Louis van Gaal refused to sell or loan Adnan Januzaj to PSG: Agent
Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj’s agent revealed that French giants Paris-Saint Germain were keen on buying the 19-year-old Belgian, but manager Louis van Gaal declined to let the player leave. There were earlier reports of Januzaj moving to Parc des Princes on loan, but now it seems like Old Trafford will remain his home.
He had signed a five-year contract with the Red Devils in October 2013 and was a popular starter under former manager David Moyes. However, the winger has played in only 13 games for the Red Devils this season with most of them coming from the bench.
"Yes, PSG have shown themselves to be interested this winter,” his agent told French website Foot Mercato.
"They directly contacted Manchester United for information,” he added.
Van Gaal felt Januzaj was an important player for his side: Agent
He further said that Van Gaal considered Januzaj a key player for his side and added that he had pinned his hopes on each and every player to deliver.
"But Louis van Gaal announced that [Januzaj] cannot leave this winter. Not as a permanent transfer nor as a loan.
"The coach considered him as an important player for squad. He is counting on everyone. It seems like a definitive decision, I don't think that it can change," he concluded.
