay with the club next season and get some games for the first team.
“My target for the season is to try and get some games for the first team,” he said. “I have not spoken to the manager about it yet but I would prefer to do that rather than go out on loan. That is what I came here for. Everyone wants to play for Manchester United.”
Januzaj has explained that the language barrier caused some problems for him when he first joined the club but that his team mates, including new player/coach Ryan Giggs, have been a great help.
“For the first few months when I came here it was very hard,” said Januzaj. “But gradually my English started to improve. I could speak to other people and connect with them. Now I feel confident and happy to be with the players, and in particular Ryan Giggs. Every time I need to ask something I go to Giggs. He helps me quite a lot.”
