Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj wants to leave the club permanently this month, according to the BBC.
The report claims Januzaj is disappointed with the way he’s been treated by the club since Mourinho’s arrival.
The 21-year-old, who’s been linked with a loan move to Sunderland in recent weeks, is also believed to be attracting the attention of clubs in Spain and Italy.
Januzaj was left out of the group for the Community Shield win over Leicester City last Sunday and has been instructed to train with the reserves, which basically confirms he’s not part of Jose Mourinho’s plans.
United are believed to be ready to sanction a season-long loan move for Januzaj as they don’t want to lose another youngster on the cheap, but it seems like Januzaj has different plans and wants to leave for good.
Januzaj enjoyed a tremendous breakthrough season 3 years ago, but failed to establish himself in Louis Van Gaal’s team during the past two seasons.
It appears as though Januzaj has failed to convince Jose Mourinho during United’s pre-season preparations and the Belgian now looks set to depart Old Trafford.
United are reportedly reluctant to sell Januzaj this summer, but if a good offer arrives, maybe they’d agree to sanction his sale as he’s well down the pecking order.
Januzaj desperately needs regular first-team football, but it’d be better for the club if his departure isn’t permanent.
