Man United open to selling Januzaj this summer – report

Manchester United are willing to listen to offers for Adnan Januzaj this summer, ESPN FC report.
Januzaj, 22, spent last season on loan at Sunderland, but sources say he has not done enough to convince Jose Mourinho he deserves to be part of the first-team squad at United next term.
United are expected to ask for a fee between £8 million and £12m to allow the Belgium international to leave Old Trafford this summer. Januzaj still has a year left on the five-year United deal David Moyes sanctioned in October 2013.
However, he could still be part of the squad for United’s preseason tour of the United States in July if the club do not receive a suitable offer.
Andreas Pereira, who spent last season on loan at Granada, is also expected to be part of the party that travels to Los Angeles on July 9, but with a more realistic chance to earning a place in next season’s squad.
Mourinho and his coaching staff have been impressed with Pereira’s performances in La Liga, despite playing for a team which finished bottom of the table.
Januzaj was an unused substitute for Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game in charge against West Bromwich Albion in 2013 before making his breakthrough under Moyes.
He scored four goals in 35 games as a teenager during the 2013-14 season, but fell out of favour under Moyes’ successor Louis van Gaal.
Januzaj played 21 times during Van Gaal’s first season before being loaned to Borussia Dortmund at the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
He was recalled in January 2016 because of a lack of playing time in Germany, but after failing to win over Mourinho last summer, he was reunited with Moyes at Sunderland.
Januzaj made 28 appearances, scoring once, during a difficult season at the Stadium of Light, which included being booed by his own fans after he was substituted against Watford in April and the club getting relegated.
In April, Mourinho said he had already made his decision on Januzaj, but stopped short of revealing anything further.
