Januzaj, 25, burst onto the scene in 2013 after making his first competitive start for former club United and scoring two goals to complete a 2-1 comeback against Sunderland.

However, the attacker failed to recapture his debuting form and eventually ended up leaving United two-years later to join Borussia Dortmund and later Sunderland on loan.

From the North East, Januzaj went to ply his trade in La Liga after he joined Real Sociedad for £7.65m in 2017, as per Transfermarkt.

However, after falling out-of-favour with manager Imanol Alguacil, the 25-year-old could be set for a shock return back to his old stomping ground.

According to a recent report from Belgian publication HLN (via Metro), Januzaj has emerged as a target for South Coast duo Brighton and Hove Albion and Southampton.

The report claims that despite Januzaj having a whopping £54m minimum release clause in his current contract a deal for around £25m could potentially be reached.

However, the report also acknowledges that Real Sociedad may still wish to keep their 25-year-old winger as a squad option after recently turning down loan offers from Serie A giants AS Roma and AC Milan.
