Adnan Januzaj is a teenage football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester United. He plays as a winger and is rated as one of the best young players in Europe.

Januzaj was born in the Belgian city of Brussels to Kosovar-Albanian parents, but he has yet to pledge his international allegiance to any country.

He commenced his career at FC Brussels and when he was 10 years of age, he joined Anderlecht’s youth academy.

In March 2011 when he was 16, he left the Belgian giants to join Manchester United’s youth system and has been at the Red Devils since then.

Januzaj was drafted into the first-team squad at the start of the 2013-14 campaign and made his competitive debut for David Moyes’s side on August 11, 2013 against Wigan Athletic in the FA Community Shield.

His Premier League debut came against Crystal Palace on September 14 and scored his first goals in a 2-1 comeback victory over Sunderland on October 5, 2013, finding the target twice.

Januzaj is eligible to play for Belgium at international level as he was born and raised in the country and also holds a Belgian passport. He is also eligible to feature for Albana through his ethnic Albanian parents and Serbia due to the disputed status of his parents’ homeland of Kosovo.
