Published Add your comment

Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj is ready to choose England as his national team as long as the Football Association overcomes the five-year residency rule, according to the Mail Online

England boss Roy Hodgson recently revealed that the Three Lions were keen on securing the services of the 18-year-old. 

The Red Devils winger, who has taken the Premier League by storm, is eligible to play for up to five countries.

And, it's now been revealed that the Belgian-born youngster would opt to represent England, however FA chairman Greg Dyke may have to look at challenging current residency rules. 

However, the first option for the FA will be to begin an application for a British passport for the starlet. 

Under the current rules, Januzaj will have to wait another three years to play for England, so Dyke will be desperate to find a way of bringing this forward. 

The proposal of Januzaj playing for England has sparked great debate, however the youngster remains one of the most highly sought after players in world football.
