Man United winger set to hold showdown talks with Jose Mourinho – report

Adnan Januzaj is reportedly ready to leave Manchester United if he is not part of Jose Mourinho's plans

Adnan Januzaj is preparing to tell Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave Manchester United if he is not part of his first-team plans next season, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Belgian winger will seek showdown talks with the newly-appointed United boss this week as the Red Devils return for pre-season training.

Januzaj was loaned out to Borussia Dortmund for last season but was recalled back to Old Trafford in January after a difficult spell in Germany.

The same newspaper story goes on to say that Januzaj does not want to be sent out on loan for a second season and would prefer a permanent transfer away from Old Trafford if he is not part of Mourinho’s plans.

Mourinho is currently preparing to take charge of United’s pre-season preparations as the Portuguese coach gets ready for life at Old Trafford.

United opted to sack Louis van Gaal last season after their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League.
