Manchester United Confirm Croatia Chasing Their Teenage Star

CroatiaManchester United boss David Moyes says that Croatia are among a few countries chasing the services of his 18-year-old midfielder Adnan Januzaj.

Januzaj, who scored both of United’s goals on his Premier League debut against Sunderland on the weekend, was born in Belgium to Kosovan-Albanian parents. Although he qualifies to play for Belgium by birth and also Albania, Moyes says the English FA have already made enquiries about the former Anderlecht teenager.

“I think there is some way in which he could qualify for England,” Moyes confirmed. “I think it’s something to do with residency. It’s something like that [after living in England for five years].

“I think he has a choice of countries to play for. Obviously he has been called up by Belgium several times and chose not to at the moment. He’s wanted by Albania, Croatia and a few others. He can play for several countries and England as well.” Moyes confirmed to British media on the weekend.

Media reports that Januzaj could potentially qualify to play for Croatia through his mother, and the Croatian FA have also confirmed they are looking into it.

“We are working on it, maybe there could be something. Gives us a few days and we will make an official statement, Croatian FA’s Zorislav Srebric told daily Vecernji list.
