Manchester United rising star Adnan Januzaj is set to commit to playing for the England national side in the future, if the FA can do away with the five-year residency rule.

The Belgium born coveted midfielder with Kosovar-Albanian parents is eligible to play for 5 countries namely England, Belgium, Albania, Serbia, Turkey and Kosovo.

Having rejected a chance to play for Belgium in the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, the 19-year old is most likely to pick England.

However, the only obstacle could be that the Manchester United player still needs to spend a further three years in England before he would be considered eligible by FIFA to represent his adopted country.

The talented midielder will make an official statement only next year, but the English are said to be in pole position in securing the services of the superkid.
