Januzaj has been linked with loan moves to Everton and Sunderland this summer.
Although van Gaal didn’t rule out a short-term deal, he rubbished suggestions the player will be sold.
Januzaj will be grateful to hear van Gaal’s comments as he looks to establish himself in the first-team.
When asked about Januzaj’s availability, van Gaal replied: “Not for sale. He is doing his utmost best. All the players are. I have no complaints.”
Earlier on Thursday, Januzaj had laughed off the ‘rumours’ through a post on his official Twitter account.
Van Gaal’s comments don’t really reveal his thoughts on a loan but it is good to see that Januzaj is still very much a part of United’s plans in the long-term. He has bags of potential and still has plenty of time to realise it.
