Man United ace in line for England call

Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj could commit his international future to England after rejecting advances from Kosovo, according to reports from The Telegraph.

The teenage ace is yet to declare his allegiance to a particular country in terms of football, with a combination of family ties and residency meaning that he is eligible to represent Belgium and Albania, as well as the Three Lions.

He was expected to declare for Kosovo – the nation both his parents have close links with – once they received the green light to start their own side.

However, it is understood that Januzaj will knock back their advances in favour of keeping his options open.

Kosovo are yet to be recognised as an official footballing country, which is seen as a drawback for Januzaj by his father, Abedin.

He is said to be keen to for his son to raise awareness of his trouble nation, and he could do so by representing another side.

With England the most high-profile outfit he could choose, there is the possibility that the 18-year-old winger may pull on the white shirt once he is eligible to do so in 2017.

Kosovo are still ineligible for official FIFA recognised competitions, but they are set to play their first game as an independent nation against Haiti soon.
