Manchester United star Januzaj wanted by Turkey - Terim

Manchester United teenager Adnan Januzaj is a target for Turkey as his future at international remains anything but clear, with the manager of the national team Fatih Terim confirming his interest in the midfielder.

Januzaj’s performances for Manchester United this season have prompted a flurry of countries to register their intention to persuade the player to pledge his allegiance to them, with the 19-year-old eligible for Albania, Kosovo, Belgium, Serbia and Turkey. He could also become eligible for England through residency.

Belgium have tried to call-up Januzaj, Kosovo want him and Roy Hodgson has confirmed the Manchester United youngster has been on his radar. And now Terim says Turkey are actively “trying to get” Januzaj.

Januzaj was born in Belgium, his dad was born in Kosovo - although they are yet to be recognised by FIFA - his grandparents are Turkish, while he is of Albanian heritage. Which country Januzaj will chose remains anyone’s guess.

Meanwhile, Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed he is deliberately trying to reduce Januzaj’s workload, given the number of games he has played during his maiden campaign in the club’s first-team.

Januzaj has made 22 appearances in the Premier League this term, scoring three goals and providing two assists, while his displays earned him a lucrative new long-term contract.
