Manchester United wonderkid Adnan Januzaj will endeavour to sort out his club future before deciding upon which international side he intends to pledge his allegiance to, according to talkSPORT.

18-year-old Januzaj, who joined the Red Devils from Belgian giants Anderlecht in 2011, has impressed this season since being brought into the first-team fold by new manager David Moyes.

The starlet further endeared himself to the club's fans last Saturday by notching a majestic second-half double that saw United bounce back from an early setback to record a morale-boosting 2-1 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Despite his encouraging performances, however, it is his off the pitch issues that is causing such a relentless media buzz around the youngster at present.

With talks over a contract extension having reportedly stalled following the departure of managerial behemoth Sir Alex Ferguson after the climax of United's title-winning 2012/13 campaign, Januzaj's current deal expires at the end of the season and Catalan giants Barcelona have already been linked with his signature.

In addition, the player faces an agonising choice over his international future. Although Belgian-born, Januzaj is also eligible for Albania, Serbia and Turkey and there has even been talk in the past week of Roy Hodgson's England making initial enquiries into the possibility of him turning out for the Three Lions.

However, according to talkSPORT, Januzaj is apparently relaxed about his international predicament and will not make that decision until he and his representatives are successfully able to sort out his immediate club future.
