Adnan Januzaj is almost certainly on his way out of Manchester United this summer.
Two seasons of inconsistency and a lack of first team football under Louis van Gaal has blighted what looked set to be a very exciting career for Januzaj after bursting onto the scene three years ago.
There is no sign of the Belgian being given any more playing time under Jose Mourinho and the 21-year-old has now made a very big decision on his future.

The Daily Mail have reported that Januzaj was amongst a number of United's fringe players to hold meetings with Mourinho on Thursday and was told he was being made available to spend the upcoming campaign on loan elsewhere.
However, the ex-Borussia Dortmund loanee has come to the conclusion that his career at Old Trafford has come to an end and he would like to leave on a permanent deal.
Despite his disappointing form over the last two seasons, there is likely to be no shortage of clubs interested in signing Januzaj and all will be hoping they can unlock the potential David Moyes unearthed during his brief tenure as Man United manager.
The winger scored twice on his debut for the Red Devils against Sunderland in 2013 and the Black Cats have been one of the teams heavily linked with a possible move.
Reports in Italy earlier today suggested AC Milan are considering an offer while Ajax, Everton and even Paris Saint-Germain could also pounce for the 21-year-old.
The 2015/16 campaign started brightly for Januzaj when he scored the winner against Aston Villa in just the second game of the season, but once he lost the faith of Van Gaal there was no easy road back into the first team.
If, as expected, Januzaj does depart Old Trafford this summer, the last of his 66 competitive appearances for the Red Devils will prove to be a three-minute cameo display against West Ham back in May.
