Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj has been the main talking point in world football in the past few weeks.

But the question on everybody's minds is: will he play for England?

Ever since England manager Roy Hodgson confirmed his interest on Januzaj's availability for England, there has been many debates on whether he should play for the Three Lions.

Many newspapers have broadcasted their views on the topic, even England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere had his opinion on the matter.

Although he was born in the Belgian capital of Brussels, Januzaj is eligible to play for a staggering five countries; Belgium, Croatia, Albania, Turkey and Kosovo.

It isn't clear which national side young Januzaj will decide to play for. Whatever he decides will be heavily broadcast in the press.

Due to grounds of residency rule, Adnan Januzaj could play for England by 2018, meaning he could play for England in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. But, what does this mean for the young English talent coming through the youth ranks?

Many of the young talent coming through the English youth system could be pushed out to accommodate Januzaj. And those players being possibly pushed out could voice their concerns about losing their England place to a player that was not born in England.

Mentioned earlier, Jack Wilshere was quick off the blocks to show his annoyance at the possibility of Januzaj playing for England. He believes that only English players should play for England. The press and public have been divided by these comments.

What are your views on the subject? Would you like to see Adnan Januzaj play in an England shirt?
