Remember Adnan Januzaj?
He seems like the a relic from a bygone era. It was a time when Manchester United were still at the pinnacle of English football, with the Belgian looking like becoming the latest star to emerge from the club's academy.
The tricky winger made his debut during David Moyes' sole season in charge, going on to prove to be one of the only bright spots of what was a disastrous campaign. While United limped to a seventh placed finish, it was hoped that Januzaj would be part of a new era for the club moving forward.

Of course, it didn't work out like that. By the end of the 2014/15 season, it became clear that the hype around the player was not justified. Following loan spells at Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland, he would leave Old Trafford on a permanent basis in 2017.
Since then, the player has been plying his trade at Real Sociedad. He has been a regular in La Liga, but has only scored 15 goals in the division over the last five seasons. He left the San Sebastien club at the end of last season and is currently a free agent.
Now, he could be set to return to the Premier League.
Adnan Januzaj linked with Premier League return
Spanish outlet AS are reporting that both West Ham Everton are interested in signing Adnan Januzaj this summer.
Frank Lampard could be in the market for a new winger before the end of the window, with Anthony Gordon heavily linked with a £60million move to Chelsea in recent times. As for Moyes, he knows the player well having worked with him at both Manchester United and Sunderland.
They are not the only clubs linked with the 27-year old, with LA Galaxy also said to have made enquiries in recent days.
Januzaj has clearly not lived up to his potential, although he could be seen as a cheap option for both English clubs before as a stopgap for this season.
Perhaps David Moyes could help him recapture some of that magic he first displayed under his management? It seems rather doubtful.
