Manchester United have received a £9.7m bid from Real Sociedad for Adnan Januzaj, Sky sources.

The Spanish club's offer is one of a number that United are thought to be considering for the 22-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland.

Januzaj vowed to prove his doubters wrong after moving to Wearside last summer but struggled with injury, making just 18 Premier League starts, and is no longer wanted at Old Trafford.

The Belgian was handed his United debut by David Moyes, who managed Real Sociedad after being sacked, but Januzaj was sent out on loan to Borussia Dortmund by Moyes' successor Louis van Gaal.

Januzaj did not start a Bundesliga game, however, and was made available again by Jose Mourinho last summer.
