Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj looks to have been promised a key role for Belgium at this summer’s World Cup. understands that the 19-year-old has repeatedly been asked to pledge his allegiance to the Belgian national side in the past, but he had previously turned them down due to the fierce competition for places in the squad.
However, with this summer’s World Cup now just a couple of months away, Januzaj may have been promised a key role in the side and possibly a starting spot in Brazil with his quick u-turn on which country to represent.
The young attacking midfielder has been the subject of plenty of attention this season with his fine performances for United, with big clubs showing an interest in snapping him up after the Red Devils have endured a frustrating campaign since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer. Januzaj’s nationality has also come into question, with the player being eligible to represent a number of different international teams such as Albania, Kosovo and possibly even England in a few years. Still, the United starlet could now be set to make a name for himself on the biggest stage this summer after being won over by Belgium, who can add him to a vast array of promising talents that will certainly make them one of the dark horses to win the tournament.
