Sociedad close in on Januzaj

Real Sociedad are reportedly close to completing a deal to sign Adnan Januzaj from Manchester United.

The 22-year-old Belgium international, once the jewel of United’s youth team, spent last season on loan at now-relegated Sunderland, where he was unable to find the net in 25 Premier League appearances.

La Real president Jokin Aperribay admitted earlier this week that they were chasing the winger, and France Football now report that a deal is imminent.

"It's true that we are interested but we are not in talks with Manchester or with him," Aperribay had previously told El Mundo Deportivo. 

"We are waiting for the decision of Manchester United and then we will act. There are more teams interested in him and his signing won't be easy."
