The Belgium international rose to prominence during David Moyes’s brief stay in the Old Trafford hotseat, where he was a rare ray of light during a tricky campaign.
However, he struggled to find playing minutes under Louis van Gaal last season, and had been tipped to leave the club this summer.
Speaking after United’s 1-0 away victory over Aston Villa on Friday evening, the attacker has confirmed that he is not looking to leave the Red Devils and is keen to establish himself with the title hopefuls.
“It was only rumours,” the youngster began, speaking to Sky Sports after the match, in which he scored the winner, addressing the speculation linking him with a move elsewhere.
“I am happy here and I will play for my place.
“I haven’t had a game for a long time so my fitness is not so good but I’m happy to score for the team and the winner.
“I hope to have more games in my legs and hopefully score more goals.”
Januzaj was handed a surprise start in the No. 10 role as van Gaal dropped Ashley Young, and despite the imminent rumoured arrival of Brazil forward Pedro [El Confidencial via Daily Star], he may yet find himself playing a crucial role for the north-west giants this term.
Last season, the forward managed 18 appearances, of which only seven outings were starts, but it looks as though Januzaj can expect to make many more showings this term.
