Adnan Januzaj has completed his move from Manchester United to Real Sociedad for a reported initial fee of £8m, signing a five-year contract.

The Belgium international arrived at the Old Trafford outfit from Anderlecht at a tender age of 16, and made his first team debut for the English club in the FA Community Shield game against Wigan Athletic in August 2013.

However, despite impressing everyone in his debut season under former United and Sociedad boss David Moyes, and inheriting Ryan Giggs’ famous number 11 shirt, the talented winger failed to impress both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho in the following campaigns.

And now, following failed loan spells with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund as well as the relegated Sunderland, the 22-year-old has decided to leave Manchester United on a permanent basis, and revive his career with Real Sociedad.

Upon the confirmation of the transfer, the young midfielder posted the following heartfelt farewell message on his official twitter account:
