Man United star tells club he wants to leave after meeting with Mourinho

Daily Mail has reported that Adnan Januzaj wants to move out of Manchester United and has informed the same to the club. Januzaj met with Mourinho who wanted him to go out on loan but the Belgian wants to start afresh at a new club rather staying contracted to Manchester United.

Januzaj made his debut under David Moyes and there were reports that the Scot wants him at Sunderland. After a stunning debut season, Januzaj has struggled to make an impact and his progress has derailed. Last season on loan at Dortmund, the Belgian struggled and returned to Old Trafford halfway through the season.
