Southampton and Brighton are interested in signing former Manchester United star Adnan Januzaj, according to reports.

Januzaj made the move to Man Utd from Belgium side Anderlecht when he was 16 years old. He made his league debut for United in September 2013 against Crystal Palace.

He went onto make 27 appearances for them in the league that season. The attacker got four goals and four assists as United finished seventh in the season David Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson as manager.

But he fell down the pecking order after the 2013/14 season. He only made 23 league appearances for them in their next two campaigns.

The winger spent a season on loan with their Premier League rivals Sunderland in 2016/17 before leaving United permanently in the following summer.

Januzaj joined Real Sociedad ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. He has made 90 appearances for the Spanish side in all competitions since then.

But the midfielder has only made two La Liga starts for Sociedad so far this season. With him seemingly falling out of favour with them, this has fuelled talk that he could soon depart the Spanish outfit.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, as cited by Sport Witness, Southampton and Brighton are both tracking Januzaj ahead of the January transfer window.

AC Milan and Roma were keen to sign him on loan last January, but a move never came to fruition. Januzaj has a release clause of €60m, but the club would demand a fee of around €25m to sell their man.
