Mourinho set to make surprise 9.8m signing of Winger

     Adnan Januzaj is back. The 22-year-old winger is shining at Real Sociedad after a tough start to his Spanish adventure. Though his two last campaigns at Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland were disappointing, fans at the San Sebastian have put all their hopes in the Kosovo-born player when they paid €11m in the summer, reports IBT Times.

When he was beginning to understand manager Eusebio Sacristan's tactics, he suffered a knee injury and he missed the 4-4 draw with Real Betis. But now, he is on fire. He has provided two assists in the last two games against Espanyol and Getafe and he is starting to replace Carlos Vela - who will leave the club in January in order to play for Los Ángeles in Major League Soccer - as the idol of Sociedad fans.

The nutmeg against Espanyol which led to the superb assist for Asier Illarramendi, to net the equaliser was a particular stand-out moment. On Sunday [29 October], against Getafe, Januzaj provided another magical assist for Mikel Oyarzabal inside the first five minutes.

Januzaj was among those withdrawn in the second half with Eusebio having one eye on the Europa League. And in the Belgium international's absence - as Sociedad started to lose control of the game - Getafe completed a late comeback to prevail 2-1.
