Adnan Januzaj will choose England as his international team if the Football Association can overcome the obstacle of the five-year residency rule.

The Manchester United winger born in Brussels to Kosovar-Albanian parents has already rejected the advances of Belgium as he considers his options.

But the Football Association have already been given a strong indication that the 18-year-old who is eligible to represent four other countries would prefer England.

Sources close to the Januzaj family have confirmed this as Sportsmail reveals the story behind the most wanted teenager in European football.

The key for the FA is how long Januzaj would have to wait for international clearance because after two years in England - he joined United at 16 - he has another three years before he would be considered eligible by FIFA to represent his adopted country.
