It's official, folks. Under Louis van Gaal, Adnan Januzaj is going nowhere! Er, in the literal, will-not-be-transferred sense, not the metaphorical, stuck-on-the-bench-watching-his-talent-waste-away sense. Sorry. Should have been clearer. Let's try that again shall we?

Adnan Januzaj has no prospects under Louis van Gaal! Um, that is, of a January move. That didn't really help either, did it? Anyway, while we try to sort this out, point your eyes at these quotes from (somebody the Telegraph says is) his agent, on a possible move:

Yes, PSG have shown themselves to be interested this winter. They directly contacted Manchester United for information. But Louis van Gaal announced that he [Januzaj] cannot leave this winter. Not as a permanent transfer nor as a loan.

The coach considered him as an important player for squad. He is counting on everyone. It seems like a definitive decision, I don't think that it can change.

So that's that, and we can all relax. Louis van Gaal is definitely holding Adnan Januzaj back! Oh. Oh dear. This writing is a tricky business, isn't it?
