Man United transfers: Dortmund rule out Adnan Januzaj return

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc says Adnan Januzaj won't return to parent club Man United

Adnan Januzaj won’t cut his loan move short and return to Manchester United, according to Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director.

The Belgium international has struggled to break into Dortmund’s first-team following his season-long loan move to the Bundesliga side in August.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are currently second in the German top-flight and Dortmund are also flying high in the Europa League.

However, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insisted Januzaj won’t be returning to United, adding the youngster has been unfortunate due to the “incredible” form of his team-mates.

“That’s currently not an issue,” Zorc told Kicker.

“We play an extraordinary season, and the others do an incredible job. There is no reason to bench them.”

Januzaj has made five substitute appearances for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season.

Dortmund are in second place and five points behind defending German champions Bayern Munich.

The 20-year-old has started two of Dortmund’s four Europa League games this term.

The Belgium starlet scored United’s winner in a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park in August before he joined Dortmund on loan.
