Man Utd due windfall from Januzaj Roma move

Manchester United are due a tidy windfall from Real Sociedad's potential sale of Adnan Januzaj to AS Roma.

Recent reports have linked the 24-year-old with a switch to Serie A, with the Italian club said to be willing to pay around £15.2m for the player.

The Sun says as part of a clause in the deal which saw Januzaj move to Sociedad, United could therefore receive a fee of about £4.5m as a result of the transfer.

United fans will no doubt be hoping this money is reinvested in a new player, with the out-of-form team still yet to invest in a signing so far this month.

Roma are currently fourth in Serie A, and are desperately looking for a replacement for key player Nicolo Zaniolo, who is out for the rest of the season after tearing his crucial ligament and meniscus.
