Trouble for Mourinho: Furious United star keen to leave club this summer

Adnan Januzaj is reportedly furious with the treatment he is receiving from Manchester United’s new manager Jose Mourinho and is desperate to leave the club this summer.

The United winger has been demoted to the reserves team by Mourinho and the Mirror reports  Januzaj is now all set for a season-long loan move to Sunderland.

The Belgian worked under new Black Cats boss David Moyes when he was in charge at Old Trafford and it is believed the 21-year-old feels ‘humiliated’ by Mourinho.

It is also claimed the Belgian is annoyed being sent out on loan rather than sold permanently to the club with Januzaj preferring a move to Serie A or La Liga.

United, however, want Januzaj to link up with Moyes at Sunderland with the Scotsman the manager who gave the winger his break in 2013.

Januzaj has made 63 first-team appearances for United, but could only manage 17 minutes of competitive action with the Red Devils when he returned early from a loan spell with Borussia Dortmund in January.

The Belgium international is said to be angry that he was not given more time to impress Mourinho in pre-season and is reportedly refusing to change with the reserves.

After the recent treatment of Bastian Schweinsteiger has caused several football names to speak out loud, it now looks Januzaj is also finding it difficult to see eye-to-eye with the Portuguese boss.

It is believed that the Red Devils will let the 21-year-old leave, with the Mirror stating that United value him around £20million.

United have roped in Henrikh Mkhitaryan in attacking midfield this summer, which means Januzaj’s chances of regular playing time could be even slimmer.

Meanwhile, Mourinho appeared to have confirmed that Januzaj has no future at old Trafford as the Portuguese boss overlooked him for the 5-2 pre-season victory over Galatasaray.

After the match Mourinho also admitted anyone not selected would not be part of the first-team.
