Adnan Januzaj Plays David Moyes Bingo

Adnan Januzaj is just one move away from being able to shout ‘house’ on his David Moyes Bingo Card as his career trajectory continues to take a slightly coincidental one after he completed a move to Spanish top flight outfit Real Socidead.

The Belgian winger has played for Manchester United, Sunderland (on loan) and will ply his trade in La Liga next season, which when you compare it to the list of clubs that David Moyes has managed since leaving Preston North End makes for some interesting reading.

Moyes left Deepdale in 2002 and since then has managed Everton, failed at Manchester United and had forgettable stints in charge of both Real Sociedad and Sunderland therefore Adnan Januzaj just needs to end up at Goodison Park during his career and these two will have had a perfect symmetry throughout their respective careers.

What makes it even more interesting or should that be weirder is the fact that they have worked together at both Manchester United and Sunderland as it was Moyes that gave him his big break at Old Trafford during his ill fated time in charge of the Red Devils and also bought him to the Stadium Of Light last season for a loan spell that was curtailed by injury.

For Januazj it will be a chance to get his career back on track after so much initial promise after being used regularly by Moyes he was never held in the same esteem by Louis Van Gaal who was the next man to step into the Old Trafford after the sacking of the previous incumbent in 2014.

This was no more apparent than when the 22 year old was loaned out to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund for the 2015-16 season but was sent back with his tails in between his legs just halfway through the season with just a handful of appearances to his name.

Although he was used sparingly by Van Gaal after his short lived trip to Germany he was never a key feature of the squad and managed just 5 Premier League appearances in the second half of the 2015-16 campaign, at that point questions were being asked as to whether or not the Kosovo born player had a future at the club.

The answer to that was arguably not when he was loaned out to Sunderland at the start of the last season to once again work under David Moyes and that has now been confirmed with the move to the club which plays its home games at the Anoeta.

Real Sociedad finished sixth in La Liga last season and will compete in the Europa League group stage in 2017-18 and have paid just under £1om to acquire the services of Januzaj…..I wonder when that move to Everton will take place?
