Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has appeared to endorse the club's pursuit of Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Manchester Evening News have reported that, despite Januzaj's own future being in doubt at Old Trafford, the midfielder has liked a photoshopped picture of himself and Mkhitaryan alongside the United crest on Instagram.
Januzaj and Mkhitaryan, of course, played alongside each other at Borussia Dortmund last season, where the former failed to make an impact during a loan spell.

But, if reports are to be believed, the duo could be reunited at the Theatre of Dreams ahead of the new season.
Mkhitaryan would certainly represent quite the coup for new United manager Jose Mourinho, who has only secured the services of Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly in this transfer window.
It could be suggested that the addition of Mkhitaryan would only make things harder for Januzaj in Manchester, but it appears that the youngster would like the Dortmund man to join him in England.
Mkhitaryan's agent, Mino Raiola, has already insisted that he will continue to negotiate the transfer and won't give up at this stage.
He stated: "Henrikh is not the type to have conflicts, he leaves that to me. We will not give up!
"We have both taken very different views and fight for them like lions. (Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim) Watzke walks 180 degrees into one direction and I 180 degrees into the other. But even though it does not look like it right now, I still hope for a sensible solution.
"Such an offer to join Manchester United might only come once in a lifetime for a player and nobody can guarantee us that the door will still be open for Micki next season. Manchester are Micki’s dream club, he wants to join them by any means."
