Since Jose Mourinho took over at Manchester United, there has been a lot of talk about who is he going to sign.

Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have already been confirmed while it seems as though it’s just a matter of time before Henrikh Mkhitaryan also arrives.

Then, there’s Paul Pogba - who United have been heavily linked with over the past few weeks.

But where there are comings, there have also got to be goings.

But, one player he won’t get to make that decision with is Adnan Januzaj. That’s because The Sun are reporting that the 21-year-old will tell his new manager that he wants to leave the club on a permanent basis this summer.

Januzaj's refusal

The youngster has failed to fulfil his early promise at the Theatre of Dreams and was sent out on loan to Borussia Dortmund last campaign. However, after making just six league appearances, the Belgian was recalled in January and he now refuses to go out on-loan again.

With Mkhitaryan set to arrive, Januzaj’s playing time appears as though it will even more limited next term and The Sun claims a source told them: “It seems like Adnan is way down the first-team playing order now, but he is really well liked by Jose who rates him highly.”


Mourinho is a fan

With Mourinho being a fan of Januzaj, he planned on sending him out on loan to a Premier League club where he would be able to play consistently to gain some valuable experience. The Portuguese boss also wanted to include a clause that would enable him to be recalled if things weren’t going to plan.

But Januzaj and his representatives will discuss his future this next with the new manager in crunch talks. During the discussions, it’s believed that the player will announce his desire to leave. Mourinho will then have to prove just how highly he rates Januzaj as he has to convince him to remain at the club.
