Manchester United rumours
The Toffees are big admirers of the 20-year-old, who first became a regular at Old Trafford under David Moyes last season but who has found first-team opportunities more limited this season since Louis van Gaal took over at the club.
Big-name signings such as Angel Di Maria have blocked Januzaj’s path to the starting lineup this term, and it could now be that Everton will try to take advantage of his situation at United.
Roberto Martinez has shown ambition in the transfer market in the past by breaking the club’s transfer record to sign Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea last summer, and Januzaj’s arrival would signal another exciting move by the Merseyside outfit.
It remains to be seen if United would consider selling this exciting prospect, but the Manchester Evening News claims Everton are still keen to bring him to Goodison Park.
