And Januzaj has revealed that he hopes to line up against the France international at Old Trafford for Mourinho’s men next season.

Speaking in an interview with The Sun, Januzaj said: “Paul is a great player. He made a different choice but eventually he was successful and he has returned. He remains a great player.

“He’s a very good friend. At United, we were always together. We went to dinner together, played the PlayStation. He was a brother to me.

“Of course, Paul asks if I’ll be back at Manchester United. He wants to play with me. But I am now at Sunderland and I have to do what’s right for the club.
