Man United's Adnan Januzaj offered new chance after Dortmund woe

When the news came over that Manchester United had recalled Adnan Januzaj from his season-long loan at Borussia Dortmund, it didn't come as much of a surprise to most fans.

The Belgian forward managed a grand total of no league starts in his five months under Thomas Tuchel at Dortmund, spending a paltry total of just 165 minutes on the pitch spread across just six appearances.

Back at United with his stock at an all time low, many fans were left wondering just what Januzaj would do next in order to arrest the slump.

However, it didn't take long for the 20-year-old to be offered a lifeline from the fourth tier of German football, specifically a small club by the name of Rot Weiss Ahlen.

Directly underneath a link to news of Januzaj's loan termination posted by Sky Sports on their official German Facebook page, Rot Weiss piped up to ask United whether they would be interested in farming the winger out on loan to them for the remainder of the season.

As if to sweeten the deal, Rot Weiss made sure to mention that stints at their club "worked out really well for Reus and Grosskreutz," -- both of the aforementioned Bundesliga winners having spent several of their formative years playing there.

As yet United are still to respond. We'll keep you posted.
