Januzaj With Belgium To World Cup?

Manchester United starlet, Adnan Januzaj, has been handed World Cup dream by Belgium national team manager, Marc Wilmots.

According to a report in the Belgium newspaper HLN, Wilmots wants to hold discussions with the 18-year-old regarding his international future.

Since his emergence with the Premier League champions, there has been constant speculation over which country Januzaj will choose to play for but with Wilmots now becoming directly involved, there is talk in Belgium that he could make the squad for the World Cup this summer.

The Belgium football federation have in the past tried to persuade Januzaj to represent them at youth level and more recently the senior team, but the teenager’s camp doesn't want to be rushed into a decision.

Januzaj has yet to play international football at any level due to the issues surrounding who he would like to play for.

His family are originally from Albania but moved to Belgium where Januzaj was born, so he is classed as a Belgian citizen.

Recently it was revealed that FIFA have given Kosovo the green light to form a national team and Januzaj’s father is keen for his son to play for Kosovo.

Belgium’s approaches have previously angered the Januzaj family and even England are trying to find a loophole around the Home Nations agreement and the FIFA residency rule in order for Januzaj to choose the Three Lions jersey.

However, United are believed to be concerned about the effect choosing England could have on their wonderkid and the pressure that might come with playing for England.

Can the United starlet add some more spark to Belgium's already impressive World Cup squad? Have your say in the comment section below.
