The Independent understands that Adnan Januzaj would favour a move abroad ahead of the new season.
The Belgium international has been omitted from Jose Mourinho’s first team squad and has been linked with a loan move to Sunderland, where he would be reuinted with the man who handed him his debut for United – David Moyes.
However, the twenty-one year old is in no rush to secure a switch to the Stadium of Light, and is considering options elsewhere with two years remaining on his current contract.
Januzaj has racked up sixty-three appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils, scoring five goals – two of which came on his debut, incidentally against Sunderland while he has played six times for Belgium.
He spent last season on loan with Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund but only made twelve appearances for them before being recalled by then manager Louis van Gaal.
